Lyrics

BEAUTIFUL (Mike & Barbara Borok)

No one has contacted us yet to use this in a commercial for hair color products, but we haven't given up hope. This is for all you caterpillars our there - someday butterflies! Or, at least, moths.

I was mousy - I was shy
I was invisible to guys
No one asked me to dance
No one gave me a second glance
I was just a lost and lonely soul
How could life be so unfair?

I was awkward - I was plain
I faced a lifetime of pain
Had no good points - not one
Life was over - so young
The mirror kept me company
But it was not my friend

But the day I dyed my hair
That's when everything changed
The day I dyed my hair
I was beautiful

I was born again overnight
I was popular - all right!
I was confident - no fears
And respected by my peers
They used to be so mean to me
But that’s all history

‘Cause the day I dyed my hair
That's when everything changed
The day I dyed my hair
I was beautiful

It's like a fairy-tale come true
Now I have hair that I can live up to

Like a flower, I bloomed
I came out of my cocoon
Now I don’t have to hide
What was always inside
‘Cause all my new friends
Used to be insecure and awkward just like me

But the day we dyed our hair
That's when everything changed
The day we dyed our hair
We were beautiful
We were beautiful
We were beautiful
