Shes my favorite dish , my cup of tea
What's wrong with her is alright by me
She's my ying and yang , my everything
She makes my life complete

Likes her coffee sweet I take it black
She can make me cry , I try to make her laugh
She gets dressed for work and turns to me
Do you think this looks ok ?
And I say...

You look great, very nice
Whatever you paid
It's worth twice the price
I don't know why she takes the time
To even ask
Cause she's always looking good
She's my better half

She's my confidant , my attache
A diplomat When I don't get my way
She's a chef dejour And so much more
The keeper of my flame

Sometimes my collar might need turned down
maybe my shirt is a little too loud
I check with her before we go out
Do you think this looks ok?...
And she says..


I'd be lost without her and her love
And I know I don't tell her near enough ...

You look great, very nice
Whatever you paid
It's worth twice the price
I don't know why you take the time
To even ask
Cause you're always looking good
You're My better half

Yeah she's always looking good
A little better than she should
She's always looking good ...
She's my better half

Great instrumentation, lyrics, hook and originality. Very nice! Great job!

I like the way the song moves when you say "ask". Dobro is nice...very pleasing sound that balances well with the vocals. I wonder how it would be sung to you instead of she?

I love this song! I love the lyrics, the melody and the clever language. This is the kind of song that Brad Paisley would sing.
