My hand at lyric bastardization

I scribbled these down while waiting to get into our new Mellow Mushroom (pizza place-YUM!)on Saturday night.
I re-worked "Beautiful Day". About Bono.
Here goes:

"Beautiful Babe"

My heart is a-bloom
Over this sensuous man I've found
And there's no room
For any other man around
They're out of luck
And the reasons that they have to give-
Just seem f*cked up
And so dull in comparison
But now I've found the one
To take me out of that place
Someone who can make
Me melt
With just a smirk & a glance

He's a BEAUTIFUL BABE
I fall, I realize
He's a BEAUTIFUL BABE
Can't let him get away

He's at my door
Singing," Ba-by, ELEVATION!"
But I want more-
So, I extend an invitation
I LOVE THIS MAN-
Ebony hair, eyes so blue
Makes me tremble alllll over
Oh, Lord, what he puts me through!

He's a BEAUTIFUL BABE
Can't let him get away
Such a BEAUTIFUL BABE

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
How to move like you, babyface

See his eyes, so sexy & blue
Singing "Chiiiiiild" right in front of you
See him deftly captivate the whole crowd
Dressed in leather an' a-dreamin' outloud and
See him lobby, doing all he can
Making a difference & giving a damn and
See him move- just watch his mouth
First time I saw him knew there was no doubt!

(Babe.........)
He was a BEAUTIFUL BABE!
Couldn't let him get away
BEAUTIFUL BABE!

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me, love, to move with it, babyface!

What I don't have
I need it now
What I don't have- I can feel him somehow
What I don't have
I need it now
I need him now

BEAUTIFUL BABE...
the end.
