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
