The Chi-Lites – Homely Girl lyrics

It must have broke
Your poor little heart
When the boys used to say
You look better in the dark

Oh, but now they'd give
All they learned in school
To be somewhere
In the dark with you
Oh, yes, they would

You know the teacher
Would ask a question
And you would always
Raise your hand

Oh, but somehow
You never got your turn and
My eyes would fill with water
Inside, I burned
Oh, yes, I did

Homely girl
She was so homely
You're a beautiful woman
Oh, yeah (homely girl)

Homely girl
Used to be lonely
You're a beautiful woman
Oh, yeah

There was a boy
Who used to sit beside you
Who liked to hold that place
His whole life through

Oh, you were beautiful to me
You had a heart
No one could ever see
Oh, yes, you did

I was the only one who
Offered to carry your books
Took all the stares and laughter
With the dirty looks

But I saw then
What they see now
They all wanna ask you for a date
They don't know how
They don't know how

Homely girl
She was so homely
You're a beautiful woman
Oh, yeah (homely girl)

Homely girl
Used to be lonely
You're a beautiful woman
Oh, yeah (homely girl)

(Homely girl)
First, they want
A chance to hold you
(She was so homely)
Then they want a chance to
Try to control you, but oh, no
(You're a beautiful woman)

Now don't you know
I got to say it

Homely girl
Used to be lonely
You're a beautiful woman

    I was the homely girl in high school, and the boy that used to talk to me was a twin that was told by his (twin) brother to stop talking to me because it was embarrassing to have to explain to the football team guys why his brother was hanging out with me. Years later while at a mall I was approached by that same guy, who said he wanted to apologize to me for being so mean to me in high school, he also proceeded to tell me that his brother never got over me and was on his 3rd marriage. Then he invited me to a bbq at his home because now he was a pastor and was starting his very own congregation. I declined.
