I'm Beautiful Lyrics

by Bette Midler

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 simply 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 tryin' 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", I said, "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 big, too green, too red, too small
I said, "You don't belong", I said, "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

Ain't this my sun? Ain't this my moon?
Ain't this my world to be who I choose?
Ain't this our sun? Ain't this our moon?
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
