Oh, I want to be pretty in a great big city
And oh I'd like to be so pretty in this great big city
And isn't it a pity if you're not the prettiest thing in the world
When you live in a great big city?

Lovely eyes, lovely nose
Adorable mouth and beautiful teeth
Oh, you've got the most fantastic shoulders
Delicious lips and adorable hips

Oh, oh, oh, you're so pretty
Pretty, pretty, pretty
Pretty, pretty, pretty

I'd like to look like you
But I am me and you are you
And if I looked in the mirror for a thousand years
I'd never transform myself to look like you

You walk down the street and you look pretty
You sit on the bus and you look pretty
You sit outside cafes and you look pretty
You're pretty, you're pretty, you're pretty, you're pretty

In fact, there's no place you go
No lights you see
That doesn't make you look even more pretty

Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven, I feel like I'm in heaven)
I'm in heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)

Somebody told me the other day
Even pretty girls
Well, they can have a hard time
'Cause they don't know why someone likes them

They say, is it my legs?
Is it my lips?
Is it my nose or is it my hips?
Or is it my my my my my personality?
My generous, loving, soaring free spirit?

You're pretty, you're pretty
You're pretty, you're pretty, you're pretty
You're pretty, you're pretty, you're pretty
You're pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty

Oh, you're pretty, you know who I mean
You're so pretty and you make me wanna scream

Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven, I feel like I'm in heaven)
I'm in heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven, I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven, I feel like I'm in heaven)
I'm in heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven, I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven
Heaven

You make wanna scream
You make me feel like i'm livin' inside a dream
You make me want you
And you know that it's true
'Cause I want you here in my mirror, baby
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Beauty is within
Sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun
I'm the loveliest one

I'm the loveliest one

When I look at you (I feel like I'm in heaven)
When I look at you (I feel like I'm in heaven)
When I look at you
I'm in heaven
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
(Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
(Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
(Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
(???)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
Heaven (I feel like I'm in heaven)
