They will tell you your nappy hair isn't beautiful to your face, like you're not a product of the finest race
Keep your kinky hair straight and brush it with long strokes for hours before it's too late
Your rich chocolate coated skin isn’t fair and doesn't look right, bleach it till you almost turn white
Leaving you looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost, but trust me nothing friendly about how you'll look
Make you feel ashamed of your heritage, convince you to forget about your lineage
Deceive you into thinking you've no purpose and you'll never be as ravishing as a rose
Whilst trying to steal your elegant culture from under your nose
Please don't listen!
Cause you are enough, far worth more than a thousand diamonds in the rough
Beautiful as you are, which is why they tan their skins to look like you!
You're alluring beauty is probably why God had to rest on the seventh day and catch his breath
Cause you, you are breathtaking leaving everyone that walks your path gasping for air
So please listen and don't lose your way
