Mirror mirror on the wall,
What’s the unfairest thing of all?
Why must we let this rule of hot
Decide who is and who is not?

V E R S E 1
So you’re lookin’ for a girl with a pair of decent boobs
And a narrow waist, a bangin’ ass, she better wax her pubes
And long blonde hair and pouty lips and blazing eyes, albeit
You don’t really have a list of traits. You’ll know it when you see it.

P R E - C H O R U S 1
But what calls her to your notice? Pheromones or DNA?
Or subscribing to the beauty myths the culture throws your way?
Or is it something that, no matter what, you must obey

C H O R U S 1
Is it destiny or a crude transaction?
Either way, you can’t break the law of attraction

V E R S E 2
Is she looking for the kind of guy who’ll spend a couple bucks?
Are you wearing last year’s fashions like some dude nobody fucks?
Are you workin’ on your moves and trying to reach a higher stratum?
Do you think when Eve got to the garden, she said, “Let me at ’im”?

P R E - C H O R U S 2
Go ahead and try to up your game. Go on and shave your pits
You can tighten up your abs, and you can cover up those zits
For every hundred misses, mister, there’s a couple hits

C H O R U S 2
Try to beat the odds, demanding satisfaction
But there’s no way to fake the law of attraction

You’ve heard that love is blind
But it seems it’s also crass
Do you want peace of mind
Or just a piece of ass?
‘Cause beauty’s only skin deep
At least till you get in deep

V E R S E 3
You could spend another lifetime all in trying to crack the code
While you rail against the other sex like they’re a thing you’re owed
Or assert each woman is a sister, every man a brother
But then you are still an animal, the same as any other

P R E - C H O R U S 1
You can’t argue with an instinct, you can’t reason with a doubt
You can battle mother nature, but it’s gonna be a rout
If the eye of the beholder snubs you, you can’t pluck it out

C H O R U S 3
The wheels of justice they won’t get you any action
And you cannot forsake the law of attraction
No, you cannot forsake the law of attraction
