PRETTY ME

Five years old, in my pink tutu

I was spinning, spinning and no one

ever knew

that these bruises hold a dirty clue

I was spinning, spinning and no one

ever knew

 

Pretty, pretty me

I am the prettiest girl

you ever did see

 

Seventh grade, my boyfriend made

a joke about the way I looked

in the pool

So I never ate, man I looked great

but I was spinning, spinning and no one

ever knew

 

Pretty, pretty me

I am the prettiest girl

you ever did see

 

Twenty eight years old, in my wedding

dress I'm told

I am the prettiest girl he ever did see

But six months on and that dress is

gone

because the aisle was too long for me

 

Pretty, pretty me

I am the prettiest girl

you ever did see

 

Two bags, a ticket, a couch in LA

Nothing left to prove, finally

something to say

I am wise enough now,

smart enough now

I own my own mistakes

But I got no job, I got no car

no driver's license, no cash

No savings, no health care

no furniture, no place to live

No IRA, no retirement scheme

no winter coat, no Christmas tree

No family near me

No money for morning coffee

and no way to pay off my debts

But I am dreaming

 

Pretty, pretty me

I am the prettiest girl

you ever did see
