Default Uglier than you think you are.

Build up hype just by your own word of mouth/
I know your type and don't think that I'm about/
to fuel your arrogance/
I know better than that/
You're not worth my time/
Don't take me for a twat/

You tell your tales and make your friends envy you/
but we all know that all of them tales they ain't true/
We know you just made em up/
To look big in front of your mates/
you should keep your mouth shut/
you ain't even worth the debate/

You talk the talk but you ain't got the face/
nor have you got the hips the thighs or the waist/
I can see through the make up/
like a ****ing x-ray machine/
and with legs like that/
I don't really want to see in between/

so **** off!




Sorry for the ending but I thought that would be great. So, any thoughts?

And I thought you were just a dirty hippie from the states. The use of "twat" makes you sound british while this part makes you sound like a jealous/angry girl:

Overall a little sloppy and juvenile and doesn't really say much. I'm afraid that I must utterly "nay" this one.

I am British anyway I don't see how that part of the song made me seem like a jealous/angry girl. I know this isn't one of my best songs but I think that if you are British you will 'get' this a lot more.

Let's break this one down, shall we....

Verse 1: She talks herself up and you resent her for it. She may have tried to play you, but you're too smart for her.

Verse 2: really says more of the same thing, just in a different way. (This part confuzzled me: "You tell your tales and make your friends even you/" How do your friends "even" you?)

Verse 3: You start making notes on her appearance now, with the exception of the last line about seeing "in between" feels like a hostile-female talking to me but I'm sure that's just me.

Overall it feels bitter and personal...

It was actually supposed to be 'envy you' I just got muddled up. I wouldn't say it's a bitter song, just a commentary on everyday life. Britain have 'plastics' like America but the difference is, our Plastics are UGLY.
