Lyrics

Now picture the scene
I'm at weather spoons with friends
Cheap drinks so the rounds come again and again
Suddenly the men lower their pints and go quiet
The orange brigade have arrived

Its an average night
where the outcomes the same
So I make for the bar just to shake up my day
I can't help but laugh
at this new friend I've made
She glowing, shes a fraud, shes a fake.

When did it start
This stupid obsession with how we look
And when did they start
Those insecure feelings
That makes us want to be someone else
And why should we care?

In my head I had this woman
all sussed out there and then
Her name, her job,
and the jobs of her friends
So I give her a bit of charm,
I give it all I've got
"Hello love, how you doing? do you come here a lot?"

Oh what a fool,
what a cock I have been
I just judged someone
by the colour of their skin
Her name was Claudette,
she had a law degree
She rubbed my bald head
before saying to me:

"When did this start?
This stupid obsession with how we all look
When did you start?
Those insecure feelings
that make you judge someone else
Why do you care?"

And I'll never get
Making all of that effort
Just to take away a look that is true

And isn't it sad
That I'll assume that you'll be
Like those dicks on tv that aren't you

And I'll be wasting my time
Saying you'll look better
When you can say the same to me

And I don't understand
The point of fake tan
But if I judge what a fool I would be.

When did it start
This stupid obsession with how we look
And when did they start
Those insecure feelings
That makes us want to be someone else
And why should we care?
