"Perfect Isn't Easy" is a song featured in the film, Disney's Oliver & Company. It is sung by Georgette during her introduction.

This song shows all the fancy belongings in Georgette's bedroom and all the rewards she had won, as well as showcasing her ego.


Girl, we've got work to do
Pass me the paint and glue
Perfect isn't easy
But it's me

When one knows the world is watching
One does what one must
Some minor adjustments, darling
Not for my vanity, but for humanity

Each little step a pose
See how the breeding shows, uh!
Sometimes it's too much
For even me!

But when all the world says, "Yes"
Then who am I to say "No"?
Don't ask a mutt to strut like a show girl
No, girl, you need a pro

Not a flea or a flaw
Take a peek at that paw
La dee da da
Perfection becomes me, n'est-ce pas?

Unrivaled, unruffled
I'm beauty unleashed, yeah
Jaws drop, hearts stop
So classic and classy; we're not talking Lassie

And ahh! Ahh! Ooh!
Ow! Ow! Ow! Ruff ruff ruff! Ow!

Though many covet my bone and bowl
They're barking up the wrong tree
You pretty pups all over the city
I have your hearts and you have my pity

Pretty is nice, but still
It's just pretty
Perfect, my dears
Is me!


  • Ratigan from The Great Mouse Detective and a Hanna-Barbera character Scooby-Doo make cameo appearances in Georgette's photos. However, since Ratigan is a rodent, not a canine, it is highly unusual for him to be one of Georgette's boyfriends.
