Cee Lo:
And it doesn't pertain to all black women because some of y'all
This particular song right here is dedicated to the black woman
disrespect
y'all selves bcause you don't know who you are in the first place.
Word up
This is out of respect to women period
I'm quite single
And occassionally I mingle
But aside from all the rest
You sparks my interest
No m'aam I don't know you
Just offerin the common respect I feel I owe you
Also, some conversation, companionship
Common ground and common sense
In me findin you here
There's no such thing as coincidence
And I really hate screamin in yo ear
So some other time, OK
I waited a day
Hello, this is Carlito
From a coupla days ago
Forgive me if I call you too late
You sound tired
But what better time to relate mindstate
Where could I begin?
Has anyone ever told you have beautiful skin?
You're more than welcome
I just wanna be
What do you desire within?
There's no need to put titles on you and me
Those are limitations
Equality, honesty, independence
Livin and learnin are our only obligations
Intelligence emotin and devotion
Humbly seekin to hear God when he's speakin to us
A one time my mind just couldn't concieve
A woman had to dress a certain way to believe
But, in the same breath allow me to say
That, if you believe, young lady, you wouldn't dress that way
And I was attracted to your class
I couldn't see all yo ass
And I was very content
You deserved every compliment
Indifferences make us the same
You gotta have some game, or
You ain't even gonna be able t take care of yoself
I love when I look at you, I see my reflection
So I offer my love, affection and protecton
Shorty, you dead fine
But the bottom line is, you still my sista
Chorus:
Well, I say
You're my beginnin, my end
You're my sista lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines from your beautiful skin
What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can
I met you and y'all knew
Gipp:
Saw you again on Marietta
Downtown Atlanta
Checkin your long legs, got me smirkin
Fixed me dinner one night, candles lit
Thought you was slick in the beginnin
Looked me in my eye
But it teurned out you wouldn't lie
I listened
Sucked it up, pushed on
We made amends
Both sides clicked, true friends
Since then, years done gon by
Household with no hope
Brought a baby girl into this world
Made our parents grandfolk
When shit got put out on the curb
Took care of ye, you me
Closer than the skin on the back of my hand
Through the thick and thin
Beautiful black skin
We can win
Chorus:
Khujo:
No need to compete
With the music loud
Or stairs cold
Put on a scale
Of one to ten, you a twelve
I chose her over jail and hell
Originally from ATL
Compatible souls come together
Under bad weather
T-Mo:
To discuss the mistrust
Amongst the so-called
Good in every woman
How I wish this was true
I deal with facts only
Already done cloned me
Why I sang the blues
When there's only one God that watches over our every step
When I'm walkin
I need his help
Lookin for the right female
I can't tell sometimes
They tell me the devil's comin humble in his approach
Spontaneous with the game
Caught the naive of a girl fallin for the OK
Let the pistol smoke the one you live by
Die by
Examples of how relationships can be
Khujo:
I rolls the dice
Takin a chance at crappin out
Like today boy
Natural thick lips
I lost one of my best hips
No animal fat implants
Wide load
This daughter workin at the airport
Worth more her weight in gold
19 years old
But it was all my fault
So don't cry, understand
And down the line I want you back
But the feelin ain't mutual
Just promise me you'll find a new man
That's bout some business
Like a ?????
Hope she find what her was lookin for
I wanted to be more than friends
Beautiful black skin (black skin)
Chorus
(repeat
