Size two?
No thank you
Perfect shouldn’t be a word
It’s something that’s never seen, just heard
See that girl looking at the magazine
I shout “Don’t look”, but she doesn’t hear my scream
Skinny models; one; two; three; four
Doesn’t it seem like a bore?
That they’re the same crazy size
With toothpicks for thighs
And you want to know why?
Anorexia, my dear
Something you shouldn’t love, just fear
To girls who have this, they get compliments they don’t hear
Don’t eat, just run
That’s an anorexic’s idea of fun
The skinnier they get, the less they panic
Until one moment when they sink like the Titanic
Don’t think Anorexia’s your friend
It’s something that should come to an end
Repeat after me:
Beauty is something you feel, not see

Whoo Hoo Sista!!! Beauty is sum thing u feel, not see. The only beauty that should count is the one on the inside n not outside.  I rather eat fried chicken, pizza, ice cream, and chessesteak than be a size 2 or four. Beauty is sum thing u feel, not u see!!!!!!!!!!!!
