brazen beauty

if i ain't rocking my curls and waves
well i ain't bein' me
and if "ain't" ain't used in every sentence
well it oughta be

oh best believe i'm proud of this wide nose
and my full lips
they fit perfectly with my full chest
and voluptuous hips

they tried to keep me down, you see
but ain't no secret why this caged bird sings
i know i'm beautiful and it keeps me strong
oh they wonder how i keep it up so long

i do as i please
and ain't stoppin' no time soon
for my brown resembles the black
that outlines the endless moon

i ain't wanted nothing but to be black and happy
and thats all i need
my skin and me
wrapped tightly underneath a palm tree
