Song: This Charming Man

Every girl appreciates a charming man but even more than that, I think we all understand not having "a stitch to wear" when going out for a night even more - especially in the Hamptons. With all these events and parties, Heaven forbid you get photographed in the same thing twice. At least we're lucky enough to live in a house of three girls ( + Rachelle). The recession friendly clothes swapping definitely helps our wardrobes. We have a feeling that wasn't the main concern of this song even if it is one of ours. Regardless, enjoy! It's a good one.

LYRICS:

On two bicycles On a hillside desolate Could nature make a man of me yet?

Under this charming calm, This charming man

Why ponder life's complexities When the leather runs smooth On the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight But I haven't got a stitch to wear This man said it's crucial That someone so handsome should care

I'm just a country-boy Who never knew his place He said return the ring He knows so much about these things He knows so much about these things

I would go out tonight But I haven't got a stitch to wear This man said it's crucial That someone so handsome should care La, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charming man ... La, la-la, la-la, la-la, this charming man ...

I'm just a country-boy Who never knew his place He said return the ring He knows so much about these things He knows so much about these things
