What I Like Most About You Is Your Girlfriend

Hello and how are you and how do you do
And who is that girl sitting right next to you
And what is her name and what does she do
I'm looking at her while I'm talking to you

Can I buy you a drink, you seem a decent chap
I'm friendly to your face but behind your back
What I like most about you is your girlfriend
It's true

Hello and how are you and how do you do
How very interesting the things that you do
I agree with what you say, I think that it's true
But your girlfriend is what I like most about you

What I like most about you is your girlfriend
It's true

When will we meet again and where will it be
Why don't you both come over to my house for tea
I'd rather she came round on her own, yes it's true
Your girlfriend has only got one fault and that's you

What I like most about you is your girlfriend
And it's true
