Hey there Georgie, got a couple of things to say.
One you're my friend, and two it's hurting me seeing you act this way.
          But my hands are tied & I can only try to talk you out of  a  fall.
'Cause the reputation of the woman you're dating's
     'bout as nasty as the Berlin wall.

Slow down Georgie she's poison.   Man you've got to watch yourself.
She's gonna get in your head, she's gonna crawl in your bed.
You're just a stepping stone for someone else.
Slow down Georgie she's poison.   She's just another divorcee.
An undercover lover of a hundred other little fish in the sea.  Oh-oh-oh-oh.

You better cut her loose before she gets her hooks in you.
If you gave her the world, and it was covered in pearls - 
     she'd only ask for the moon.
            She's got you hypnotized, with her big brown eyes -
     and a body that could stop  a  clock.
But if you think your face ain't gonna be replaced -
     Georgie boy you're in for a shock.

Well it ain't my job to rain on your parade.
But if the chips were down, you'd do the same for me - s'always been that way
She's got you paralyzed with a pack of lies about honor and the single girl.
And if you buy that line you must be out of your mind.
     You must be living in another world.
