What up
What up
Listen

[Verse 1:]
What you starin' in the mirror for
Tellin' yourself ya ugly
What you wearing those high heels for
When they're torturing your feet (you know they're killing you)
Why you puttin' all that make-up on
Hiding your pretty face (Uh uh)
Blowin' all your money in that salon
Tryin' to find ya place (no)

[Bridge:]
In this world you fit in
Or you're out and you're made
To believe
That this is what it's all about

[Chorus:]
And don't you know
Real beauty shines from within
It's what you wearing under your skin
Your perfect imperfections
Led you in the wrong direction
And made you think
That you are incomplete
But looks are only skin deep
oh oh yeah yeah

[Verse 2:]
Why you flippin through the magazine
Trying to be those girls (well stop it)
Gettin' all frustrated
But it's not the end of the world (its superficial)
So what if you can't get into a size three
You're beautiful to me (beautiful to me)
Stop trying to be Tyra's top model
Girl go and find your own way to follow

[Bridge:]
In this world you fit in
Or you're out and you're made
To believe
That this is what it's all about

[Chorus:]
And don't you know
Real beauty shines from within
It's what you wearing under your skin
Your perfect imperfections
Led you in the wrong direction
And made you think
That you are incomplete
But looks are all your skin deep

From the side walk
To the boardwalk
To the cat walk
Don't talk
About the way you walk
But it's not your fault
So if the girls talk,
Watch you like a hawk
They love to hate
And they can't wait
To get inside
And make you cry
Cry, cry, cry, cry
Just let 'em know
That you made ya own
Now being you is not all wrong
Do ya thang
Let your light shine
They'll come around
In God's time

And if they don't
Just let it be
When they stop being shallow
Then they'll see
Girl, I'm tellin' you (Come on!)

Just be your self!

[Bridge:]
In this world you fit in
Or you're out and you're made
To believe yeah
That this is what it's all about

[Chorus:]
And don't you know
Real beauty shines from within
It's what you wearing under your skin
Your perfect imperfections
Led you in the wrong direction
And made you think
That you are incomplete
But looks are only skin deep
Oh Ohh
Yeeah

    My meaning of skin deep is when your comfortable in your own skin. Your not afraid to be yourself. It something that comes from within and is very beautiful and everyone notices.
