Ugly

Album: Taller In More Ways (2005)
Charted: 3
  • When I was seven
    They said I was strange
    I noticed that my eyes and hair weren't the same
    I asked my parents if I was OK
    They said you're more beautiful
    And that's the way they show they wish
    They had your smile
    So my confidence was up for a while
    I got real comfortable with my own style
    I knew that they were only jealous 'cause

    People are all the same
    And we only get judged by what we do
    My personality reflects me
    And if I'm ugly then
    So are you
    So are you

    There was a time when I felt like I cared
    That I was shorter than everyone there
    People made me feel like life was unfair
    And I did things that made me ashamed
    'Cause I didn't know my body would change
    I grew taller than them in more ways
    But there will always be the one who will say
    Something bad to make them feel great

    People are all the same
    And we only get judged by what we do
    My personality reflects name
    And if I'm ugly then
    So are you
    So are you

    People are all the same
    And we only get judged by what we do
    My personality reflects me
    And if I'm ugly then
    So are you
    So are you

    Everybody talks bad about somebody
    And never realizes how it affects somebody
    And you bet it won't be forgotten
    Envy is the only thing it could be

    'Cause people are all the same
    (The same, the same)
    And we only get judged by what we do
    (What we do, yeah, yeah)
    My personality reflects me
    And if I'm ugly then
    (Yeah, you)
    So are you
    So are you

    People are all the same
    (Oh, oh, oh)
    And we only get judged by what we do
    (What we do, yeah)
    My personality reflects me
    And if I'm ugly then
    (Yeah, so are you)
    So are you
    So are you Writer/s: DALLAS AUSTIN, DALLAS L AUSTIN
