D-F-G, G-F-D (verse chord pattern)
Some fellas look at the eyes
Some fellas look at the nose
Some fellas look at the size
Some fellas look at the clothes

D-G-D (rhythm changes slightly)
I don't care if her eyes are red
I don't care if her nose is long
I don't care if she's underfed
I don't care if her clothes are worn

A    G
my, oh my,
D
First I look at the purse!  (do D lick)


D-F-G, G-F-D (verse chord pattern)
Some fellas like the smiles they wear
Some fellas like the legs that's all
Some fellas like the style of their hair
Want their waist to be small.

D-G-D (rhythm changes slightly)
I don't care if their legs are thin
I don't care if their teeth are big
I don't care if their hair's a wig
Why waste time lookin' at the waistline?

A    G
My, oh my,
D
First I look at the purse!

(go right into bridge)

G               F
A woman can be fat as can be,
C               D 
kisses sweet as honey
G                     F 
But that don't mean a thing to me
C                   D
If you ain't got no money
E                       A
If the purse is fat....that's where it's at.

(Sax Solo over D-F-G, G-F-D (2x) chord pattern, then G-Bb-C, C-Bb-G (2x), EEEEE-AAAAA


D-F-G, G-F-D (verse chord pattern)
Some fellas like the way they walk
The way they swing and sway
Some fellas like the way they talk
Dig the things they say.

D-G-D (rhythm changes slightly)
I don't care if they wobble like a or talk with a lisp
I still think I'm a good lover if the dollar bills are crisp

A    G
my, oh my

D
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!

(verses below are spoken over D-F-G, G-F-D chord pattern with D lick)

I don't care if you got yourself a wrap
all I want is your pretty green cash
Bought me a suit, bought me a car
Want me to look like a hollywood star
Money, (Money!) I want money (Money!)
Baby, ain't no "why", baby (Money!)
I need money!

First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
