TISM If You're Ugly, Forget It Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, can you see that girl's immaculate shoulder?
Do you wanna get your name on her folder?
Hope may spring eternal, but you should not let it
Hear the unspoken words: if you're ugly, forget it
Oh, can you see that guy? No wonder you hate him
He's captain of the footy, you of the debating
You have the rest of your life, with which to regret it
Obey the unstated rule: if you're ugly, forget it

[Verse 2]
The worst bands are most popular
Arseholes make the most money
Insecure twats are famous
Lunatics embrace religion
Incompetent people, incompetent people are the loudest
Woohoo!

[Verse 3]
Still one place left for the desperate try-hard
Become an artist and join the avant-garde
But even in the ghettos, you're likely to get it
That unbroken code: if you're ugly, forget it
And so to suicide you're eventually driven
You'll ask St.Peter, "Can I get to heaven?"
He'll point to your tombstone, the sentence, you've read it
Read the unwritten law: if you're ugly, forget it

[Verse 4]
Stands on principle are at least genuine
Government funding means people don't like it
Well read people don't known anything
The avant-garde are deeply conservative
Saving the world is a waste of resources
Throw out what's useful and recycle your garbage
Nothing happens to ambulance subscribers

[Outro]
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it (Hope may spring eternal, but you should not let it)
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it
(You have the rest of your life with which to regret it)
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it
(Even in the ghettos, you're likely to get it)
Round the world, round the world: if you're ugly, forget it
(Look at your tombstone, the sentence, you've read it)
If you're ugly, forget it
