Just be perfect... right?


Perfect hair and perfect skin

Perfect style and keeping thin

A judgemental world that we live in


Everyday's a fashion show

If there's a flaw they will know

Standards high don't fall below


Just one look is all it takes

Before you'r impression makes or breaks

Dubbed as freaks or dubbed as fakes


Perfect speech and perfect grammar

Perfect balance of etiquette and glamour

This is what, as a world, we enamor


Stand up straight and make yourself able

Never put both elbows on the dinner table

Don't sit too close to the television cable


Perfect smile and pearly whites

A goal on which we set our sights

If not then believe that reality bites


So just be perfect in every single way

Just be perfect every single day

A perfect balance, cafe au lait
