You’re Such a Good Looking Woman Lyrics

 

You’re Such a Good Looking Woman Lyrics Sung by Joe Dolan

When God created a woman for me
he must have been in a beautiful mood
to show the world what a woman could be
when he created a woman like you.
He made the sunshine right out of your eyes
he made the moonglow all over your hair
he put a soft summer breeze in your sighs
so you could breath summer into the air.

Oh me oh my you make me sigh
you’re such a good looking woman
when people stop and people stare
you know it fills my heart with pride
you watch their eyes they’re so surprised
they think you’ve fallen out of heaven
and if you listen to what they’re talking about
they’re talking about who’s walking about
with an angel at his side.

Up there in heaven I bet the are mad
I bet somebody will want to know why
the most incredible angel they had
was found to be quite unable to fly
D’you know what they had forgotten to do
up there where they make all those heavenly things
they made an angel as lovely as you
but they’d forgotten to fit you with wings.

Oh me oh my you make me sigh
you’re such a good looking woman
when people stop and people stare
you know it fills my heart with pride
you watch their eyes they’re so surprised
they think you’ve fallen out of heaven
and if you listen to what they’re talking about
they’re talking about who’s walking about
with an angel at his side.

 Some Facts About Joe Dolan and You’re Such a Good Looking Woman Lyrics

Joe Dolan was born at the Irish County Hospital Mullingar, County Westmeath on October 16, 1939, the youngest of eight children. He lost both his parents at a young age – his father, a bicycle shop proprietor, died when Joe was eight; his mother when he was fifteen. He sang in school, and his mother had encouraged him to take up the piano.

He made his first stage appearance at a talent show held in a marquee on the Fair Green in his native Mullingar.

The Drifters

As well as securing his first (and last) “real” job as a compositor in local newspaper The Westmeath Examiner in 1958, Dolan also got his first guitar. After leaning some skills on the instrument he and his saxophone-playing brother Ben started to play in local bands. They soon formed a band of their own – The Drifters. Not long afterwards the band was renamed Joe Dolan and the Drifters and finally Joe Dolan and His Drifters to avoid legal action from the American band of the same name.

 

The Irish musical landscape in the 1960s was dominated by the showbands. The first single “The Answer to Everything”, (previously released as a B side by Del Shannon) was released in September 1964, quickly reaching number 4 in the Irish charts. Dolan and his band were managed by Seamus Casey. In the summer of 1968 however some of the band left with Dolan and Casey citing “musical differences” as the reason, although in the official biography by Ronan Casey (Sean Casey’s son) further elaboration includes references to unhappiness about financial issues.

After reforming the band Dolan recorded a song called “Make Me an Island” written by the songwriting duo Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, for Pye Records in conjunction with Shaftesbury Publishing. The track was a hit in England and led to Dolan’s first appearance on the BBC’s Top of the Pops and helped to make him the biggest Irish star in the world at that time, eventually becoming a number one hit in 14 countries although only reaching number 3 in the UK. In Ireland, the song peaked at number 2, as The Beatles song, Get Back kept it off the top spot. Dolan was the first Irish star to appear on Top of the Pops. After the recording of Make Me An Island he was approached and signed by the MAM Agency whose major star was Tom Jones.

You’re Such a Good Looking Woman

Follow-up singles “Teresa” and “You’re Such a Good Looking Woman” also made an impact. The “You’re Such a Good Looking Woman” single reached No. 4 in the Irish Charts and No. 17 in the UK, in 1970.

Other single releases such as “It Makes No Difference” and “You and the Looking Glass” were not big hits at home in Ireland or in the UK, but they were international successes. A collaboration with writers Roberto Danova and Peter Yellowstone in the mid 1970s produced more singles which made little impact on the British domestic market but did well internationally. In 1974’s “Sweet Little Rock ‘n’ Roller” was the first of a number of reasonable successes for this team but wasn’t a major hit in the UK until later recorded by Showaddywaddy, who had a Top 20 hit with the song in 1979. (Also covered by The Bay City Rollers).

Joe Dolan never married and dealt with speculation about his sexuality throughout his life. He dismissed persistent rumours that he was gay. The official biography suggests that he had a quiet offstage presence and preferred to keep romances out of the public eye but cites a long relationship with Isabella Fogarty whom he met in 1977, started dating in the 1980s and subsequently lived with. She was with him when he became ill on 25 December 2007.
