Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Music Lyrics explained 19.
All right. The song today is a Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison.That's the one we're
going cover. Yeah. Roy Orbison originally had a really big hit with this song in
the 1960s in the mid-1960s and then of course he got a revival like
around 1990 when the movie Pretty Woman came out and it played that song again.
And he kind of was able to almost get a bit of a comeback at that time. Even
though he had a pretty good career he had some other big hits besides this one.
It's a little ironic in a way though because in real life Roy Orbison
actually, he was kind of partially visually impaired. He wasn't blind but
his sight was really really bad. It was really really poor. He had dark glasses. He
always wore these dark glasses. So you sometimes wondered I mean can he really
distinguish pretty women or or not. But anyway it was it was always a good song.
It was a catchy song. It's a classic and you still hear it all the time now. So
let's get into it. Just like usual you know, I'll read the lyrics and the song
and I'll explain any words that need to be sung. So let's start. This is how it
how it begins. Pretty woman walking down the street. Pretty woman the kind I'd
like to meet. Pretty woman I don't believe you, you're not the truth. No one
could look as good as you. And then he says 'mercy.' All right. All
right. So let's cover this. A pretty woman walking down the street. Of course, so he
probably sees her passing by. Pretty woman the kind I like to meet. Well,
most guys like to meet pretty women. So that's not that unusual. A pretty woman, I
don't believe you, you're not the truth. All right. This is the first line I point
out here. Basically, he's saying you're too good to be true . How is it possible
that you could be this beautiful ?i It's almost like a dream. Basically, no one
could look as good as you. So you know, you almost can't be real. How can you be
that beautiful ? And then of course he says 'mercy. \" Like like have mercy on me.
You know, well alleviate my distress. You, you
you're so beautiful that you make me want to you know, meet you or desire you.
Can't you relieve my, my , my pain my ache of , you know, relieve my distress.
Have compassion for me. So mercy you know, So that's what he would say. All right.
Good and then it goes on to the next chorus. Pretty woman
won't you pardon me. Pretty woman I couldn't help but see. Pretty woman, that
you look lonely as can be. Are you lonely just like me ? And then he gives like a
little a ... well I guess they describe it as a growl, but it sounded more like a
purr. It was like you know, he does something like that Whoa ! Well it gets him so
excited. All right. So let's go on then. So pretty woman won't you pardon me.
Remember you pardon, you, you forgive somebody for doing or saying something
wrong or maybe he means for for him desiring her so much. Could you forgive me ?
Won't you pardon me. Pretty woman I couldn't help but see. You know, you're
just too beautiful. I couldn't help that. Remember any time you say, you couldn't
help but do something. This phrase basically means that no one ... that you
can't control your emotions, or your desire or your behavior. I couldn't help
but see. Pretty woman that you look lonely just like me. Yeah. Pretty .... are
you lonely ? Just like me. Yeah, yeah. That you look
lovely as can be. All right. Well, lovely meaning very attractive or easy to like.
That you look lovely as can be. Are you lonely just like me ? And then of course
he gives that growl. I don't know something like that. All right. Let's go on. Go
to the next chorus. Pretty woman stop a while. Pretty woman, talk a while.
Pretty woman give your smile to me. Pretty woman yeah, yeah , yeah. Pretty woman
look my way. Pretty woman. Say you'll stay with me , because
I need you. I'll treat you right. Come with me baby. Be mine tonight. And then it goes (instrumental music) Of course,
the instrumental was pretty good. All right. So let's go over that. Pretty woman stop a while
You know, like stop hey! Stop.talk to me. Pretty woman talk a while. Pretty woman
give me your smile. You know like smile at me. Pretty woman yeah, yeah, yeah. Pretty
woman look my way. All right. So look in my direction. Look my way.
Pretty woman say you'll stay with me. Cuz, cuz of course meaning because of course.
I need you I'll treat you right. Well you know, if you ... if you come with me, if you
you know, meet me become my girlfriend I'll be good to you. I won't mistreat you right.
Come with me baby. Be mine tonight. And then he goes on and on. Okay. So all right.
Let's go to the next part. It goes pretty woman. Don't walk on by. Pretty woman
don't make me cry. Pretty woman don't walk away
Hey. Oh if that's the way, it must be. Okay. Okay and then then it goes (instrumental music)
That's of course other instrumental part goes. So
pretty woman don't walk on by me. Don't pass me by. If we walk on by you. don't,
don't just walk on by. Stop. Talk to me. Pretty woman don't make me cry ( crying sounds) Don't
make me cry Pretty woman. Don't walk away hey ! Oh if that's the way it must be. Okay.
Okay well, I guess that's the way life is. All right. Well, I tried. Okay. Let's
continue. Let's go to the next verse. I guess , I guess I'll go home it's
late. They'll be , they'll be tomorrow night but wait, What do I see ? And then
of course it goes back into the instrumental again. (instrumental music ) Is she walking back
to me ? Yeah. She's walking back to me . Oh
Pretty woman. And that's how it goes. So yeah. That's actually a pretty simple
song. It's not as much to explain but I guess I'll go home it's late. So he was,
he was just about to give up actually. They'll be tomorrow night. But wait you
know, Maybe , maybe, another day I'll be luckier. What do I see ? Is she walking
back to me ? Maybe, maybe he did get her attention. Who knows ?
Yeah. She's walking back to me. Oh pretty woman . Yeah. Well, again. i t was a very catchy
song. It's a classic. I'm sure most of you know it. I'm sure you probably... if you're
old enough you definitely remember it. From the ...from the movie Pretty
Woman. But it was a classic song before that. It's always replayed even till
today. You'll still hear this song. You know, classic rock music. Okay. Anyway, I
hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
