Bette Midler
I'm Beautiful

That`s it, baby! When you got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!"

"This is the Divine Miss M and I`m here to share with you some rare and stimulating insight into my cosmic fabulosity. It`s really very simple. I smiply believe with all my heart:"

I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!
I`m beautiful, so beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!

"Go away, little girl," they used to say.
"Hey, you`re too fat, baby, you can`t play."
"Hold on, miss thing, what you trying to do?
You know you`re too wack to be in our school."

Too wack, too smart, too fast, too fine,
too loud, too tough, too too divine.
I said you don`t belong. You don`t belong.
Too loud, too big, too much to bear,
too bold, too brash, too prone to swear.
I heard that song for much too long.

Ain`t this my sun? Ain`t this my moon?
Ain`t this my world to be who I choose?
Ain`t this my song? Ain`t this my movie?
Ain`t this my world? I know I can do it.

I`m not too short, I`m not too tall,
I`m not too big, I`m not too small.
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
I`m not too white, I`m not too black,
I`m not too this, I`m not too that.
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!

I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, dammit!

It`s time to call it what it is. Don`t play the naming game.
Become what you were born to be and be it unashamed.
"Go away, little boy," I can hear them say,
"Everybody on the block says they think you`re gay.
Hold on, my friend, do you think we`re blind?
Take a look at yourself. You`re not our kind."

Too black, too white, too short, too tall,
too blue, too green, too red, too small.
I said you don`t belong. You don`t belong.
Too black, too white, too short, too tall,
too blue, too green, too red, too small.
I heard that song for much to long.

Ain`t this my sun? Ain`t this my moon?
Ain`t this my world to be who I choose?
Ain`t this my song? Ain`t this my movie?
Ain`t this my world? I know I can do it.

People always ask me,
"Miss M, how did you get so far
on so little?" Shut up!
Well, I woke up one morning,
flossed my teeth and decided,
"Damn, I`m fierce!" You look good!
You can be just like me! A goddess? Yeah!
Don`t just pussy foot around and sit on your assets.
Unleash your ferocity upon an unsuspecting world.
Rise up and repeat after me: "I`m beautiful!"

I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful!
Can you say that?
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful!
I don`t hear you!
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful!
Louder!
I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful, I`m beautiful!
Hey!

That`s it, baby, when you got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!

Aaaaaah!
Ain`t this my sun? My sun! Ain`t this my moon? My moon!
Ain`t this my world to be who I choose?
Ain`t this our song? Ain`t this our song?
Ain`t this our movie? Ain`t this our movie?
Ain`t this our world to be who we choose?

I`m not too short, I`m not too tall,
I`m not too big, I`m not too small.
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
I`m not too white, I`m not too black,
I`m not too this, I`m not too that.
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
Ooh, don`t lemme start lovin` myself!
I`m beautiful, dammit!
