It’s not her fault she’s beautiful

Don\'t scold her, she won\'t know what for,

Don\'t drive her hard, she\'s done no wrong,

Don\'t look for fault where there is none,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.


Don\'t down her when she gets dressed up,

Don\'t criticize her pretty looks,

Don\'t pick on everything she does,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.


Don\'t wait to see what she\'s got on,

Don\'t even say what\'s on your tongue,

Don\'t spoil her day, don\'t cloud her sun,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.


Don\'t steal her smile with cheap remarks,

Don\'t lock her out, don\'t break her heart,

Don\'t trash her world, don\'t waste her love,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.


Don\'t crush her pride with hurtful schemes,

Don\'t damn the things she does to please,

Don’t sneer when better men would swoon,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.


Don’t grind her dreams to dirt road dust,

Don’t stint on praise, make her feel good,

Don’t fail to compliment her looks,

It’s not her fault she’s beautiful.
