Ugly

gather round, friends
i've come to drop some knowledge on ye
only the ugliest people
are what they appear to be
i have sailed almost every sea
been far, baby, i've been wide
and i've learned that one simple thing can't be denied
everybody's ugly on the inside
everybody's ugly on the inside

some are frozen, some are fried
but everybody's ugly on the inside

you may be a model, you may kiss the bride
but everybody's ugly on the inside
everybody's ugly on the inside

hear ye hear ye, you can't fool me
underneath the covers we're all ugly as can be

there there, so soft & so fair
there there, there there
such shiny hair, so rich and so rare
the mirror may care, but i don't

there's no make o' make-up ya haven't tried
but everybody's ugly on the inside

what with blood and guts and pride
everybody's ugly on the inside

the first time i saw you, i cried and cried
cuz everybody's ugly on the inside
everybody's ugly on the inside

you can go, friends
i hope this talk we had helped you see
only the ugly among you
are who you appear to be
