"Nobody's Perfect" as written by and Mirwais Ahmadzai . Madonna....
Cool I am
When I am with you
Cool I'm not
When I am lonely

I feel so sad
What I did wasn't right
I feel so bad
And I must say to you

Sorry, but

Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect
I'm doing my best

I feel so sad
But you know I'll be true
I feel so bad
And I must say to you

Sorry, but

Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect
I'm doing my best

Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
I was dishonest
I will do my best
Yeah

Cool I am
When I am with you
Cool I'm not
When I am lonely

Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect
I'm doing my best

Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
I was dishonest
I will do my best
Yeah

Mmm, mmm, yeah
Mmm, mmm, yeah
Perfect,
Perfect,
Perfect,
Perfect
Mmm, mmm, yeah
Mmm, mmm, yeah
Perfect,
Perfect,
Perfect,
Perfect
Mmm, mmm, yeah
Mmm, mmm

    MemoryNobody's Perfect-Sad Rock Ballad from Alt-Country Masterpiece Music is the song and ballad of Madonna's brilliant life. I don't even have to explain the writing-it's indeed beautiful, self-explanatory and heartfelt because that's just the kind of Torch Rabbit Madonna is and will always be!-one of the best performances during her tenure at Rabbit/Warner. Definitely should have been released as a single. In ballad Nobody's Perfect, I can definitely hear the tears, emotion and her sadness in her exquisite and beautiful Detroit Evita/W.E. voice! Wallis Simpson and Evita Peron were never perfect-neither is Madonna! However. Madonna is Better than Perfect! Our Lady is Immortal. Madonna is life, love and humanity in song! Brilliant Job, Lady Ciccone! Madonna Forever! Brilliance!

    General CommentYeah.... this is my FAVE Madonna song ever!!!!!! It sounds so great - and she's right, nobody's perfect (even not a superstar... ;) )... And we all should forgive others from time to time.

    General CommentThe lyrics are failrly self explanatory. It stretches a little into the deeper end of the song's spectrum in the lines: "I was dishonest, I will do my best"

    General CommentThis was playing in my classroom the other day, and my teacher turned to me and said, "Hey, this is your song!"
    I hate it, but I have to agree with her.

    General CommentA song Madonna must have written for her boyfriend or husband due to the lines "when I am with you." Also, from the "when I'm lonely" part it appears that's the only reason she's communicating with the object of the song. Pretty shotty, but then again it's Madonna. So where will Madonna be tonight (at a club?) when she has a choice to be anywhere? Let's wait and see...
