Lyrics

Oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god they're gonna eat me up for breakfast
You think you look good in whatever they sugarcoat you in
If my body is a temple you can worship at my feet but it might kick you in the teeth some
So even when you're spitting blood you would save a thought for me

Cos I got so down I held the world to ransom
Lonely, bored and bad thank god I'm handsome (so handsome)

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I should be picking up the pieces
But it doesn't really matter as once you thought it would when you got nothing to lose
Everybody else I know would talk to me of misery as if it was contagious
So come to me and promise me you'll catch me if you can

Cos I got so down I held the world to ransom
Lonely, bored and bad thank god I'm handsome
I'm as awful as they come oh what a pity
So I thank the lord above that I am pretty (so pretty)

P-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p so pretty
I'm p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p so pretty

Well I got so down I held the world to ransom
Lonely, bored and bad thank god I'm handsome
Arresting, prepossessing and disarming
Oh what a stroke of luck that I am charming
With a hand layed out upon me by committee
I just thank the lord above that I am pretty (so pretty)

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
