Homely Girl (2009 - Remaster)

UB40

It must have broke your poor little heart
When the boys used to say
"You looked better in the dark"
But now they'd give all they learnt in school
To be somewhere in the dark with you
(Oh ooh)

The teacher would ask the questions
And you, would always raise your hand
But somehow you never got your turn
And my eyes would fill with water, inside I'd burn
Oh yes I did

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl

There was a boy who used to sit beside you
Who'd like to hold that place his whole life through
Ooh you were beautiful to me
You had a heart no one could ever see, oh yes you did

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl

I was the only one who offered
To carry your books
Took all the stares and laughter
The dirty looks
'Cause I saw then what they see now
They all want to ask you for a date
They don't know how, they don't know how

Homely girl, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl
Homely girl you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl

Aha, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl
Aha, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman, oh homely girl
Aha, you used to be so lonely
You're a beautiful woman
