  • Don't feel like putting makeup on my cheeks
    Do what I wanna
    Love every single part of my body
    Top to the bottom
    I'm not a supermodel from a magazine
    I'm okay with not being perfect

    'Cause that's perfect to me
    'Cause that's perfect to me
    'Cause that's perfect to me

    No matter where I go, everybody stares at me
    Not into fancy clothes, I'm rockin' baggy jeans
    Gettin' too close for comfort
    But comfort is what I need
    So I eat my body weight in chocolate and ice cream, ha
    Maybe I bite my nails and don't think before I speak
    Don't fit in any crowd, don't ever get much sleep
    I wish my legs were bigger, bigger than New York city
    And I'll love who I want to love, 'cause this love is gender free

    Don't feel like putting make up on my cheeks
    Do what I wanna
    Love every single part of my body
    Top to the bottom
    I'm not a supermodel from a magazine
    I'm okay with not being perfect

    'Cause that's perfect to me
    (La, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
    'Cause that's perfect to me
    (La, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
    'Cause that's perfect to me

    Sometimes I wake up late and don't even brush my teeth
    Just wanna stuff my face with leftover mac and cheese
    You know I get depressed
    Are you impressed with my honesty?
    Still I'll wear what I wanna wear
    'Cause I'm cool with what's underneath, mmm

    I wanna kiss someone that I'll never see again
    I wanna go somewhere and go there with all my friends
    I wanna take my family to go and see Eminem
    'Cause my sister's been in love with him
    Since like we were ten

    Don't feel like putting make-up on my cheeks
    Do what I wanna
    Love every single part of my body
    Top to the bottom
    I'm not a supermodel from a magazine
    I'm okay with not being perfect

    'Cause that's perfect to me
    (La, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
    'Cause that's perfect to me
    (La, la, la-la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la-la)
    'Cause that's perfect to me

    If you don't wanna wear make up, don't wear make up
    If you don't wanna break up, then kiss and make up
    Remember if you wanna you can go home
    You can say that enough is enough, ah
    Alright, this is your time
    Time for your life to be yours

    Don't feel like putting make-up on my cheeks
    Do what I wanna
    Love every single part of my body
    Top to the bottom
    I'm not a supermodel from a magazine
    I'm okay with not being perfect
    'Cause that's perfect to me Writer/s: Anne-marie Nicholson, Jenn Decilvio, Levi Lennox
