Beauty is only skin deep

My thighs may slap together My bum, it may be huge But if you look a little deeper You'll find my heart is true My stomach may be rounded My bingo wings? Disaster But my friends will always stick around While yours will leave much faster Everything may wobble On my walk across to work But the smiles I get are genuine While yours are just a smirk I may have got a second chin And be all over flabby But you get your joy from others pain While my friends make me happy So while your comments hurt me And make me sad and worry I can't wallow in self pity As it's for you that I feel sorry
