  • What up
    What up
    Listen

    What you starin' in the mirror for
    Tellin' yourself ya ugly
    What you wearing those high heels for
    When they're torturing your feet (you know they're killing you)
    Why you puttin' all that make-up on
    Hiding your pretty face (Uh uh)
    Blowin' all your money in that salon
    Tryin' to find ya place (no)

    In this world you fit in
    Or you're out and you're made
    To believe
    That this is what it's all about

    And don't you know
    Real beauty shines from within
    It's what you wearing under your skin
    Your perfect imperfections
    Led you in the wrong direction
    And made you think
    That you are incomplete
    But looks are only skin deep
    Oh oh yeah yeah

    Why you flippin through the magazine
    Trying to be those girls (well stop it)
    Gettin' all frustrated
    But it's not the end of the world (its superficial)
    So what if you can't get into a size three
    You're beautiful to me (beautiful to me)
    Stop trying to be Tyra's top model
    Girl go and find your own way to follow

    In this world you fit in
    Or you're out and you're made
    To believe
    That this is what it's all about

    And don't you know
    Real beauty shines from within
    It's what you wearing under your skin
    Your perfect imperfections
    Led you in the wrong direction
    And made you think
    That you are incomplete
    But looks are all your skin deep

    From the side walk
    To the boardwalk
    To the cat walk
    Don't talk
    About the way you walk
    But it's not your fault
    So if the girls talk,
    Watch you like a hawk
    They love to hate
    And they can't wait
    To get inside
    And make you cry
    Cry, cry, cry, cry
    Just let 'em know
    That you made ya own
    Now being you is not all wrong
    Do ya thang
    Let your light shine
    They'll come around
    In God's time

    And if they don't
    Just let it be
    When they stop being shallow
    Then they'll see
    Girl, I'm tellin' you (Come on!)

    Just be your self!

    In this world you fit in
    Or you're out and you're made
    To believe yeah
    That this is what it's all about

    And don't you know
    Real beauty shines from within
    It's what you wearing under your skin
    Your perfect imperfections
    Led you in the wrong direction
    And made you think
    That you are incomplete
    But looks are only skin deep
    Oh Ohh
    Yeah
