Try Not to Look So Pretty
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


Try not to look so pretty
The next time that we meet
Please don't look so pretty
And I won't act so weak
Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

You walk in and steal my mind
But who gave you the right
To treat me like some useless thought
You know away each night

Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

You make it hard on me
But I'll try to pretend
That you're just a lovesick dream
That always has to end

Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

Try not to look so pretty
The next time that we meet
Please don't look so pretty
And I won't act so weak

Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

You walk in and steal my mind
Oh, but who gave you the right
To treat me like some useless thought
You throw away each night

Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

You make it hard on me
Oh, but I'll try to pretend
That you're jut a lovesick dream
That always has to end

Please don't look so pretty
You're lovely but it's just cruel
Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

Try not to look so pretty
And I'll try not to be your fool

If you do not love this then there is no hope for you. Exquisite.

Rene Gordon

i agree with that bro

Karen Jackson

Great song and artist!

Mary Meinzer

Still one of his loveliest songs

N8VSON

This guy holds country sacrosanct.  He can rock with the best, does a fantastic job on country rock yet, when it comes to the real heart of country, he's right there with all the country greats who have gone before.  This song (and others) is proof of that.  Kudos Dwight.  That, from one who isn't "in to" country.  But was raised on it.

My estranged girlfriend, Sandra, walked into my karaoke show at the Roadhouse & so I sang this song & teared up. She did “look so pretty” & I did act like a fool...

Vince Ryan

Just feel sorry for all the people who don't listen to his great music. Singer/Songwriter/Actor, and has nailed them all with precision seldom seen.
