"Sexy Ugly" is a song written by Lady Gaga and Rob Fusari (Team Love Child) in 2007.

BackgroundEdit

During an interview with Billboard, Fusari recalls the meeting with Gaga, Vincent Herbert, and himself that they had with Jimmy Iovine, the CEO of Interscope Records:

Anyway, Jimmy Iovin listens to a little bit of “Dirty, Rich” and to another record Stef [Gaga] and I did called “Sexy Ugly”. He stands up, looks at Vincent Herbert and says, “Let’s give it a try.” And that was it. She got a deal.

—Rob Fusari

It was also mentioned in the June 2009 issue of Rolling Stone with Gaga as "Ugly Sexy". The concept behind the song might be related to the following quote from the article .

I think I look new. I think I'm changing what people think is sexy."

—Lady Gaga

PerformanceEdit

During her performance at Glastonbury in the UK, she performed a section of this song as an interlude before "Just Dance".
During the second leg of The Monster Ball Tour, a neon sign with the words "Sexy Ugly" is used while Gaga performs "Just Dance".

LyricsEdit

Hold me daddy, real tight.
They’ll take our picture in the spotlight.
Yeah, I know you love that limelight,
And how that DJ’s spinning tonight.
DJ!

Wish it, wash it down,
Gonna paint the town pink.
We don’t care what you think, sorry.

Everybody wants to be like us,
Filthy glamorous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.
Rock like us, silly and gorgeous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.

Hold your mama real tight,
She’s turning colors in the black light.
Soundophobic polite,
Don’t be afraid to shake that butt right.

Wish it wash it down,
Gonna paint the town pink.
We don’t care what you think, sorry.

Everybody wants to be like us,
Filthy glamorous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.
Rock like us, silly and gorgeous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.

You sex pot.
You sex pot.
You are a sex pot.
You are a sex pot.
You sex pot.
You sex pot.
You are a sex pot.
You are a sex pot.
You, sex, and pot.
Yeah.

Wish it wash it down,
Gonna paint the town pink.
We don’t care what you think, sorry.

Everybody wants to be like us,
Filthy glamorous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.
Rock like us, silly and gorgeous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.

Be like us,
Filthy glamorous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.
Rock like us, silly and gorgeous.
We know how to party
Sexy ugly.
