You are beautiful
Well, except for those thighs
And the size of your waist
And the color of your eyes
And the length of your hair
And the zits on your face
And the fact you’re a lady
Who possesses no grace
And your cup size is small
And you’re unlike all the rest
And you’re much too tall
Okay-looking at best
And you’re a little bit fat
And your cheekbones are bad
And you should be happy
But you look much too sad
And we just don’t know why
Because you just heard us say
You are beautiful
But not the right way.
