Music Video Lesson - One Direction

Average: 4.2 (23 votes)

I kind of like this song...but don't tell anyone! Why? Because it's a guilty pleasure, something we like even though we know we shouldn't. A guilty pleasure will usually cause your friends to laugh at you and remind you of how silly you are constantly. Listen to this song by young boy-band One Direction (oh the shame) and fill the gaps with the missing words. Then let me know your guilty pleasures, if you dare!

One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful

You're _1_
Don't know what for
You're turning heads when you walk through the _2_
Don't need _3_
To cover up
Being the way that you are is enough

Everyone else in the room can see it
Everyone else but you

[Chorus]
Baby you light up my world like nobody else
The way that you flip your hair gets me _4_
But you when smile at the ground it aint hard to tell
You don't know
You don't know you're beautiful

If only you saw what I can see
You'll understand why I want you so _5_
Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe
You don't know
You don't know you're beautiful
Oh oh
But that's what makes you beautiful

So c-come on
You got it _6_
To prove I'm right I put it in a song
I don't why
You're being _7_
And turn away when I look into your eyes
