Girls Don't Look

I’ve read these things in magazines
So often that I might believe
This perverted etiquette
Is the rule of love, whatever that might mean
From all my big mistakes I’ve learnt
The love that lasts ain’t one that burns
I’ll keep my wise words to myself
We move on every time the world completes a turn

Girls don’t look for love these days
They’re more like boys in many ways
They want someone to brag about
Girls like that I can do without

My friends saw sense while I flew blind
My showcase days are left behind
The table setting there for me
Is not the place where, these days, I drink my wine
There’s every chance I’ll be ensnared
By some well-meaning predator
Every girl who comes my way
Has time to fit me in round her career

Girls don’t look for love these days
They’re more like boys in many ways
They want someone to brag about
Girls like that I can do without

Girls don’t look for love these days
Girls don’t look for love these days
They want someone to brag about
Girls like that I can do without
I can do without ’em
