Perfect 10
The Beautiful South Lyrics


She's a perfect 10, but she wears a 12
Baby keep a little 2 for me
She could be sweet 16, bustin' out at the seams
It's still love in the first degree

When he's at my gate, with a big fat 8
You want to see the smile on my face
And even at my door, with a poor poor 4
There ain't no man can replace
'Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it's toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight

If he's extra large well I'm in charge
I can work this thing on top
If he's XXL well what the hell
Every penny don't fit the slot

The anorexic chicks, the model 6
They don't hold no weight with me
Well 8 or 9, well that's just fine
But I like to hold something I can see

'Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it's toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight

I've bought a watch, to time your beauty
But I've had to fit a second hand
I've bought a calendar, and every month
Is taken up by lover man

'Cause we love our love,
in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it's toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight

'Cause we love our love, in different sizes
I love her body, especially the lies
Time takes it's toll, but not on the eyes
Promise me this, take me tonight

Okay here it is as there’s definite confusion about the lyrical meanings!

The chorus: we love our loves, in different sizes...🎵 ...
Time takes its toll but not on the eyes...
The song is a mixture of: big is beautiful, little is beautiful (although not Paul Heatons preference here) don’t matter what size you are you’re beautiful 😍

although they’re both favouring the larger proportioned people. As in: 🎵 Ana—-rexic chicks, the model 6, don’t hold no weight with me... well 8 or 9 that’s just fine but:

I like to hold something I can see 🎵

The meaning though when all said and done is beauty is in the eye of the beholder! we alllll beautiful. And beauty comes from within!

I know, I was there, they’re all about the love ❤️

In Dec 1998. I guy dragged me on the dance floor to this song. We married in 2007. Had two children in 2010 & 2011. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and died two years later. I’ve just played this for our kids telling them the story of how we met. X
Whatever your association with a song is, smile when you hear it. X

I came across this by random and read your comment. Made me cry. Sorry for your loss. You'll be the best mum ever. Stay strong, be a power to your kids. Let them be cheeky, let them be free spirits, let them enjoy life like you did and should still do now.

These guys dominated the radio in the 90's and now nobody talks about them. Such an undertated band

Growing up I loved this song! Now I'm older and I understand what it's all about it's like :o

@a deisinger it does. It's a little more artistic if you like
