There was a girl named Annie
She had a very pretty face
And not the way you would think so
Let me see if I can try to explain it

She had a smile, it could light up a room
And if she moved, it'd be movin' in you
But she wasn't like a magazine
She was just plain Jane and her name was Annie

She never looked in the mirror
She never liked what she would see
And even if I tried to tell her
She never listened to a word I'd say

She always wanted what she never had
But never had what she needed so badly
Someone tellin' her she was fine
And that's not right and it's why I'm sayin'

Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round
But it comes around

And Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

I didn't know if I could tell her
I didn't know if I could make her see
She didn't need to find her beauty
She didn't need to find a way to show me

They took her moments of feelin' alive
And made them moments of dyin' inside
She needed someone to scream her name
To take her pain and it's why I screamin'

Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round
But it comes around

And Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

And Annie, you are the one sight
My eyes never tire of
It's like I cannot get enough of you
Annie, you are the one song left in my symphony
Like you were made for me

Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round
But it comes around

And Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
'Cause you're beautiful

And Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, don't just lie there
Looks don't make the world go 'round
But it comes around

And Annie, don't be shy here
Annie, please don't cry here
I always have to stop myself
Have to stop myself, have to stop myself

'Cause you're beautiful
'Cause you're beautiful
'Cause you're beautiful

There was a girl named Annie
She had a very pretty face
