Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: April 26, 2011
By: Cast of West Side Story/TLC
Sung by: Quinn Fabray and Rachel Berry
Place: Rachel's Doctor's Office, The Choir Room, Hallway, Girl's Bathroom, Rachel's Room, and Classroom
Episode: Born This Way

I Feel Pretty/Unpretty from West Side Story/TLC is a mash-up featured in Born This Way, the eighteenth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Quinn and Rachel.

It is performed as Quinn and Rachel pose for pictures that are then used to make photo composites of what Rachel would look like with Quinn's nose. It is sung by Rachel to express her lack of confidence in the way she looks, especially when compared to Quinn, who she considers beautiful. Quinn sings this to express her jealousy toward Rachel, because of the deep feelings Finn still has for her, and the fact that she is beautiful naturally. She had to change her appearance completely to be seen as beautiful by others.

Quinn:
I wish I could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you?
Look into the mirror who's inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today, hey

Rachel:
My outsides are cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think I'm through
It's because of you
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
I'm just trippin'

Quinn (and Rachel):
(You can buy your hair if it won't grow)
You can fix your nose if he says so (Rachel: Ahh ahh)
(You can buy all the make up
That M.A.C. can make
But if, you can't look inside you)
Find out who am I to (Rachel: Ahh ahh)
(Be in a position to make me feel so)

Rachel:
Damn unpretty

Quinn (with Rachel):
I feel pretty (Rachel: Oh, so pretty)
I feel (pretty and witty and bright)

Rachel:
Never insecure until I met you
Now I'm bein' stupid
I used to be so cute to me

Quinn (and Rachel):
(Just a little bit skinny)
Why do I look to all these things
(To keep you happy)

Rachel:
Maybe get rid of you
And then I'll get back to me, hey!

Quinn:
My outsides look cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think I'm through
It's because of you

Rachel:
I've tried different ways
But it's all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
Keep on trippin'

Quinn (and Rachel):
(You can buy your hair if it won't grow)
You can fix your nose if he says so (Rachel: Ahh ahh)
(You can buy all the make up
That M.A.C. can make
But if, you can't look inside you)
Find out who am I to (Rachel: Ahh ahh)
(Be in a position to make me feel so)

Rachel:
Damn unpretty

Quinn (with Rachel):
I feel pretty (Rachel: Oh, so pretty)
I feel (pretty and witty and bright) and I pity

Rachel:
Any girl who isn't me tonight

Quinn:
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (Rachel: Tonight)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (Rachel: Tonight)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (Rachel: Tonight)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Rachel (Quinn):
I feel pretty (You can buy your hair if it won't grow)
Oh, so pretty (You can fix your nose if he says so)
I feel pretty and witty and bright (You can buy all the make up that M.A.C. can make, but if)

Quinn (and Rachel):
(You can't look inside you)
Find out who am I to (Rachel: Ahh ahh)
(Be in a position to make me feel so)

Rachel:
Damn unpretty

Quinn (and Rachel):
I feel pretty
(But unpretty...)
