"Ugly, Just Like Me" as written by and Tom Morgan....
Used to sit in the corner
See me in the corner of their eyes
Never smiled at me, when I looked at them
They just laughed when I walked on by

But I've finally found someone
To make me feel complete
And I really, really like her
'Cause she's ugly, just like me

I'm in love with a girl who doesn't wear make-up
'Cause all the make-up in the world
Couldn't cover up, she's never had to break up

All my friends ask me
What do you see?
I say I really, really like her
'Cause she's ugly
I really, really like her
'Cause she's ugly
I really, really like her
'Cause she's ugly
She's just like me

    General CommentOne of Smudge’s most fun tracks, rife with self-deprecating lyrics (“I really, really like her ‘cos she’s ugly just like me”) and couched in strummed guitars, all clocking in at barely over a minute.

    Tom Morgan: “That was one of the first songs I wrote ever. It was probably just as Smudge was starting. Don’t know why it wasn’t recorded earlier, I think we were conscious of the length of the songs and that we had to make the record longer – that’s why there was so many songs on [Manilow], and that was one of the songs that we worked on [to pad out the length].”
