Ain't that Pretty at All is a song by LeRoy Marinell and Warren Zevon from the latter's 1982 album, The Envoy.

About the Song Edit

Showing a classic cynical attitude that Warren Zevon became known for, the song's main theme is based upon seeing the world and in the end not being all that impressed with it. Throughout the song he describes his visits to such places as Paris or Rome, brushing them off by saying that they "ain't that pretty at all". In the end Zevon describes that he wants to hurl himself against the wall, because he would rather feel bad about something than feel nothing at all.

Well, I've seen all there is to see

And I've heard all they have to say

I've done everything I wanted to do . . .

I've done that too

And it ain't that pretty at all

Ain't that pretty at all

So I'm going to hurl myself against the wall

'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all


You know, I just had a short vacation, Roy

Spent it getting a root canal

"Oh, how'd you like it?"

Well, it ain't that pretty at all

So I'm going to hurl myself against the wall

'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all


Gonna get a good running start and throw myself at the wall as hard as I can man


I've been to Paris

And it ain't that pretty at all

I've been to Rome

Guess what?

I'd like to go back to Paris someday and visit the Louvre Museum

Get a good running start and hurl myself at the wall

Going to hurl myself against the wall

'Cause I'd rather feel bad than feel nothing at all

And it ain't that pretty at all

Ain't that pretty at all
