ALBUM: Eliminator

YEAR: 1983

WRITERS: Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard

LYRICS: Clean shirt, new shoes And I don't know where I am goin' to. Silk suit, black tie, I don't need a reason why. They come runnin' just as fast as they can 'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man. Gold watch, diamond ring, I ain't missin' not a single thing. And cuff links, stick pin, When I step out I'm gonna do you in. They come runnin' just as fast as they can 'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man. Top coat, top hat, I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat. Black shades, white gloves, Lookin' sharp and lookin' for love. They come runnin' just as fast as they can 'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
