It must have broke your poor little heart
When the boys used to say,
You looked better in the dark.
But now they`d give all they learnt in school
To be somewhere in the dark with you

The teacher would ask the questions
And you, would always raise your hand
But somehow you never got your turn
And my eyes would fill with water, inside i`d burn

(chorus)

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You`re a beautiful woman oh yes you are
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You`re a beautiful woman oh yeah

There was a boy who used to sit beside you
Who`d like to hold that place his whole life through
Oooh you were beautiful to me
You had a heart no one could ever see, oh yes you did

(chorus)

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You`re a beautiful woman oh homely girl

I was the only one who offered
To carry your books
Took all the stares and laughter
And the dirty looks
Cause I saw then what they see now
They all want to ask you for a date
They don`t know how, they don`t know how

(chorus)

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You`re a beautiful woman oh yeah
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You`re a beautiful woman, ooh yea, ooh hoo
You`re a beautiful woman
