Perfect 10

The Beautiful South, are a UK band that have released some quirky songs. Perfect 10 is one of those songs that perfectly sums up how the world should be. I hope the link to the video works for you all.

The song celebrates the diversity of the human form and how body size isn’t as important as the media portrays… 

Here are the lyrics, so you can sing along 😊

She’s a perfect 10, but she wears a 12
Baby keep a little 2 for me
She could be sweet 16, bustin’ out at the seams
It’s still love in the first degree
When he’s at my gate, with a big fat 8
You want to see the smile on my face
And even at my door, with a poor poor 4
There ain’t no man can replace
‘Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it’s toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight
If he’s extra large well I’m in charge
I can work this thing on top
If he’s XXL well what the hell
Every penny don’t fit the slot
The anorexic chicks, the model 6
They don’t hold no weight with me
Well 8 or 9, well that’s just fine
But I like to hold something I can see
‘Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it’s toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight
I’ve bought a watch, to time your beauty
But I’ve had to fit a second hand
I’ve bought a calendar, and every month
Is taken up by lover man
‘Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it’s toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight
‘Cause we love our love, in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it’s toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight
Songwriters: Dave Rotheray / Paul Heaton
