Lyrics Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

verse 1:
I'M LOOKING
AT THE PICTURE
YOU GAVE ME.
I SEE THE WORDS
I LOVE YOU
BY YOUR NAME.
BUT SOMEONE ELSE'S ARMS
ARE NOW AROUND YOU,
AND NOW I'M LEFT
WITH JUST
THIS PICTURE FRAME.

Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

verse 2:
IF I COULD BE GLASS
THAT HOLDS YOUR PICTURE,
THOSE LIPS I LOVE
WOULD THEN
BE CLOSE TO ME.
SOMETIMES I'M GLAD
THAT I CAN HOLD
YOUR PICTURE,
BUT SOMETIMES
IT'S JUST NOT ENOUGH
FOR ME.

Chorus:
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
I'M LOOKING
AT YOUR PICTURE
EIGHT BY TEN.
EIGHT BY TEN,
EIGHT BY TEN,
MY LONELY WORLD
IS EIGHT BY TEN.

Lyrics WHO IS THAT GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY?

ROLLING DOWN
THE HIGHWAY
IN MY JIMMY,
HAULING FREIGHT
FROM CHICAGO
TO ST. LOUIE
LAWD,
I SEE HER
EVERY DAY.

A DOUBLE CLUTCHING
WEASEL
LIKE ME
HARDLY GETS A GIRL
ANYWHERE
WHO'LL LOOK AT ME
THAT WAY,
LIKE THE GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY.

WOW!,
WHAT A GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY.
I BET
IT WOULDN'T TAKE HER
VERY LONG
TO GET GONE
IF SOMEONE
WOULD PULL
A DIRTY LITTLE TRICK
AND TAKE
HER TOWEL AWAY.

I SLOW MY JIMMY DOWN
TO TWENTY,
THAT'S HOW MANY WRECKS
I SEE THERE
EVERY DAY,
CAUSED BY
THE GIRL WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY.

I LOVE THE GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY.
I GUESS
I'M GETTING BOLDER
'CAUSE I'D RATHER
KISS
AND HOLD HER
THAN JUST KEEP
A-LOOKING AT HER
EVERY DAY.

AT FOUR FORTY FIVE
COFFEE DRINKING -
EATING TIME,
JIMMIE SHIMMIED
WHILE I WOKE UP
THE ARTIST
THAT PAINTED
THAT DISPLAY
OF THE GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL.
DOG-GONE THAT GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG
OLE HIGHWAY.

THE SLEEPY-HEADED PAINTER
SAID THE GIRL WASN'T REAL,
AND I'D BETTER
GET THE COO-COO
ON MY WAY.
ON ROUTE 66
FROM THE BILLBOARD
TO CHICAGO,
YOU WILL FIND
TINY PIECES
OF MY HEART
SCATTERED
EVERY WHICH-A-WAY,
SHATTERED
BY THE GIRL
WEARING NOTHING
BUT A SMILE
AND A TOWEL
IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG OLE
HIGHWAY.

IN THE PICTURE
ON THE BILLBOARD
IN THE FIELD
NEAR THE BIG OLE
HIGHWAY.
