  • In recent year there's been a lot of pop acts singing about being beautiful or someone or something being beautiful. Now, i know this ain't a new thing but it just feels as if these people dont really know what beauty is and by bandying it around so often it starts to lose all meaning and worth.
    you see "beauty" and "beautiful" are powerful words.
    It's more than just a physical thing.
    It's more than just a nice pair of t__s.
    Bring the beat in and let me tell them what I think beauty is....

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
    I was lucky enough to be near her so i told her.
    Funnily enough I missed the freckles on her shoulder,
    and that even on the hottest of nights her skin was colder.

    Now for me to get my defintion of beauty across to ya
    i must request your attention for the immediate future
    It won't take so long as to put you in a catatonic stupor
    As i present my case study example: Tommy Cooper.
    If you haven't heard of Tommy I'll do my best to explain.
    Tommy Cooper was in the entertainment game
    Every granddad in Britain can do a Tommy Cooper impression
    With a selection of gags, hand movements and facial expressions
    His uniform was a suit and a red fez hat
    He would combine jokes and magic tricks "just like that"
    He'd drift between the two with the most cack handed transition
    He was two part comedian and one part magician
    Mistakes and mess-ups were a bit part of his show
    Which were real and which were planned only he would know
    If he messed up ot a certain joke bombed
    He would start laughing at himself and soon the laughs would catch on
    See Tommy gave no regad to class or grace
    His only goal was to put a smile on every single face
    All his life Tommy lived to just make people laugh
    Whether onstage or at home he would just be acting daft

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
    I was lucky enough to be near her so i told her.
    Funnily enough I missed the freckles on her shoulder,
    and that even on the hottest of nights her skin was colder. [x2]

    Whether it appropriate or not become somehow unconnected
    Because making people laugh was his only objective
    But there's one thing in life that no man can avoid
    An this thing will leave the hears of loved ones empty and void.
    Death will ALWAYS cause hurt and pain
    it can take weeks before a smile is on your face again
    sure where reminiscing there can be great happiness
    But at the immediate time theres just searing pain and nothing less.
    On April 5th, 1984
    The London Pallaium was the scene of Tommy's show once more
    It was a full house and he had the crowd eating out of his hand once more
    Everything, as usual, seemed completely unplanned
    And in what seemed like a finale Tommy dropped to the floor
    Causing the room to erupt into laughter and rapturous applause
    the curtain closed, lights went up and there was no encore
    Everybody left there seats and headed for the door
    Unbeknownst to them they had witness Tommy Cooper's death
    He had given his all until he had nothing left
    Now please note that at th moment that this entertainer died
    Even with a room full of people not one tear was cried
    Much less, they rose to their feet as they lauged and clapped
    Now tell me one f___ing thing that's more beautiful than that...
    Cos' im sure i cant think of one.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
    I was lucky enough to be near her so i told her.
    Funnily enough I missed the freckles on her shoulder,
    and that even on the hottest of nights her skin was colder.
