I’m far from the ugliest.
I’m not the smartest girl in the world, but
I’m far from the dumbest.
I’m not the wealthiest girl in the world, but
I’m far from the poorest.
I’m not the nicest person, but
I am far from the meanest.
I may not have the best ideas, but
a good one comes around every now and then.
I’m not the best cook in the world, but
I’m not the worst either.
I drive a little reckless, but
we still get to where we’re going.
I don’t have the best job,
but I go to work every day.
I don’t wear a whole lot of jewelry,
but I still shine if you catch me in the right light.
I might not have the softest skin,
but it’ll melt under your touch.
I might not be the best communicator,
but I have feelings.
I might have a drinking problem,
but I got it honest.
I may say the wrong thing
at the wrong time
a lot of the time
I may do the not right thing
at the not right time
some of the time, but
I mean well all of the time
And your best interest is always on my mind
ALL of the time.
I may not be the best singer, but
I have heard worse.
I may not be the best dancer,
but I can keep a beat.
I may have mood swings, but
I’m happy a lot too.
My hearing’s not that great, but
I hold on to your every word.
My sight is not all that, but
I go to sleep just to see your face in the morning.
I’m not what you’d call a prissy girl, but
I may not have a lot of friends, but
I help a lot of people.
I may not be the best writer, but
It’s how I stay sane.
Oh, that reminds me -
I might not be the sanest girl, but
I damn sure ain’t the craziest.
I don’t have the biggest breast,
or the smallest waist,
or the roundest ass,
or the longest legs,
who am I kidding??? they’re not even shaved…
and sometimes my breath smells,
and yes, I do pass gas.
I don’t have the prettiest feet,
or the whitest teeth,
or the clearest skin,
or long finger nails,
and I have childhood scars from climbing trees.
My knees are black,
Elbows sometimes ashy,
Lips chapped on a cold day,
I’ve never claimed to be perfect
although it eats me up inside every day that i’m not…
I mean -
I’m not the most perfect girl in the world, but
I mean -
but, i’m far from the least…
Maybe not that far,
I mean – hmmm.
I may have some issues, but
who am I kidding??? we all do.
And I show up with baggage, but
who doesn’t??? only a few.
So, there it is
In black and white,
The not I’m who, but
Though I may not have the biggest heart,
It found lots of room to love you.
