  • Big girl, you are beautiful

    Walks in to the room
    Feels like a big balloon
    Big girl you are beautiful

    Diet Coke and a pizza please
    Diet Coke, I'm on my knees
    Screaming, "Big girl, you are beautiful"

    You take your skinny girl
    I feel like I'm gonna die
    'Cause a real woman
    Needs a real man, here's why

    You take your girl
    And multiply her by four
    Now a whole lot of woman
    Needs a whole lot more

    Get yourself to the butterfly lounge
    Find yourself a big lady
    Big boy, come on around
    And there we're gonna do baby

    No need to fantasize
    Since the words are my praises
    A watering hole with the girls around
    And curves in all the right places

    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful

    Walks in to the room
    Feels like a big balloon
    I said, "Hey girls, you are beautiful"

    Diet Coke and a pizza please
    Diet Coke, I'm on my knees
    Screaming, "Big girl, you are beautiful"

    You take your girl
    And multiply her by four
    Now a whole lot of woman
    Needs a whole lot more

    Get yourself to the butterfly lounge
    Find yourself a big lady
    Big boy, come on around
    And there we're gonna do baby

    No need to fantasize
    Since the words are my praises
    A watering hole with the girls around
    And curves in all the right places

    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful

    Get yourself to the butterfly lounge
    Find yourself a big lady
    Big boy, come on around
    And there we're gonna do baby

    No need to fantasize
    Since the words are my praises
    A watering hole with the girls around
    And curves in all the right places

    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Oh, you are beautiful

    Get yourself to the butterfly lounge
    Find yourself a big lady
    Big boy, come on around
    And there we're gonna do baby

    No need to fantasize
    Since the words are my praises
    A watering hole with the girls around
    And curves in all the right places

    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Big girls, you are beautiful
    Oh, you are beautiful

    Get yourself to the butterfly lounge
    Find yourself a big lady
    Big boy, come on around
    And there we're gonna do baby

    No need to fantasize
    Since the words are my praises
    A watering hole with the girls around
    And curves in all the right places

    Big girl, you are beautiful
    Big girl, you are beautiful
    Big girl, you are beautiful
    Big girl, you are beautiful
    Big girl, you are beautiful Writer/s: Michael Holbrook Penniman

  • Phillipa from Stillwater, OkRob-- Don't know how long ago you posted but I don't think he means "braces" as in suspenders, but as in the metal your dentist puts on your teeth to straighten them, and that people usually get when they are young. So he's saying he's liked big girls since he was a young teen, most likely :)
  • Rob from Fresno, CaCan anyone explain the lyric "No need to fantasize, since I was in my braces"? In the video he is wearing suspenders AKA braces, but the lyric still doesn't make sense.
  • Erika from Fox Valley, Winady---welcome to the big girls world. There's nothing wrong with being big either but the rest of the world (Mika aside) certainly makes us believe there is something wrong with it.
  • Ln from :), Qcexactly, being big doesnt make you ugly or pretty. if your pretty, your pretty, if your not, your not!
  • Nady from Adelaide, AustraliaThere is nothing wrong with skinny girls, I dont like how he says "give me a real woman", thin girls are women too. You dont have to be obese to be classed as a real woman.
  • Amy from Liverpool, United Kingdomgo catherine!! big girls rule, just more of us to luv! i used to be worried about my weight, even though im a perfectly healthy weight but since listening to this song i have thought 'screw diets!' and now i always feel happy with the way i look
  • Tracy from Bfe, NeI LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. I've been a big girl and a small girl and a medium girl, and this song is fun to rock out to at any size!
  • Catherine from Glasgow, EnglandI put on a lot of weight after i had my son, and my partner kept putting me down about it in frount of our friends and humiliating me. In the end i got fed up with it and one day when he was at work i packed up and left. When he came home he found this song on repeat and a note saying "a whole lot of woman needs a whole lot more" xx
  • Sydney from Cincinnati, Ohhehe. :) We are beautiful.
