Male Ego
1985

From The Beach Boys
Male ego walking down the street Sees something looking hot and sweet Hey, baby would you like to meet me tonight? Male ego is a worldwide game We love the ladies more than wealth and fame Lots of girls running through my brain tonight Male ego is played by all Chasing ladies and having a ball Hey girl, I'm going to give you a call tonight Don't know why we love to chase those tasty ladies Betcha boys we'll be doing it in our eighties! Male ego's like a game of chance The gamble starts with just a glance You're off and running with a new romance tonight Male ego won't ever quit It seems to me from where I sit We ought to do our bit to capture it tonight You look nice, what's your name? You smell nice, what's your name? I like you, what's your name? I like you, what's your name? You look nice, what's your name?
