A performance of "Thank God I'm Pretty".

"Thank God I'm Pretty" is the third track of the second disc of Opheliac, but the first of the second disc of the deluxe edition of the same album. It's a fan favorite and serves as the closing song to every show Emilie performs. Certain live performances of the song included
TGIP Tank Icon medium

The "Thank God I'm Pretty" tank top.

the Bloody Crumpets stripping Emilie to nothing but her undergarments. A popular aspect of the performance is Veronica standing behind Emilie during the last few lines, and holding up her feather-fans to Emilie's back, resembling angel wings.

The song is meant to be a satricial and sarcastic way of describing sexual harassment, rape culture, and being objectified by men. It was the inspiration for one of the most popular Emilie Autumn merchandise items, a shirt with an image of a kneeling, praying skeleton with the words "Thank God I'm Pretty" printed underneath it. It was available as both a women's tank top and a unisex t-shirt.

Lyrics Edit

Thank God I'm pretty
The occasional free drink I never asked for
The occasional admission to a seedy little bar
Invitation to a stranger's car
I'm blessed with the ability to render grown men tongue-tied
Which only means that when it's dark outside
I have to run and hide
Can't look behind me
Thank God I'm pretty

Thank God I'm pretty
Every skill I ever have will be in question
Every ill that I must suffer clearly brought on by myself
Though the cops would come for someone else
I'm blessed
I'm truly privileged to look this good without clothes on
Which only means that when I sing you're jerking off
And when I'm gone you won't remember
Thank God I'm pretty

Thank you, God
Oh Lord
Thank you, God
Oh, oh

And when a gaggle of faces appears around me
It's lucky I hate to be taken seriously
I think my ego would fall right through the cracks in the floor
If I couldn't count on men to slap my ass anymore
I know my destiny's such
That I'm all stocking and curl
So everybody thinks that I'm a fucking Suicide Girl

Oh, thank you, God
For the occasional champagne I never asked for
The occasional admission to a seedy little bar
Invitation to a stranger's car
I'm blessed
With the ability to render grown men tongue-tied
Which only means that when it's dark outside
I have to run and hide
Can't look behind me
Thank God I'm pretty

Thank God, Thank God
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, God
