There was a girl named Annie
She had a very pretty face
And not the way you would think so
Let me see if I can try to explain it
She had a smile that could light up a room
And if she moved it'd be moving in you
But it wasn't like a magazine
She was just Plain Jane and her name was Annie

She never looked in the mirror
She never liked what she would see
And even if I tried to tell her
She never listened to a word I'd say
She always wanted what she never had
But never had what she needed so badly
Someone telling her she was fine and that's not right and it's why I'm saying

Annie don't be shy here
Annie don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round,
But it comes around
And Annie don't be shy here
Annie please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

I didn't know if I could tell her
I didn't know if I could make her see
She didn't need to find her beauty
She didn't need to find a way to show me
They took her moments of feeling alive
And made them moments of dying inside
She needed someone to scream her name
To take her pain and it's why I screaming

Annie don't be shy here
Annie don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round,
But it comes around
And Annie don't be shy here
Annie please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

And Annie
You are the one sight my eyes never tire of
It's like I cannot get enough of you
Annie you are the one song left in my symphony
Like you were made for me

Annie don't be shy here
Annie don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round,
But it comes around
And Annie don't be shy here
Annie please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

And Annie don't be shy here
Annie don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round,
But it comes around
And Annie don't be shy here
Annie please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself, have to stop myself, have to stop myself
'Cause you are beautiful
'Cause you are beautiful
'Cause you are beautiful

There was a girl named Annie
She had a very pretty face

    Alright. Here's what I think this song means. Annie is a girl who wants to make everyone happy. Except herself. She is so engrossed in making everyone else around her like her that she doesn't care that she hates herself. It gets to be too much for her to handle. And the guy tries to make her see that she's beautiful. She may not be like the people in a magazine. But Annie is Annie and that's what makes her beautiful.

    I love this song, i feel that a lot of people could relate to it, cause its true "looks don't make the world go round but it comes around" meaning to me that sometimes it's not about how the person looks at first sight because when you start to know them if inside they are amazing, it starts to show on the outside as well, even if only in your eyes. And that's what i think this song is about a girl who doesn't thing she's pretty enough and maybe to most she's just plain, but when the singer fell for her smile because he saw who she really was.

    i think this song reminds me of me and my friend shab, he loves me but i have a bf and he wants the best for me and my bf doesn't really like him because he "hits" on me but i don't think he means it and he never wants me to cry or be sad. he's never tried to do anything but make me happy but im the song when it says don't be shy and everything i remember when i first talked to shab and he said ur really quiet and i said yeah, i am really shy and he said back, u r i would of never knew because your talking to me like you've known me for like ever. =]

    I think the song is about a girl who, in her mind is always imperfect and nothing can be good enough for her such as her looks. And there is a guy who thinks she is perfect and wants her, so badly, to see what beauty he sees in her and also to see that he loves her with all of his heart, and could not go on without her
