Kacey Musgraves – Pageant Material lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s certain things you’re s’posed to know
When you’re a girl who grows up in the south
I try to use my common sense
But my foot always ends up in my mouth
And if I had to walk a runway in high heels in front of the whole town
I’d fall down
And my mama cried
When she realized

[Chorus]

I ain’t pageant material

I’m always higher than my hair

And it ain’t that I don’t care about world peace

But I don’t see how I can fix it in a swimsuit on a stage

I ain’t exactly Ms. Congenial

Sometimes I talk before I think, I try to fake it but I can’t

I’d rather lose for what I am than win for what I ain’t

[Verse 2]

God bless the girls who smile and hug

When they’re called out as a runner up on TV

I wish I could, but I just can’t

Wear a smile when a smile ain’t what I’m feelin’

And who’s to say I’m a 9.5

Or a 4.0 if you don’t even know me

Life ain’t always roses and pantyhose

And…

[Chorus]

I ain’t pageant material

I’m always higher than my hair

And it ain’t that I don’t care about world peace

But I don’t see how I can fix it in a swimsuit on a stage

I ain’t exactly Ms. Congenial

Sometimes I talk before I think, I try to fake it but I can’t

I’d rather lose for what I am than win for what I ain’t

[Intstrumental bridge]

[Chorus]

I ain’t pageant material

The only crown is in my glass

They won’t be handin’ me a sash

And that’s okay, cause there’s no way

You’ll ever see me in a swimsuit on a stage

I ain’t exactly Ms. Congenial

Sometimes I talk before I think, I try to fake it but I can’t

I’d rather lose for what I am than win for what I ain’t

Yeah I’d rather lose for what I am than win for what I ain’t
