I used to be good at all I did I thought so, who am I tryin' to kid I used to think I could do anything Not really, I just wanted to dream Everyone else is better than me Go on and look, it's easy to see I wanna be as good as I am in my head But I close the door, and just sit on my bed And I call myself Ugly, Rosie Lonely, Rose Unlovely, Rosie Slowly, Rose At hide and seek I'm always it I never win so I always quit When picking teams for basketball I'm always the one who gets left on the wall I'm never first, and I'm never fast When choosin sides they always choose me last So I walk down the hall and just stare at the floor I slip in the back and I sit by the door And I call myself Ugly, Rosie Lonely, Rose Unlovely, Rosie Slowly, Rose But inside I feel the way you do Inside What hurts you hurts me too I don't need to be as bright as a shining star I don't need to be as good as I know you are If ya got some kindness won't you send it my way It takes all I can get to just get through the day Don't laugh at me, I won't laugh at you If I'm safe from that, then you're safe too Then I can be as good as I know how to be If you let me in, then I think you'll see That I'll never be Ugly I'll just be Rosie I won't be lonely I'll just be Rose You won't always love me Just don't hate me I may bloom lately But at least I'll grow At least I will grow I'll grow I'll grow Out of ugly, Rose
