C                          G 
She's got nice lips, a seductive smile 
C
She's still as thin as a beanpole,
                   G
with a little less class, but a little more style 
        F
And she spends all her time trying not to hear you
         G 
What she doesn't want to know 
        C
Don't wanna know

              C
And there's Kellogg's in the cupboard 
              G
She takes a heart down from off the shelf
C 
She passes by the mirror 
                    G
She doesn't like to look at herself 
            F 
Cause she'd rather lose touch with reality 
     G
than lose her fantasy 
         C
Her fantasy

         G                     F
And her smile is as faded as a used pair of jeans 
                  G
And her heart is frayed around the edges 
                F 
she's comin' undone at the seams 
                  C 
And it's her last chance to make a statement 
              G
It's her last known apathy 
        F                     G       F   
She's a 5    -    0   -     1 beauty queen

And there's flowers on the table 
she's lovely, she's lovely not 
But circles only make the hunger grow 
so she goes out a lot 
she's out there just a runnin around 
Trying to make up some lost time 
Lost time 

And she sits down for a social call 
Like a princess she puffs on a cigarette 
beauty is all threadbare now 
But she's never gonna let them forget 
Cause my how she looked smashing in her gold lame tank top 
With the fancy beadwork on front 
The beadwork's on front 

But her smile is as faded as a used pair of jeans 
And her heart is frayed around the edges 
comin' undone at the seams 
And it's her last chance to make a statement 
It's her last known apathy 

She's a 501 beauty queen 

And a voice chimes like a bell in the night 
that just don't know when to quit 
She used to have more options 
Now she wishes that she'd already picked 
wishes she couldn't remember 
all those things she'll never forget 
Never forget. 

And the lines they all go deeper than the days of her youth 
She flirts and lies and always denies what to her is no longer of any 
use 

But it's not because she hates what she doesn't understand 
She just don't understand 

And her fire is as faded as a used pair of jeans 
her heart is frayed around the edges 
She's comin' undone at the seams 
And it's her last chance to make a statement 
It's her last known apathy 
She's a 501 beauty queen
