You're only acting like you are somebody
But I don't love to say, you're not nobody
Don't exhaust your painted face, girl
'Cause underneath that face, you're just have disgrace

And you're just a brand new second hand, you'll make no one fool
You're just a brand new second hand, I only confess you
You're brand new second hand, dirty golden rule
You're just a brand new second hand

What you've got, girl that I don't know
Why you really, really got to exalt yourself so
Mama used to tell me a long time ago, girl
It's not everything you own that glitters is gold

So you're just a brand new second hand, yes girl, no man no want no
Brand new second hand, you better go back round so girl
Brand new second hand, don't you show us
Brand new second hand

If you think it's the dress you wear that makes you a lady
Get that out of your mind, you must be crazy

You're just a brand new second hand, yes girl, no man no want
Brand new second hand, yes girl, no bother come show off so
You're just a brand new second hand, use to
