LyricsEdit

(radio changing stations)
"You don't know how hard it is, bein' a woman.
How will I ever live up to your expectations of pretty?"

Dirty pretty
Mirror mirror on the wall
Dirty pretty
Who's the fairest of them all?
Dirty pretty
Tell me I'm the perfect queen
Dirty pretty, dirty dirty pretty
Dirty pretty
Mirror mirror in my hand
Dirty pretty
Who's the fairest in the land?
Dirty pretty
Are they lining up for me?
Dirty pretty, dirty dirty pretty
Turn it on, tune it in, let it out
Turn it on, tune it in
Maybe I am not all that I've learned
Close your eyes, you twist and you turn
I know I am more than they see
I'm everything, everything is me
I won't be what you want me to be
Your picture perfect vanity
I don't want to be your dirty pretty

Mirror mirror unleash your tongue
Am I too old, am I too young?
Am I worthy of thy love?

Mirror mirror, you're so vain
Would you sell yourself for fame?
Are you the vulture, or are you the dove?

Turn it on, tune it in, let it out
Turn it on, tune it in
Maybe I am not all that I've learned
Close your eyes, you twist and you turn
I know I am more than they see
I'm everything, everything is me
I won't be what you want me to be
Your picture perfect vanity
I don't want to be your dirty pretty

I won't close my eyes, like you want me to
I am wild and free, I am untamable
I'm more than you'll ever see
More than just your dirty pretty

Maybe I am not all that I've learned
Close your eyes, you twist and you turn
I know I am more than they see
I'm everything, everything is me
I won't be what you want me to be
Your picture perfect vanity
I don't want to be your dirty pretty
