Rod Stewart - Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? (Official Video)




"Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" is a song by British singer Rod Stewart from his 1978 album Blondes Have More Fun. It was written by Stewart, Carmine Appice and Duane Hitchings,[1] though it incorporates the melody from the song "Taj Mahal" by Jorge Ben Jor and the string arrangement from the song "Put Something Down On It" by Bobby Womack.


The song featured on Stewart's album Blondes Have More Fun, and was released as a single in November 1978. It spent one week at the top of the British charts in December 1978 and four weeks at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 in February 1979. Billboard ranked it number four on its Top Singles of 1979 year-end chart. It also topped the charts in Canada for four weeks and in Australia for two weeks.


Royalties from the song were donated to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and Stewart performed the song at the Music for UNICEF Concert at the United Nations General Assembly in January 1979.


Rolling Stone ranked the song at number 308 in its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.





Lyrics


Sugar, sugar


She sits alone waiting for suggestions

He's so nervous avoiding all the questions

His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding

Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking


If you want my body and you think I'm sexy

Come on sugar let me know

If you really need me just reach out and touch me

Come on honey tell me so

Tell me so baby


He's acting shy looking for an answer

Come on honey let's spend the night together

Now hold on a minute before we go much further

Give me a dime so I can phone my mother

They catch a cab to his high rise apartment

At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant


If you want my body and you think I'm sexy

Come on honey tell me so

If you really need me just reach out and touch me

Come on sugar let me know


His heart's beating like a drum

'Cos at last he's got this girl home

Relax baby now we're all alone


They wake at dawn 'cos all the birds are singing

Two total strangers but that ain't what they're thinking

Outside it's cold, misty and it's raining

They got each other neither one's complaining

He say's I'm sorry but I'm out of milk and coffee

Never mind sugar we can watch the early movie


If you want my body and you think I'm sexy

Come on sugar let me know

If you really need me just reach out and touch me

Come on honey tell me so


If you really need me just reach out and touch me

Come on sugar let me know

If you really, really, really, really need me

Just let me know

Just reach out and touch me

If you really want me

Just reach out and touch me

Come on sugar let me know

If you really need me just reach out and touch me

Come on sugar let me know

If you, if you, if you really need me

Just come on and tell me so
