A mink wears a mink coat the whole year around
Even when he is not going to town
A skunk has a stripped coat, it's pretty he thinks
Although we all know he stinks

An elephant has hide as hard as a rock
A zebra has stripes and the leopard has spots
Sometimes I'm sad when I look at my hide
But I'd rather feel pretty inside

I like to feel pretty inside, don't you?
I like being kind and I like being true
I like to like me when I close my eyes
I like to feel pretty inside, oh, I like to feel pretty inside

If a mink wore a fur coat the whole year around
If he had to wear it when he went to town
If a skunk had a red coat and smell like a rose
Do you think he'd turn up his nose?

If elephants have fur as likely as not
A leopard would have stripes and the zebra have spots
I guess it would be great to have a new hide
But I'd rather feel pretty inside

I like to feel pretty inside, don't you?
I like being kind and I like being true
I like to like me when I close my eyes
I like to feel pretty inside, oh, I like to feel pretty inside

I like to feel pretty inside, don't you?
I like being kind and I like being true
I like to like me
