The Way I Look Tonight

So, I suppose you want to ask me what happened to my little finger.

 

I could tell you exactly what happened, when, and why it looks this way.

 

But that would ruin the fun,                                                         wouldn’t it?

 

Because once I tell you what happened to my little finger

you’ll no longer look at it the same way you used to.

 

Once I tell you what happened to my little finger,

the only words that will come out of your mouth will be,

” O h . “

 

You don’t really care what happened to my little finger. I know that.

 

THE REALITY IS,

you don’t care what happened to my little finger.

 

YOU LIKE THE WAY YOUR OWN LITTLE FINGER LOOKS

compared to mine.

 

So why would I tell you?
