Song Meaning
Verse 1
Pretty women
Fascinating
Sippin' coffee
Dancing, pretty women
Are a wonder, pretty women
Sitting in the window or
Standing on the stair
Something in them cheers the air
Pretty women
Silhouetted
Stay within you
Glancing stay forever
Breathing lightly, pretty women
Pretty women
Blowing out their candles or
Combing out their hair
Even when they leave
They still are there
They're there
Verse 2
Sipping coffee
Here's to the ladies who lunch
Everybody laugh
Lounging in their caftans and
Planning a brunch
On their own behalf
Off to the gym
Then to a fitting
Claiming they're fat
And looking grim
'Cause they've been sitting
Choosing a hat
I'll drink to that!
Verse 3
Here's to the girls who just watch
Aren't they the best
When they get depressed
It's a bottle of scotch
Plus a little jest!
Another chance to disapprove
Another brilliant zinger
Another reason not to move
Another vodka stinger
I'll drink to that!
Verse 4
And here's to the girls who play wife
Aren't they too much
Keeping house but clutching a copy of "Life"
Just to keep in touch
The ones who follow the rules
And meet themselves at the schools
Too busy to know that they're fools
Aren't they a gem
I'll drink to them
Let's all drink to
Verse 5
Pretty women, fascinating
How they make a man sing
Verse 6
Here's to the girls on the go
Everybody tries
Look into their eyes
And you'll see what they know
Everybody dies
A toast to that invincible bunch
The dinosaurs surviving the crunch
Let's hear it for the ladies who lunch
Everybody rise
Everybody rise
Verse 7
Pretty women at their mirrors
In their gardens
On committees, telephoning
Window shopping table hopping
Pretty women giving parties
Never stopping
Gossip swapping, capsule popping
Verse 8
Everybody rise, everybody rise
Everybody rise
Rise, rise, rise, rise
Pretty women rise!
