{Hook} - Look at the way you look

(Kanye West)

Giva fuck, what you thank cuz I'm killing em

Doing the dam thang, wit the Lui shampagne
Life is a beach but look what the sand brang's
Pullin mo' bitches than old people & ham strang's
I'm something like a hundred dolla bill when you on't
Spend nothing, I can't change unless I met that
Special chick who's alway's around me
Something like my neckalace & don't eva try
Ta clown me that's why you on da special list
Had my heart from the start you myy specialist
Baby girl you gorgeous like them marblefloor's is
You picture perfect so I put you right by my side
Where the award's is ya Kelly from Saved By The Bell

Hook} - Look at the way you look
You flyer than fly waz
You do what I doe's
Ya body is far away & I'm
Tryin be ya tourist
Would call yah s*** but you got

To much class for that so I'm'ma

Love the way you make the ball's go back & forth
Like a tennis game, the chemistry is wonderful
And might I finish sayin there's a coup full
Of love in this hour glass so drop ya minute mane

Sometime's you on't wanna rain on people's parade
But then you have to snow, cuz most of the time they just

Hook} - Look at the way you look
You flyer than fly waz
You do what I doe's
Ya body is far away & I'm
Tryin be ya tourist
Would call yah s*** but you got
To much class for that so I'm'ma
Just say Gorgeous

“Gorgeous” sees Kanye describing the ugly nature of social injustice in America, ironically calling the nation “gorgeous” because of it. Recorded during his self-imposed exile in Hawaii, West formed the track with elements from The Turtles’ 1968 single, “You Showed Me.” The lush and electric guitar riff present throughout the song stems from Enoch Light and the Glittering Guitars’ 1969 cover of the same Turtles' song. West reclusively worked with artists he was familiar with during his time in Hawaii, leading to Kid Cudi singing the chorus. In an interview with MTV, Cudi revealed that he had to lie in order to get on the song: "‘Gorgeous’ was one of those records that, as soon as I heard the beat, I was like, ‘Man, this is the one.‘ […] I came up to him, and I was like, ‘Man, are you working on this record? Are you working on this beat?’ He goes, ‘Yeah, do you got an idea for it?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I might.’ I didn’t. I was lying like a motherfucker…" Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon initially had no interest to feature on the track. He was later convinced by RZA, who assisted on “Dark Fantasy" and “So Appalled,” to work with Kanye. Regarding the collaboration, Raekwon said: "The first thing I can tell you about Kanye West is that he’s a hard worker. When you look at him, you can tell that he still has that whole hip-hop thing in his bones."
