How Can That Be Beautiful?

  Believe me I would rather say nothing than lie
  But have you heard about that so-called beautiful guy
  I was begging for some money at the usual time
  The only thing he gave me was a lousy dime

  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't you see that I'm beautiful
  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't you see how beautiful I am

  I never paid him much attention before
  I think I know why I never noticed him more
  He doesn't pay enough attention to me
  He's a nice enough guy but he's not what I am

  You believe me, I believe every word you say
  So tell me what you did to be beautiful today
  It's not that I think you're not a beautiful lot
  I wouldn't want to hang around with someone who's not

  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't I see that you're beautiful
  How can you call that beautiful
  Why can't I see how beautiful you are too

  You're a nice enough guy
  But you're not what you'd have me believe
  I guess we're not as beautiful as we thought
  But it really doesn't matter
     as long as we're all just as ugly

  I guess I really have made a lot of mistakes
  And maybe I haven't got what it takes
  The stuff that I need to be a beautiful me
  I'm a nice enough guy
     but I'm not what I'd have you believe
