The perfect Girl
Verse
Youíve been searching for the perfect girl.
Youíve been overlooking pearls.
Youíve been looking but youíre not finding
The one who will change your world.
Chorus
Oh you can want what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.
Verse
Donít have blue eyes like you imagined.
But sheíll make you feel alive.
Sheíll make you laugh as if by magic.
But the truth you still deny.
Chorus
Oh you can want what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.
Bridge
You went searching for a diamond
Found yourself a peal.
Maybe itís time you realized.
Sheís the perfect girl.
Chorus
Oh you can want what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.

Good lyrics but...
in a bridge, it is strongly recommended to NOT use the title of the song.

I think that you should rewrite the bridge.

Have fun!

The perfect girl (or guy) is often a very elusive find. Was for the most part never really easy for me, but looking back now I realize that at the time I probably was pushing too hard, trying to make up for lost time. I grew up in boarding school and didn't have my first real date until I was 26. Had chances but by that time I was taken in by the freewheeling single lifestyle. Currently I have had one primary girlfriend for the last several years but only get together average every couple of weeks because these days it's just too expensive to go out continuously even though I haven't totally lost interest in that lifestyle; just not possible today. And I believe, contrary to what some will say, that the advent of the Internet has actually made it harder, not easier, to meet others. Maybe the solitary life isn't so bad after all, as in this song which put Neil Diamond on the musical map.

Great song! I think too many people miss out on opportunites to find happiness by chasing unrealistic ideals.

Hi CK,
You don't know me but I have this thing about syllables. This idea has been done a number of times and is worth redoing a number more because it's a good hook. a few suggestions. keep or sweep.

Youíve been searching for the perfect girl.
Youíve been overlooking (Many) pearls.
Youíve been looking but youíre (never) finding
The one who will change your world.
Chorus
Oh you can want (Just) what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.
Verse
Donít have eyes (The color) you imagined.
But sheíll make you feel (So) alive.
Sheíll make you laugh as if by magic.
But the truth you still (try to) deny.
Chorus
Oh you can want what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.
Bridge
You went searching for a diamond
Found yourself a peal.
Maybe itís time you realized.
Sheís the perfect girl.
Chorus
Oh you can want what you want
But boy you ainít no prize.
The perfect girl for you is
Right there before your eyes.

And agree, no hook in the bridge.


Have a goodun,
