Lyrics for singles by Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show

Only Sixteen
When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman
Cover of the Rolling Stone
A Little Bit More



Only Sixteen

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
But I loved her so
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

We'd laugh and we'd sing and do funny things
And it made our hearts glow
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

So why did I give my heart so fast
It never will happen again
But I was a mere child of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
Ooh, with eyes that would glow
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

So why did I give my heart so fast
It never will happen again
But I was a mere child of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

Now she was only sixteen, only sixteen
Ooh, but I loved that girl so
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Yes, she was too young to fall in love
And I, I was too young
I was much too young to know




When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman

When you're in love with a beautiful woman
It's hard
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You know it's hard
Everybody wants her
Everybody loves her
Everybody wants to take your baby home

When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You watch your friends
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
It never ends
You know that it's crazy
You want to trust her
Then somebody hangs up when you answer the phone
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You go it alone

Maybe it's just an ego problem
Problem is, Iv'e been fooled before
By fair weathered friends and faint hearted lovers
And everytime it happens
It just convinces me more

When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You watch her eyes
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You look for lies
Everybody tempts her
Everybody tells her
She's the most beautiful woman they know

When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You go it alone
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You watch your friends
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You watch her eyes
When you're in love with a beautiful woman
You keep looking for lies




Cover of the Rolling Stone

[ I don't believe it. ]
[ Hey Ray, hey Sugar, tell 'em who we are. ]

Well, we're big rock singers
We got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go   [ that sounds like us ]
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten thousand dollars a show  [ right ]
We take all kind of pills
That give us all kind of thrills
But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

Rollin' Stone
Wanna see my picture on the cover  [ Stone ]
Wanna buy five copies for my mother  [ Yeah! ]
Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

[ That's a very very good idea ]

I got a freaky old lady named a Cole King Katy who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ol' grey haired daddy, drivin' my limousine

Now it's all designed to blow our minds
But our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

[chorus]

[spoken]
Hey, I know how...ROCK AND ROLL!
[lame guitar solo]
Awww, dats beautiful

We got a lot of teenage blue-eyed groupies who'll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru, he's teachin' us a better way
We got all the friends that money can buy, so we'll never have to be alone
And we keep gettin' richer
But we can't get our picture
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone

Rollin' Stone
Wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother  [ I want one! ]
Wanna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone
On the cover of the Rollin' ---
Wanna see my picture on the cover    [ I don't know why we ain't on the cover, baby ]
Gonna buy five copies for my mother  [ we're beautiful fellows    ]
Wanna see my smiling face,           [ I ain't kidding ya         ]
On the cover the cover of the Rollin Stone [ Ah, we would make a beautiful cover     ]

[ the first shot, right up front man, I can see it now... ]
[ we would be on the front smilin' man, ahhhhh beautiful ]




A Little Bit More

When your body's had enough of me
And I'm layin flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can
I'm gonna love you a little bit more

Come on over here and lay by my side
I've got to be touchin you
Let me rub your tired shoulders
The way I used to do
Look into my eyes and give me that smile
The one that always turns me on
And let me take your hair down
Cause we're stayin up to greet the sun.....

And when your body's had enough of me
And I'm layin flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can
I'm gonna love you a little bit more

Got to say a few things that have been on my mind
And you know where my mind has been
I guess I learned my lessons
And now's the time to begin
So if you're feelin allright and you're ready for me
I know that I'm ready for you
We better get it on now
Cause we got a whole life to live through.....

And when your body's had enough of me
And I'm layin flat on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can
I'm gonna love you a little bit more
