  • [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
