Look in the mirror, how lovely you are
You take the time in perfecting your nature
Seeing not even a scratch or a scar
Your bright eyes show signs that you’re now mature
The way you wash your face and brush your teeth
You comb your hair and make sure you’re well-kept
The type of clothes, the shoes on feet beneath
The mascara, the brush that’s smoothly swept
The scarf you wear, that is placed on your back
From the way you smile to the way you move
No way, no how your style is out of tact!
Oh man, you put me in a “selfie” mood!
I am not trying to sound conceited
My flawlessness cannot be defeated!
