TLC – Unpretty lyrics
I wish I could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you
Look into the mirror who's inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today (yeah)

My outsides are cool
My insides are blue

Every time I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have my self to blame
I'm just trippin


Chorus:
You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That mac can make
But if you can't look inside you
Find out who am I to

Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too

Never insecure until I met you
Now I'm bein stupid
I used to be so cute to me
Just a little bit skinny
Why do I look to all these things

To keep you happy
Maybe get rid of you
And then I'll get back to me (hey)

My outsides looks cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
Keep on trippin


You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That mac can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That mac can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty to(I'll make you feel unpretty too)

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh (oh)

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up

That mac can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty

You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
That mac can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I to
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I'll make you feel unpretty too

    There is a person that makes me feel like I am ugly, and I want them to feel the way that they made me feel. People always tell me that I'm beautiful but this person has made me feel ugly. I can change myself, have plastic surgery or something, but I don't need to because I am actually beautiful, both inside and outside, no matter what people say. We have to accept ourselves for who we are because we are all very beautiful both inside and out no matter what people say.

    For me the meaning of the song is she is contented to what she have until she have a guy that love her for what he wants for the girl not fot what she already have! To dat point she get insecure to herself! So don't get influence by others you have your own worth seek for it don't pretend to be like others you just lost your turn! We live only once live life to the fullest! ;-)

    I have been pretty my whole life, their was a time when someone made me feel like I wasn't but that person was insecure about the way they felt inside and tried to use it against me. Strangers stop me everyday to tell me how beautiful I am, yet in times of setbacks or being mistreated by others, often people say to me your a beautiful girl life wont be hard for you. Little do they know all the darkness I have seen.

    - don't be phased by small temptations, grow as you want to, progress as you want to, & live as you want to. Soak in the attention you receive as a prized possession. Don't allow anyone or anything to define you. Proceed in life knowing that your the base to your accomplishments & live life being you. Walk around proud & dignified. Head held high, shoulders abroad, & mind set on achieving! ♥ '

    TLC does it again by addressing the hardships we all face at one time or another. “Unpretty” is new to me, but I found it to be a beautiful song that announces to the world that another person cannot allow themselves to be dictated by many of the shallow things people appear to value. The truth of the song is that no one should make you feel “unpretty.” You have to look inside yourself and be content with the special gifts you’ve been given. Using those gifts to better others will make you prettier than any change to your physical self will ever accomplish. I find that someone’s persona and intelligence is what actually makes a girl pretty.
