Oh Pretty Woman was originally a hit for the Texan Roy Orbinson in 1964. It was a hit again in 1990 when it inspired the title of the film Pretty Woman, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.

Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman
I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you
Mercy

Pretty woman, won't you pardon me?
Pretty woman, I couldn't help but see
Pretty woman
That you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me?

Pretty woman, stop a while
Pretty woman, talk a while
Pretty woman, give your smile to me
Pretty woman, yeah yeah yeah
Pretty woman, look my way
Pretty woman, say you'll stay with me
'Cause I need you, I'll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight

Pretty woman, don't walk on by
Pretty woman, don't make me cry
Pretty woman, don't walk away, hey...okay
If that's the way it must be, okay
I guess I'll go on home, it's late
There'll be tomorrow nigh, but wait
What do I see?
Is she walking back to me
Yeah, she's walking back to me
Oh, oh, Pretty woman

lovely as can be= really beautiful

mercy= don't make me suffer

won't you pardon me?= please, forgive me

I couldn't help but see= It was impossible not to see

I'll treat you right= I will be good to you, I will treat you well
