Oh, Pretty Woman (1964) – Roy Orbison

Pretty woman, walking’ down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as good as you, mercy.

據稱歌曲名稱靈感由來是因為Roy Orbison的老婆一事,她向Roy Orbison告知要外出,正當Roy Orbison問老婆是否需要錢的時候,Bill Dees便插嘴說「正妹是不需要任何金錢」"A pretty woman never needs any money"

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由Roy Orbison及Bill Dees創作

Pretty woman, walking’ down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as good as you, mercy.

Pretty woman won’t you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn’t help but see
Pretty woman that you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me.

Pretty woman stop awhile
Pretty woman talk awhile
Pretty woman give your smile to me
Pretty woman yeah, yeah, yeah
Pretty woman look my way
Pretty woman say you’ll stay with me
Cause I need you, I’ll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight

Pretty woman don’t walk on by
Pretty woman don’t make me cry
Pretty woman don’t walk away, hey, OK
If that’s the way it must be, OK
I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
There’ll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see?
Is she walking’ back to me?
Yeah, she’s walking’ back to me
Oh, oh, pretty woman.
