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.

CHORUS:
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.
