Ugliest Girl In The World

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Bob Dylan

One of two songs Robert Hunter wrote with Bob Dylan.

The woman that I love, she got a hook in her nose
Her eyebrows meet, she wears second hand clothes
She speaks with a stutter and she walks with a hop
I don't know why I love her but I just can't stop

Chorus
You know I love her
Yeah I love her
I'm in love with the ugliest girl in the world

If I ever lose her I will go insane
I go half crazy when she calls my name
When she says babababababy I l-l-love you
There ain't nothing in the world that I wouldn't do

[chorus]

The woman that I love, she got two flat feet
Her knees knock together walking down the street
She cracks her knuckles and she snores in bed
She ain't much to look at but like I said

[chorus]

I don't mean to say that she got nothing goin'
She got a weird sense of humor that's all her own
When I get low she sets me on my feet
Got a five inch smile but her breath is sweet

[chorus]

The woman that I love she a got a prizefighter nose (note 1)
Cauliflower ears and a run in her hose
She speaks with a stutter and she walks with a hop
I don't know why I love her but I just can't stop

[chorus]
