Track Name: The Effect I Have On Women
You know that feeling when you pass a handsome guy
In the mall or at a lunch buffet
He looks at you, you look at him and wonder
And he quickly turns around and walks away?

Yes I know that feeling well; it happens constantly.
Except with me it’s not guys it’s girls instead
I used to think that there was something wrong with me
But when I was young my mom took me aside and said:

That’s just the effect you have on women
They’re all too shy to talk to you
Honest, you’re an Adonis
And you’re pretty clever too (look at you)

Maybe most guys play a completely different sport than me,
So chances are slim of finding someone in my league
I guess I’m too intimidating for dating
And all the boys, well they’re just scared of me (probably)

Finding Mrs. Right is quite a challenge
Even Mrs. Right Now can be tricky
And it’s not for lack of options I’m alone – no:
I’m just really really really really picky.
That’s just the effect I have on women
That’s just the effect I have on men
That’s just the effect we have
What do you expect we’re an eleven out of ten
That’s just the effect he has on ladies
That’s just the effect she has on guys
If there were awards for effect
I bet we’d get the Nobel Prize

So if you detect an infectious effect
If you’re feeling a connection, strange and new
With all due respect,
that’s just the effect
we have on you
