    It's simply addressing the standards of beauty held by society now, where you have to be thin, tall, toned, with perfect eyes, nose, lips, shape of face, as well as have an hourglass figure and nothing less than this standard is accepted. This song is brilliant because it shows that the pressures face by girls in today's society to look perfect through the mass media and addresses how the concept of beauty should not be standard. We should all be accepted because we're all different. This is what makes 2ne1 so special. Their lyrics are not typical and address real issues, and this song is so suitable for girls all around because they themselves do not fit the cookie cutter definition of female kpop stars. It may sound negative, but look beyond the literal. We all have doubts about ourselves, days when we want to be perfect and beautiful literally, and accepted for our beautiful heart. You don't need plastic surgery to be beautiful. You just need to love yourself.

    I smile brightly, but i'm not satisfied
    I'm not pretty
    I'm not beautiful
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    I sing but no one listens
    I'm not pretty
    I'm not beautiful
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    [dara] why am i this ugly
    What must i do for me to be able to smile brightly like you?

    [minji] i’m getting angry again, why can’t i ever be perfect
    I simply put the blame on my ugly appearance in this broken mirror

    [bom] don’t look at me, i hate this feeling right now
    I want to hide away somewhere, i want to escape
    This world is full of lies

    [cl] i think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me
    Just like her i wanna be pretty i wanna be pretty
    Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me i’m pretty

    I think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me
    Just like her i wanna be pretty i wanna be pretty
    Don’t lie to my face cuz i know i’m ugly

    [minji] don’t tell me that you can understand me so easily
    My ugly and crooked heart may even come to resent you

    [bom] don’t force me to talk, i’m not right for you
    The cold thorns inside that patronizing gaze suffocate me

    [minji] don’t come closer, i don’t even want your concern
    I want to leave away to somewhere, i want to shout out
    This world is full of lies

    [cl] i think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me
    Just like her i wanna be pretty i wanna be pretty
    Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me i’m pretty

    I think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me
    Just like her i wanna be pretty i wanna be pretty
    Don’t lie to my face cuz i know i’m ugly

    [dara] all alone
    I’m all alone x 2

    There is no such thing as warmth
    There is no one by my side

    All alone
    I’m all alone x 2
    I’m always alone

    There’s no such thing as warmth
    Next to my side, there’s not even anyone to embrace me

    [cl] i think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me
    Just like her i wanna be pretty i wanna be prety
    Don’t lie to my face tellin’ me i’m pretty

    I think i’m ugly
    And nobody wants to love me just like her
    I wanna be pretty
    I wanna be pretty
    Don't lie to my face, cuz i know i'm ugly

    I think "ugly" is about the insecurities girls face in their everyday lives. No matter how gorgeous everyone else finds you, in that person's eyes, they will never be as pretty as the beautiful girls they see in the media, schoolmates, or even their own family and friends. However i nthe video, you might notice the signs that say "plasticville", "no ugly people allowed", and "you are beautiful. " theyre trying to get across that you dont need anything but yourself to be beautiful (despite bom's struggles eventhough in her defense she was pressured by the record label, antis, and the media! ) and this song is exactly why 2ne1 is beautiful to me!

    "ugly" sings the inner thoughts of a girl rejected by the superficial society filled with strangers that judge based on your looks.

    Of course, this song is not referring to friends that look past your physical appearance.

    But in this society, the pain comes when strangers show you how ugly you are relative to the people around you - even when you have a heart of gold.
