Dead Or Alive - Isn't It A Pity? Lyrics




(I must admit we do get along, he's quite a man!
No saint of course, but you must have expected that before you married him.
Maybe that was why you married him...)

I'm a kind of hybrid of a cartoon and a feature,
Some have thought me lovely, others saw an ugly creature.
Some have thought me right at times and others found me tired,
And I couldn't count the times that my backside has been admired.

Beauty is glitter in my eyes,
I really wanted roses but you sent me custard pies.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world,
sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world?
But sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

I'm a kind of cross between a pupil and a teacher,
Some have found me lovely, others saw an ugly creature.
I have found my image has obscured all that I am,
But who said you can't mix vinegar with jam?

Beauty is glitter in my eyes,
I really wanted roses but you sent me custard pies.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world?
But sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world,
sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

Isn't it a pity (the London image makers...
Face is made for mirror breakage,
You know their magazines
Can not affect my self esteem!)

Beauty...

I'm a kind of hybrid of a cartoon and a feature,
Some have thought me lovely, others saw an ugly creature.
Some have thought me right at times and others found me tired,
And I couldn't count the times that my backside has been admired.

Beauty is glitter in my eyes,
I really wanted roses but you sent me custard pies.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world,
sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

Isn't it a pity that I'm not the prettiest girl in the world?
But sometimes I feel when I kick up my heels in the sun,
I'm the loveliest one.

    Goddamnit, stop saying Pete stole this from Melanie. He didn't, he made a cover of it. There have been so many covers of You Spin Me Round, and the one time he makes a complete cover he's the bad guy? There is nothing wrong with making a cover of another song, he has done this many times before, a lot of bands make covers of other bands' music. It's a sign of admiration for that song/band, and it can even make that song popular. And this isn't an exact copy because he sung it this time and there are obviously different instruments in the background. The lyrics are just the same, so get over it.
    Even if he didn't credit Melanie, there's nothing he can do to change it because he passed away

  4. justynjonn

    Sometimes Pete got a little philosophical on us, a little self reflective with this , possibly revealing with this song and Far Too Hard. Big fan. R I P.

    Sweet Clarity

    This a cover of a different song, he didn't write the lyrics

  6. Mary B. Hopkins

    Pete was truly amazing & this song is almost auto-biographical in a way if you listen to or have even read the lyrics!

  7. Robert Salmon

    RIP Pete. Too early.

  9. Dia Huizinga

    Super! Pete Burns covering Melanie (Safka). Is it true, Pete, are you a Melanie fan? That's what I heard! Good taste!

  10. Ian Walker

    Isn't it a pity that Melanie Safka was neither credited nor mentioned re this recording? The words and rhythm of the chorus are entirely hers.

    Because her version sucked. This one is so much better.

  11. Randy InCanton

    This is pure plagiarism. The chorus was actually written word for word by the artist MELANIE. The song it's been stolen from ("Isn't It A Pity") can be found on Melanie's album, THE GOOD BOOK.

    TigerLily

    Every heard of sampling or covering?

    victoria

    Randy InCanton It's a cover. Calm down.

    Sweet Clarity

    It's a cover dude. Not plagiarism

  12. Agris Kronka

    good song

    Great song. So sad these later albums weren't widely released.
