Back when I was really young

with not a scar to show

my grandma sat me down to chat

she thought that I should know

that girls like me

we needed brains

to get ahead in life

an ugly girl without a brain

would never be a wife

I had some work to do in life

if i wanted to be a mum

cause i just wasn't pretty enough

to be dumb

 

I've always envied pretty girls

who don't seem to work as much

they have stuff given free to them

like jobs and love and such

but all us ugly ducklings

we learn to just get by

on brains and wit and sacrifice

and never question why

 

But with advancing age I've learned

that beauty's not  the key

its what inside that really counts

the stuff that you can't see

that of all the things we have to give

our looks will fade away

but I'm still smart with a lovely heart

and get smarter every day

so grandma dear

where ever you are

thanks for all you've done

but in the end I'd rather be plain

than just be plain dumb
