Sophistophone, aristocrats
Distinguished stars, clean up your acts
Pull up your pants, ladies and gents
Please, act like you got some sense
You know what I really want to know?
Where do all the good girls go
What clubs they hang at?

Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap, you deserve it all
Behold a lady (Candy-coated unicorns are quite hard to find)
I see you standin' on the wall (The classic lady, a rare breed indeed)
Clap, clap, you deserve it all (Is that make and model discontinued?)

Today I might snow, tomorrow I'll rain
3000's always changing but you stay the same
And I need that, hey I need that (In my life)
When I feel washed up and inadequate
And throw all my songs away, no matter how mad I get
You make me smile, you make me smile
You make me smile, you make me
You're the anchor that holds me down
When my ship is sinking
You won't let me drown and I'm grateful

Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap, you deserve it all
Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap, you deserve it all

Yo' mama's old fashioned, yo' daddy don't play
You'll always be this lovely
'Cause they raised you that way
Hallelujah! Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
Thank ya Jesus! Thank ya Lord!
You're not extra extra, you're so plain Jane
The yin to my yang, darlin'
You've got that thang and you know it
But yet you don't and that's what's so cool
You don't say too much, but when you do it's profound
In the street you hold your head high
At home you get low down for me
(Can't get no lower, can't get no lower, can't get no lower, yeah!)
Hoo! You're the anchor that holds me down
When my ship is sinking, you won't let me drown

Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums
To see what a lady looks like
So if you find one, I beg of you, hold her tight
If you spot one, good sir, treat her right
Benjamin Andre signing off
Thanks a million
Good luck and goodnight.

Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap, you deserve it all
Behold a lady
I see you standin' on the wall
Clap, clap, you deserve it all
