[Hook - Colin Munroe]
I love the way you
Put it on your eyes
The roses on your face
Light up the sky
Those lips are colorful
All of the time
And girl that's fine
But I wanna know do you mind
No makeup today (day) (x4)
And girl that's fine
But I wanna know do you mind

[Verse 1 - Kendrick Lamar]
I know she bout to ask me how she look
I tell her beautiful, and how long it took
For you to put it on
It was early in the morn'
She resembled a model out of a Mac book
Concentrating on the way the eyeliner thickens
I stand behind her and try to figure her vision
Of prettiness, the wittiness, of colors on her skin tone
Her complexion in a direction I've outgrown
Damn girl, why so much?
You bout to blow your cover when you cover up
Don't you know your imperfections
Is a wonderful blessing
From heaven, is where you got it from
I love your smile
You can do it without style
From your lips, all the way to your eyebrows
It's the beauty in her
But when the makeup occur
I don't see it, all I see is a blur

[Hook]

[Verse 2 - Kendrick Lamar (Woman)]
I know she bout to ask me how she look
I tell her beautiful and how long it took
For you to put it on
It was early in the morn'
She resembled a model out of a Macbook
(Concentrating on the way my) eyeliner thickens
(He stand behind me and try to) figure her vision
(Of prettyness, the wittiness of colors on my skin tone)
(My complexion in a direction) I've outgrown
(I feel like it's not enough)
(I can never put on too much makeup)
(Yeah I know) your imperfections
(I be constantly stressing)
(From him is where I get it from)
(They tell me I need to) smile
(At least once in a while)
(I hate my lips, my nose, my) eyebrows
(It's the beauty in me)
(But what he don't see)
(Is that I had a black)–(bleep)—
To be continued... 11

[Bridge]
Ladies and gentlemen
And you ain't gotta get drunk to have fun
You ain't gotta get drunk to have fun
You ain't gotta get drunk to have fun (have fun)

[Hook + Bridge]
