Lyrics:
How could she look so fine
       How could it be she might be mine
       How could she be so cool
       I've been taken for a fool so many times
       It's a story of a man
       Who works as hard as he can
       Just to be a man who stands on his own
       But the book always burns
       As the story takes it turn
       An leaves a broken manHow could she be so cool
       How could she be so fine
       I owe a favor to a friend
       My friends they always come through for me
       Yeah
       It's a story of a man
       Who works as hard as he can
       Just to be a man who stands on his own
       But the book always burns
       As the story takes it turn
       An leaves a broken man
       If you could only live my life
       You could see the difference you make to me
       To me
       I'd look right up at night
       And all I'd see was darkness
       Now I see the stars alright
       I wanna reach right up and grab one for you
       When the lights went down in your house
       Yeah that made me happy
       The sweat I make for you
       Yeah...I think you know where that comes from
     
Well I'd look right up at night
       And all I'd see was darkness
       Now I see the stars alrightI wanna reach right up and grab one for you
       When the lights went down in your house
       Yeah that made me happy
       The sweat I make for you
       I think you know where that comes from

How could she look so good (So good)
       How could she be so fine
       How could she be so cool
       How could it be she might be mine

Talking about dedicating the song to Johnny Thunders: Well, when we had the song down, we realized that it sounded a lot like a song that Johnny Thunders would have done. And, you know, he was in the New York Dolls and then had his own band, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers. And he’s one of Duff’s biggest influences, you know, in getting involved in rock ‘n’ roll to begin with. Everybody in the band are big New York Dolls fans and Johnny Thunders’ death wasn’t something anybody was very thrilled with. I mean, I actually had problems with the guy, but I really liked his music. And when we realized that the song sounded a lot like something he would have done, we just thought that was the best thing to do, you know. And so the people would ask the question like you are [Rockline, November 27, 1991].
Duff brought in 'So Fine,' complete with music and lyrics [Bozza, Anthony, & Slash (2007). Slash. Harper Entertainment: New York. p. 299].

'So Fine' performed January 15, 1993 at Tokyo Dome, Japan:
