Music by elton johnLyrics by bernie taupinReleased as a b-side in 1992Fat boys cry when ugly girls singAbout the way the world would be if they were thinAnd ugly girls turn their heads when fat boys laughAbout the handsome kid next door who broke their heartWho broke their heartBroke their heartAnd fat boys lie when ugly girls askAbout the size an apple pie looks through a magnifying glassAnd ugly girls dream at night when fat boys sleepAbout the way the mirrors lie when beauty’s only skin deepBeauty’s only skin deepSkin deepBut it’s the fat boy’s world for an ugly girlAnd ugly girls love that fat boy joyWho needs the worries of a perfect worldHear the early birds make that spring time comeWhen a fat boy falls in love with an ugly girlWhen a fat boy falls in love with an ugly girlFat boys dance when ugly girls shoutThat a waltz is not the dance for the boy who’s stoutAnd ugly girls dream at night when fat boys sleepAbout the way the mirrors lie when beauty’s only skin deepBeauty’s only skin deepSkin deepFat boys and ugly girls
