Song Lyric Sunday: Threads – ‘Sharp-Dressed Man’

Sartorial elegance is the order of the day for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, so here’s a well-known catchy little number by ZZ Top that fits the brief and probably requires no further introduction.

I saw ZZ Top once, at the old Wembley Arena back in the nineties. They were okay…

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’s 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’s 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’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man

Written by Frank Beard, Billy Gibbons and Joe Hill
