Absolutely Perfect Wonderful You

by Bob Gibson | Flying Whales & Peacock Tales

Absolutely Perfect Wonderful You

We all want to be likable
And lovable and huggable
But sometimes what we do with that
Can get us into trouble
We try to please just everyone
And find that that’s not workable
So we feel rejected
All alone and very hurt

Chorus:
Don’t work too hard
At being loved
Just ask for squeezes when you need them
And you sometimes do!
You’re perfect now
The way you are
So don’t try to be someone else
You’re absolutely perfect wonderful you

Just be the way you really feel
And not the way you think you should
It’s better if we don’t pretend
That really doesn’t work so good

Sometimes we see boys and girls
Who wind up feeling very bad
They don’t know that it’s alright
To tell someone they’re feeling bad

Chorus:
Don’t work too hard
At being loved
Just ask for squeezes when you need them
And you sometimes do!
You’re perfect now
The way you are
So don’t try to be someone else
You’re absolutely perfect wonderful you

Everyone can love a clown
And all the ways a clown can be
(But) we don’t know who really lives
Behind the paint and mystery

So if you’re trying to please the world
And think you have to be a star
Just take off your mask and you’ll find
We love you just the way you are

Chorus:
Don’t work too hard
At being loved
Just ask for squeezes when you need them
And you sometimes do!
You’re perfect now
The way you are
So don’t try to be someone else
You’re absolutely perfect wonderful you
