Well If you like your women short or tall
You like your girlfriends big or small
Just cruise on down to the corner stand
Give your money to the man!
A mugger carries a couple of knives
All I wanna do is look at readers wives

There's big blonde Betty, really nifty
She'll do a coach party for twelve dollars fifty
********* look far and near
For little Maria who'll do it for a beer
The old man watches and the young man jives
All I wanna do is look at readers wives

Some girls look like their just plain gifted
Others look like they're trained weightlifters
Little one stands at four foot three
While the big ones start at 44D
Quick, give me some coffee 'fore the police arrive
I only came out to look at readers wives

So If you like your women short or tall
You like your girlfriends big or small
Just cruise on down to the corner stand
Give your money to the man!
A mugger carries a couple of knives
All I wanna do is look at readers wives

Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
Readers, readers wives
The old man watches and the young man jives
All I wanna do is look at readers wives
