  • What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

    My heart's achin' 'cause I can't ignore you
    My heart's breakin' 'cause I can't reward you
    What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

    Feel like you're dyin' for beauty's sake
    Say that you're lyin' for beauty's sake
    Who cares what you're feeling ?
    You've lost and you're dealing for beauty's sake

    In your circle you hold supreme sway
    Can you imagine not getting your own way?
    What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

    My heart's achin' 'cause I can't ignore you
    My heart's breakin' 'cause I can't reward you
    What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

    You stand astride the city takin' it all in
    Lyin' before the fire, admiring your own skin
    Beautiful and dumb, avarice and handsome
    What can I do ? What can I do ?
    What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul ?

    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
    What are you takin'?
    What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
