"Homely Girl" is the first single of Rivers Cuomo's and Scott Murphy's project Scott & Rivers.

Appearances

Overview

"Homely Girl" was co-written by Rivers Cuomo and Japanese songwriter Shusui in November 2009. Cuomo released the original, mostly lyricsless demo on the music collaboration website Indaba Music, offering $208 to the person who would produce a better demo. The winner was American musician Barak Shpiez (under the moniker "Beware Fashionable Women"). On December 23, 2009 Cuomo posted "We've decided to roll with the version by "Beware Fashionable Women". Next I'll write the lyrics and we'll record the song for real. Look for the finished product on my debut Japanese language solo album next year." The planned solo album, which would have been titled ザ クマモトキッド (The Kumamoto Kid), never materialized, instead morphing into the Scott & Rivers project after teaming up with musician Scott Murphy.

Lyrics

Kami sama kara moratta
Kono karada to kokora ha
Minna sorezore chigau
Kanojo mo kimi mo chigau

Hana go takai hikui to
Kame ga hitoe futae
Kawaii kawaikunai demo
Boku ha kimi ga suki
Wow, oh

I love, love, love my homely girl
She just knocks me to the ground
Kimi no egao ha
Taiyou no you de
I love, love, love my homely girl
She just turns me inside out
Perfect 10 jya nakute mo
Kimi rashiku ite hoshii

Akogarete ita Rock Star
Kare ha subete te ni hairu
Gorgeous na ie mo kuruma mo
Kirei na kanojo sae mo

Demo itsuka kiduku hazu sou
Ichiban taisetsu na, hey
Heibon demo shiawase na hibi
Kami shimeru you ni
wow, oh

I love, love, love my homely girl
She just knocks me to the ground
Boku no kokoro ni
Hibiku melody
I love, love, love my homely girl
She just turns me inside out
Perfect 10 no kimi nado
Hoshikunai kara

Kagami o mite
Dare datte
Kanpeki jya nai
Dakara isshoni

I love, love, love my homely girl
She just knocks me to the ground
Kimi no egao ha
Taiyou no you de
I love, love, love my homely girl
She just turns me inside out
Perfect 10 jya nakute mo
Kimi rashiku ite hoshii

I love, love, love my homely girl
She just turns me inside out
Perfect 10 jya nakute mo
Kimi rashiku ite hoshii

English Lyrics

Our bodies & minds God gave us
Are all different She and you are different too
Good looking nose Funny looking nose
Double eyelid Single eyelid
Pretty Unpretty... But I love YOU

Oh, I Love, Love, Love my Homely Girl
She just knocks me to the ground
Your smile is like the sun
I Love, Love, Love my Homely Girl
She just turns me inside out
Even if you're not a Perfect 10, I want you to be just the way you are

The rock star you longed for He can get everything
A gorgeous car Even a beautiful lady
But someday he must realize That's right, the most important thing
May be ordinary but happy days

Oh, I Love, Love, Love my Homely Girl
She just knocks me to the ground
You are like a melody sounding in my heart
I Love, Love, Love my Homely Girl
She just turns me inside out
I don't even want you to be a Perfect 10

Look into the mirror
Nobody is perfect
So, let's be together
