Lyrics

Dani with background vocals from Cimorelli:
You're insecure, don't know what for
You're turning heads when you walk through the door
Don't need make-up to cover up
Being the way that you are is enough

Lauren with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

Amy with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
You don't know (oh, oh)
You don't know you're beautiful

If only you saw what I can see
You'll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful (oh oh)
That's what makes you beautiful

Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
So c-come on,
You got it wrong
To prove I'm right, I put it in a song
I don't know why you're being shy
And turn away when I look into your eye eye eyes

Lauren with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful

If only you saw what I can see
You'll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful (oh oh)
That's what makes you beautiful

Cimorelli:
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

Christina with background vocals from Cimorelli:
Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful

Cimorelli:
Baby, you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed
But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful

If only you saw what I can see
You'll understand why I want you so desperately
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful (oh oh)
You don't know you're beautiful (oh oh)
That's what makes you beautiful
