|We're Only in It for the Money track listing|
"What's the Ugliest Part of Your Body?" is a song written by Frank Zappa and released on the Mothers of Invention album We're Only in It for the Money in 1968. The song appears twice on the album: once on the side one (track 8 on the CD version of the album), and once as a reprise on the side two (track 17 on the CD).
As suggested in the title of the song, the lyrics ask what the ugliest part of a person's body is. It is quickly revealed that it is not any physical body part (like the "nose" or the "toes") but, in fact, it is the mind that is the ugliest.

The song was covered by Die Ärzte along with "Stick It Out" as a medley for the single of "Friedenspanzer", partly sung in German. It also has been covered by Chumbawamba (on the 7" compilation EP Gay Pride) and Jon Poole (on his album of Zappa covers What's the Ugliest Part of Your Body?).
