The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You
Lyrics Bryan Adams

I don't look good in no Armani suits
No Gucci shoes - or designer boots
I've tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there's just one thing that looks good on me

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on you

I'm not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file
Sometimes I think - I might be lookin' good
But there's only one thing that fits me like it should


Yeah it's you - it could only be you
Nobody else will ever do
Yeah baby it's you - that I stick to
Yeah we stick like glue...

[Chorus x3]
