"Ugly" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
I could have read
A poem called
Ozymandias
To her instead

I lived for the moment
It was a futile
Gesture anyway
I was here
And she was here

And being broad
Of mind and hips
We did the only
Thing possible

I guess I shouldn't have strangled her to death
But I had to go to work and she had laced my coffee with acid

Normally I wouldn't have minded
But I'm allergic to sulfuric acid
Besides she had acne
And if you've got acne well I apologize for disliking it intensely.
But it's understandable that ugly people have got complexes
I mean it seems to me that ugly people don't have a chance

It's only the children or the fucking wealthy who tend to be good looking

An ugly fart
Attracts a good looking
Chick, if he's got money

An ugly fart
Attracts a good looking
Chick if he's got money

An ugly fart
Attracts a good looking
Chick
If he's got money

It's different for Jews somehow
I'd like to see
A passionate
Film between
The two ugliest
People in the world.
When I say ugly
I don't mean rough looking
I mean hideous

Don't tell me that
Aesthetics are
Subjective, you
Just know the truth
When you see it
Whatever it is

Muscle
Power, muscle
Power, muscle
Power, muscle
Power

    General CommentOne of my favourite Stranglers songs...vaguely offensive and I'm fairly sure JJB would admit it is lyrically meaningless. Still it is a great song.
