I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright,
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me tonight.
I feel charming,
Oh, so charming -
It’s alarming how charming I feel,
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I’m real.
See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile.
Such s pretty me!
I feel stunning
Feel like running and dancing for joy.
For I’m loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
