A smile on your face
But not in your eyes
You're looking through me
You don't feel it inside

Get out and ride on, baby
Ride on, baby

I could pick your face out in an FBI file
You may look pretty but I can't say the same for your mind

You walk up to me
And try and look shy
The red around your eyes
Says that you ain't a child

Well I've seen your face in a trashy magazine
You know where you're going but I don't like the places you've been

I can pick your face out from the front or behind
You may look pretty but I can't say the same for your mind

Laugh it a bit
Give it a try
If I'm not impressed
You can still cry

By the time you're 30 you'll look 65
You won't look pretty and your friends will have kissed you goodbye

Ride on baby...
