Hey U.G.L.Y.’s Choose TChange Radio Show, launched May 7, 2008 and streaming worldwide on WRHC-FM, is all about the lyrcis…songs that inspire positive self-esteem and ending: bullying, racism, suicide, school shootings and hate, plus those to create a healthy planet, peace, equality and inspire never giving up. After each song, we discuss the message of the lyrics and how these songs can help listeners choose to change things about themselves that may be feeding that voice in their heads that says they are not “good enough”. If you’d like to be a guest-DJ, or suggest songs for our show, email the lyrics to: PreventBullyingNow@heyugly.org. We’ll give you an on-air shout out when we play it.

ALL KINDS OF KINDS by Miranda Lambert

Ilsa was an acrobat who went and fell in love with that
Horatio the human cannonball
A weddin’ ‘neath the big top tent with barkers clowns and elephants
Sideshow family oddities and all
The dog-faced boy howled out with joy
As the tattooed lady was crying
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds

Thomas was a congressman with closets full of skeletons
And dresses that he wore on Friday nights
Phyllis was a pharmacist, a dab of that, a pinch of this
Concocted to suppress her appetite
When the children were fiddlin’ she’d slip ’em some Ritalin
And wait for Thomasina to arrive
Cause ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds
All kinds of kinds

When I play this old guitar from children’s shows to smoky bars
I take a break and think about the past
When I stood up in geometry and everybody stared at me
And I tossed my test into the trash
I scratched off my number while hitching out under
That bush league population sign
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds

Now some point a finger and let ignorance linger
If they’d look in the mirror they’d find
That ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds
All kinds of kinds
All kinds of kinds


NO PLACE IN HEAVEN by Mika

Father, will you forgive me for my sins?
Father, if there’s a heaven, let me in
I don’t know where to go if I should die
We haven’t been on speaking terms for so long, you and I

I was a freak since 7-years old
Been cast away, I felt the cold
Coming over me.

For every love I had to hide
And every tear I ever cried
I’m down on my knees
I’m begging you, please
There’s no place in heaven for someone like me

Won’t you open the door
And try me once more?
‘Cause there’s no place in heaven for someone like me
‘Cause there’s no place in hea…

In between us an ocean can be found
How long will I swim before I drown?
And in between those words we dare not say
Do you think that you could learn to love me anyway?

I was a freak since 7-years old
Been cast away, I felt the cold
Coming over me.

For every love I had to hide
And every tear I ever cried
I’m down on my knees
I’m begging you, please
There’s no place in heaven for someone like me

Won’t you open the door
And try me once more?
‘Cause there’s no place in heaven for someone like me

Oh, I’m down on my knees
I’m begging you, please
There’s no place in heaven for someone like me
‘Cause there’s no place in heaven for someone like me
‘Cause there’s no place in hea…

Father, won’t you forgive me for my sins?
Father, if there’s a heaven, let me in
Father is there any way to see
if there’s room in heaven left for me?

I’m down on my knees
I’m begging you, please
There’s no place in heaven for someone like me

Won’t you open the door
And try me once more?
‘Cause there’s no place in heaven for someone like me

Oh, I’m down on my knees
I’m begging you, please
There’s no place in heaven for someone like me
There’s no place in heaven for me

SHE KEEPS ME WARM by Mary Lambert

She says I smell like safety and home
I named both of her eyes “Forever” and “Please don’t go”
I could be a morning sunrise all the time, all the time yeah
This could be good, this could be good

And I can’t change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, my love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm

What’s your middle name?
Do you hate your job?
Do you fall in love too easily?
What’s your favorite word?
Do you like kissing girls?
Can I call you baby?
Yeah, yeah

She says that people stare ‘cuz we look so good together
Yeah, yeah, yeah

And I can’t change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change, even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, my love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm [x2]

I’m not crying on Sundays, I’m not crying on Sundays [x2]
(Love is patient, love is kind [x4])
My love, my love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm, she keeps me warm

BORN THIS WAY by Lady Gaga

It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital “H-I-M” (M, M, M)
Just put your paws up
‘Cause you were born this way, baby

My mama told me when I was young
“We are all born superstars”
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir
“There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are”
She said, “‘Cause He made you perfect, babe”
“So hold your head up, girl, and you’ll go far
Listen to me when I say”

I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself, and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way (Born this way)

Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way (Born this way)
Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Right track, baby
I was born this way

Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Don’t be (Don’t be, don’t be)

Give yourself prudence and love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth
In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth
A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital H-I-M, hey, hey, hey
I love my life, I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah (Same DNA)

I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself, and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way (Born this way)

Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way (Born this way)
Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Right track, baby
I was born this way

(Way) Don’t be, don’t be
(Way) Church

Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you’re broke or evergreen
You’re black, white, beige, cholo descent
You’re Lebanese, you’re orient
Whether life’s disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
‘Cause baby, you were born this way

No matter gay, straight, or bi
Lesbian, transgendered life
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white, or beige
Chola or orient made
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born to be brave!

I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself, and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way, yeah

Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way (Born this way)
Ooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way

I was born this way, hey
I was born this way, hey
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way, hey
I was born this way, hey
I was born this way, hey
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way, hey
Same DNA, but born this way (Hey, hey, hey)
Same DNA, but born this way (Hey, hey, hey)


WHO SAYS by Selena Gomez

I wouldn’t wanna be anybody else
Hey

You made me insecure
Told me I wasn’t good enough
But who are you to judge
When you’re a diamond in the rough?
I’m sure you got some things
You’d like to change about yourself
But when it comes to me
I wouldn’t wanna be anybody else

Who says you’re not pretty?
Who says you’re not beautiful?

It’s such a funny thing
How nothing’s funny when it’s you
You tell ’em what you mean
But they keep whitin’ out the truth
It’s like the work of art
That never gets to see the light
Keep you beneath the stars
Won’t let you touch the sky

Who says?

Who says you’re not star potential?
Who says you’re not presidential?
Who says you can’t be in movies?
Listen to me, listen to me
Who says you don’t pass the test?

Who said, who said?
Would you tell me who said that?

“Wig in a Box” from Hedwig and The Angry Inch

On nights like this
when the world’s a bit amiss
and the lights go down
across the trailer park
I get down
I feel had
I feel on the verge of going mad
and then it’s time to punch the clock

I put on some make-up
and turn up the tape deck
and pull the wig down on my head
suddenly I’m Miss Midwest
Midnight Checkout Queen
until I head home
and put myself to bed

I look back on where I’m from
look at the woman I’ve become
and the strangest things
seem suddenly routine
I look up from my Vermouth on the rocks
a gift-wrapped wig still in the box
of towering velveteen.

I put on some make-up
and some LaVern Baker
and pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And turn back to myself

Some girls they have natural ease
they wear it any way they please
with their French flip curls
and perfumed magazines
Wear it up
Let it down
This is the best way that I’ve found
to be the best you’ve ever seen

I put on some make-up
and turn up the eight-track
I’m pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Farrah Fawcett
from TV
until I wake up
and turn back to myself

Shag, bi-level, bob
Dorothy Hammil do,
Sausage curls, chicken wings
It’s all because of you
With your blow dried, feather back,
Toni home wave, too
flip, fro, frizz, flop,
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you

I put on some make-up
turn up the eight-track
I’m pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m this punk rock star
of stage and screen
and I ain’t never
I’m never turning back
