Sophisticated lady tryin' to change my ways
Just because you're caught in your social maze
I think it's 'bout time that you realize 
Your money and your power's got you mesmerized 

 Pretty lady, get back
 Pretty lady, yea
 Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

 Educated lady with your college degree
 Amazes me why you just can't see
 Learned everything from your books on the shelf 
But no one ever taught you how to think for yourself 

 Pretty lady, get back
 Pretty lady, yea, sweet thing
 Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

 Sophisticated lady take a lesson from me
I can help you be what you want to be
 Together we'll see many brighter days
If it takes forever, gonna change your ways

 Pretty lady, get back
 Pretty lady, yea, sweet thing
 Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

 Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

 Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone
