The Lyrics

Need I say you're ugly
When I see your hair?
Need I say that some lotion
Is something you could wear?
I don't want to be sitting near
Others might just see you
'Cause they might think that, maybe
You're some kinda ho

You cannot wear black leather
'Cause it might rip apart
A nasty situation
When you just let a fart
Every time that I look at you
I can see future
You look just like Wayne Brady
(At) Ninety-one years old

Just looking like Macy Gray
Looking like Macy Gray
Are you neutered or are you spayed?
Oh wait... well, nevermind
I've walked the world around and round
But you're the ugliest I've found

[enter creepy "ooo" background vocals]
Looking like Macy Gray

Now when you came from the darkness
People screamed and ran
They all thought they'd get cancer
From just holding your hand
I stayed here, but I should have run
I guess I should rinse you
'Cause it seems that just maybe
You're from a UFO

When you're on safari
You scare chimpanzees
Hyenas stay behind you
They think that you've got disease
Late at night when you're hunting game
You made me run in fear
'Cause the sound of your voice calling
Scared the shi* from me

Just looking like Macy Gray
Sounding like Macy Gray
Plastic surgeons said, "Hell, no way!"
Aaaayyy Uuughh...
[more creepy "ooo" background vocals, with a "yuck!" sound]
Looking like Macy Gray [3x]

Something seemed a bit off, so I was going 545 but I accidentally clicked straight 5s. Hope you can live with that. ;-)

Thanks, Alvin and Red... :)

I always thought Macy sounded like Tina Turner on helium, so inhale some before singing this one, for maximum effect.

Thanks, Steve... I agree, although I actually thought Macy Gray was more of a female version of Louis Armstrong, when it comes to her weird voice.

This one is alright , even though I really don't like this song. But I guess yours was worthy enough.
