(Intro)
Yo remember you use to look at me and call me ugly?
Well you know I don't feel that way about myself
You feel me?

(Verse 1)
You say I'm ugly; but I'm not ugly
You use to look at me and call me ugly
You had me believing because of my dark skin
My big nose, and my big lips
Now I don't wanna hear it; I love me for me
And Jesus loves me just the way that I am
I am happy, rumors circulating about my sexuality
But I don't care

(Chorus)
You say I'm ugly; but I'm not ugly (4 times)

(Verse 2)
I don't want to join in with the crowd of guys
They talk about women like they are on a meat market
It's all right now; I'm not a follower
I do my own thing and when the right lady comes along
I will know yes, thank you Jesus for loving me and
Taking good care of my body
I don't wanna hear it, the negativity
Cause I live positive now so I want you to sing

(Chorus)
You say I'm ugly; but I'm not ugly (4 times)

(Verse 3)
I found you beautiful, you use to hurt me
Made me feel so bad inside, I felt so awful
But I know I'm not bad looking no matter what
You say I can look myself in the mirror
I know that I am not an ugly guy
So no matter what you say, I know I'm happy
Halleluiah, I live for holiness, pureness and worthiness
In the name of Jesus

(Chorus)
You say I'm ugly; but I'm not ugly (4 times)

(Verse 4)
You use to look at me and call me ugly
You had me believing because of my dark skin
My big nose, and my big lips
Now I don't wanna hear it because I
Love me for me, and Jesus loves me
Just the way that I am, I am happy
Rumors circulating about me
Just because I am trying to live right

(Chorus)
You say I'm ugly; but I'm not ugly (4 times)
