Pretty Me (Jansen Laura)

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 Oh oh, pretty, pretty me I am the prettiest girl You ever did see Oh oh, 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 Oh oh, pretty, pretty me I am the prettiest girl You ever did see Oh oh, 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 Two bags, a ticket, a couch in L.A. 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 Oh oh, pretty, pretty me I am the prettiest girl You ever did see Oh oh, pretty, pretty me I am the prettiest girl You ever did see You ever did see
