THAT'S NOT ME
BUT
THAT'S ALRIGHT

Well we see 'um everyday runnin'
across the TV screen
Plastered on the billboard
and the fronts of magazine
Flawless faces, perfect bodies
not a blemish to be seen
Well, this too can be you
call 1-800-SURGERY

My body's not the same
as it was before three kids
Some things don't seem to work
the way they always did
Some parts got bigger
other vanished clean away
Well, I'm no super model
But I'm just fine this way

That's not me
but that's all right
When I look into the mirror
I see someone that I like
I just do the best
with what I've got
I won't waste my life tryin'
to be someone that I'm not
I have finally see the light
That's not me
But that's all right

It's hard to climb the monkey bars
in pantyhose and a skirt
And spike heels get stuck
chasin' Chandler through the dirt
'Dry Clean Only' is a no-no
nursing mothers will agree
Gucci doesn't cut it
when Junior starts to sneeze

Just remember when God made you
He broke the mold in two
There never was and never will be
another just like you
Honey, what's on the outside
it's gonna fade away
But the beauty that's inside your heart
time can't take away.

So next time you're discouraged
by that picture perfect crowd
Just look 'em in the eye
and sing it right out loud

That's not me
but that's all right
When I look into the mirror
I see someone that I like
I just do the best
with what I've got
I won't waste my life tryin'
to be someone that I'm not
I have finally see the light
That's not me
But that's all right

I'm under no delusions
I have finally seen the light
That's not me
But that's all right
