Hairspray LIVE! - Big, Blonde and Beautiful Lyrics

"Big, Blonde and Beautiful" is a song from Hairspray LIVE! performed by Jennifer Hudson (Motormouth).

MOTORMOUTH
Once upon a time
Girl, I was just like you
Never let my extra large
Largesse shine through

Hair was brown and nappy
Never had no fun
I hid under a bushel
Which is easier said than done!

Then one day my grandma
Who was big and stout
She said you gotta love yourself
From inside out

And just as soon as I learned
How to strut my funky stuff
I found out that the world at large
Cant get enough so...

Bring on that pecan pie
Pour some sugar on it
Sugar, don't be shy

Scoop me up a mess
Of that chocolate swirl
Don't be stingy,
I'm a growing girl

I offer big love
With no apology
How can I deny the world
The most of me

I am not afraid
To throw my weight around
Pound by pound by pound
Because I'm

Big, blonde and beautiful
There is nothin' 'bout me
That's unsuitable

No one wants a meal
That only offers the least
When girl we're servin' up
The whole damn feast

Slice off a piece
Of that hog head cheese
Then take a look inside
My book of recipes

Now, don't you sniff around
For something fluffy and light
I need a man who brings
A man-size... Appetite

I'll use a pinch of sugar
And a dash of spice
I'll let ya lick the spoon
Because it tastes so nice

I keep it in my oven
'Til it's good and hot
Keep on stirring til it hits the spot
Because I'm...

Big, blonde and beautiful
And Edna girl, you're lookin' so recruitable
Why sit in the bleachers
Timid and afraid when Edna,
You can be your own parade!

TRACY
So? How 'bout it, Mama?

EDNA
Well, I am big, I am blonde, and if you say I'm beautiful...

WILBUR
You're beautiful! Ruff!

EDNA
Alright, I'll do it!

MOTORMOUTH
Yeaaa! Look out old Baltimore
We're marching in
'And we ain't shufflin'
Through that old back door

EDNA
And Tracy, I will join the fight
If I can keep up this pace

WILBUR
And girls, I'll be right at your side
If I can find some space

MOTORMOUTH
So they can gaze in wonder
As you're spreadin' your wings
You know that it ain't over
'Til the fat lady sings

Tomorrow, side by side
We'll show the world what's right

EDNA
Then we'll have chicken parmigiana tonight

MOTORMOUTH
Then we'll be big, blond and beautiful
It's time to face the fact
It's irrefutable

Can't ya hear that rumbling?
That's our hunger to be free
It's time to finally taste
Equality

COUNCIL MEMBERS / MOMS

Where thin is in, we're white as wool

Well, ladies, big is back
And as for black, it's beautiful
All shapes and sizes, follow me
