Downside

A friend of mine broke up with his girl
Even though she was his world
He said "As time went on, it wasn't the same"

He said "Her legs were long and her face was pretty
And her chest was the size of Salt Lake City,
But between you and me my friend, she was short on brains."

When I asked him for an explanation
Of this most unusual observation
He said "Of our relation, my heart wasn't in it."

"Sure there physical stimulation
And we made love for endless durations
But she couldnt' hold a conversation, not even for a minute."

I said I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
The downside don't look clear to me

I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
If that's your troubles brother, give 'em to me

I said I broke up with my girl too
So I know what you're going through
Cause that was a week ago, and here we are

Her words were long, and man, she was smart
She knew the Periodic Table by heart
She even helped me program my VCR

But for everything she had an explanation
And that just built up my frustration
I was looking for copulation. and I'd settle for a little

There was plenty of mental stimulation
But making love was pure aggravation
Cause she's start a conversation right in the middle

He said "I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
The downside don't look clear to me

I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
If that's your troubles brother, give 'em to me"

The grass is always greener on the other side
But no grass could be green enough for these two guys
Of course I'm speaking metaphorically, so don't get wise."

Now the bartender laughs and she says "Listen,
There's a certain persepctive you seem to be missing
So how about a woman's point of view?

"You want a woman who's smart but not
And you want a girl who's shy but hot
And if that woman exists, why would she date you?

"You know I'm here all day with nothing to do
But sit and listen to clowns like you
Moaning and whining like some pathetic slob

"I know you're down and I know you're hurtin'
But I also know one thing for certain -
If guys were ever happy I'd be out of a job"

And so I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
The downside don't look clear to me

I fail to see the downside
Fail to see the downside
If that's your troubles brother, give 'em to me
