"Grace Kelly" as written by Michael Holbrook Penniman, Daniel L. Warner, Jodi Marr and John Holt Iii Merchant....
Do I attract you?
Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?
Am I too dirty?
Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I could be wholesome
I could be loathsome
I guess I'm a little bit shy
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me without making me try?

I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I've gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

How can I help it?
How can I help it?
How can I help what you think?
Hello, my baby
Hello, my baby
Putting my life on the brink
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like yourself?
Should I bend over?
Should I look older just to be put on your shelf?
I try to be like Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I've gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

Say what you want to satisfy yourself
But you only want what everybody else says you should want

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

    General CommentFrom what i have heard, Mika wrote this song because he was annoyed that different record labels wanted him to sound to be more like the stereotypical pop style. Ironically, a year later it was after hearing this song that he was signed onto a record label.

    Very catchy song :D

    General CommentI think this is Mika is showing how he is different like grace kelly was different and he wants people to realise he is no streotype.

    an awsome song!

    General CommentI think it's quite obvious that he's tried "a little Freddie" ;)

    My fave song by Mika... just the right touch of Queen influence without losing his own style.

    General CommentI think it's like a mixture of Queen and Scissor Sisters - definitely love it though! The Freddie reference definitely ups the Queen link.
