  • Put your make-up on
    Get your nails done
    Curl your hair
    Run the extra mile
    Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

    Get your sexy on
    Don't be shy, girl
    Take it off
    This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
    Do you like you?

    You don't have to try so hard
    You don't have to, give it all away
    You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
    You don't have to change a single thing

    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try
    You don't have to try

    Mm-mm, mm-mm, mm

    Get your shopping on, at the mall, max your credit cards
    You don't have to choose, buy it all, so they like you
    Do they like you?

    Wait a second
    Why, should you care, what they think of you?
    When you're all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
    Do you like you?

    You don't have to try so hard
    You don't have to, give it all away
    You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
    You don't have to change a single thing

    You don't have to try so hard
    You don't have to bend until you break
    You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
    You don't have to change a single thing

    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try

    No, you don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try
    You don't have to try

    Mm-mm, mm-mm, mm

    You don't have to try so hard
    You don't have to, give it all away
    You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
    You don't have to change a single thing

    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try, try, try, try
    You don't have to try
    You don't have to try

    Take your make-up off
    Let your hair down
    Take a breath
    Look into the mirror, at yourself
    Don't you like you?
    'Cause I like you Writer/s: Antonio Dixon, Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, Kenneth Edmonds

  • Gabrielle from Goodeve SkDon't try and be someone who you aren't because someone else says you need to change. We don't need to change who we are just to feel accepted. everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way. you don't need to change. just be who are you.
  • Debra Rutz Tanginan from PhilippinesDon't try so hard to be someone you're not because you're beautiful the way you are inside and out.
