That Don't Impress Me Much

Lyrics

playI've known a few guys
playwho thought they were pretty smart
playBut you've got being right down to an art
playYou think you're a genius
playyou drive me up the wall
playYou're a regular original know-it-all

playOh-oo-oh, you think you're special
playOh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

playOkay, so you're a rocket scientist
playThat don't impress me much
playSo you got the brains,
playbut have you got the touch
playDon't get me wrong, I think you're alright
playBut that won't keep me warm
playin the middle of the night
playThat don't impress me much

playI never knew a guy
playwho carried a mirror in his pocket
playAnd a comb up his sleeve - just in case
playAnd all that extra hold gel in your hair
playoughtta lock it
play'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall out of place

playOh-oo-oh, you think you're special
playOh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

playOkay, so you're Brad Pitt
playThat don't impress me much
playSo you got the looks, but have you got the touch
playDon't get me wrong, yeah, I think you're alright
playBut that won't keep me warm
playin the middle of the night
playThat don't impress me much

playYou're one of those guys
playthat likes to shine his machine
playYou make me take off my shoes
playbefore you let me get in
playI can't believe you kiss your car
playgood night
playC'mon, baby, tell me -
playyou must be joking right!

playOh-oo-oh, you think you're special
playOh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

playOkay, so you've got a car
playThat don't impress me much
playSo you got the moves,
playbut have you got the touch
playDon't get me wrong, yeah,
playI think you're alright
playBut that won't keep me warm
playin the middle of the night

playThat don't impress me much
playYou think you're cool
playbut have you got the touch
playDon't get me wrong, yeah,
playI think you're alright
playBut that won't keep me warm
playon the long, cold, lonely night
playThat don't impress me much

playOkay, so what do you think,
playyou're Elvis or something?
playWhatever
playThat don't impress me
playThat don't impress me

“I remember I had a girl friend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies. I was writing this album and there was a scandal of [Pitt] and Gwyneth [Paltrow] where there was naked photos of him [in Playgirl magazine, which Pitt later successfully sued for publishing the paparazzi photos]. And this was like all the rage. I just thought 'I don't know what all the fuss is about.' I'm like, well that don't impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss. We see people naked every day. That's really what I thought. I wasn't picking on Brad Pitt. But that was just the association in that moment and things we make fusses about and whatever. Of course, it could have been any gorgeous guy.”
