Beyoncé – BROWN SKIN GIRL lyrics
[Intro: SAINt JHN & Blue Ivy Carter]
Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
Never trade you for anybody else
Singin' brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'
...

[Verse 1: Wizkid]
She said she really grew up poor like me
Don't believe in nothin' but the almighty
Just a likkle jeans and a pure white tee
She never did forever be nobody wifey, yeah
So while I may not pretty boy, your heart is amiss
Play it like a villain 'cause she caught in a wave
Tonight I am walkin' away
Lined up my mind, on the grind, yeah, yeah


[Pre-Chorus: Wizkid]
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me


[Chorus: Wizkid]
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
Pose like a trophy when Naomis walk in
She need an Oscar for that pretty dark skin
Pretty like Lupita when the cameras close in
Drip broke the levee when my Kellys roll in
I think tonight she might braid her braids
Melanin too dark to throw her shade
She minds her business and winds her waist
Gold like 24k, okay

[Pre-Chorus: Wizkid & Beyoncé]
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me


[Chorus: Wizkid & Beyoncé]
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Verse 3: Beyoncé]
Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately? (Lately)
Wish you could trade eyes with me (Because)
There's complexities in complexion
But your skin, it glow like diamonds
Dig me like the earth, you be giving birth
Took everything in life, baby, know your worth
I love everything about you, from your nappy curls
To every single curve, your body natural
Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin' over
Most things out of focus, view
But when you're in the room, they notice you (Notice you)
'Cause you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
Them men, them gon' fall in love with you and all of your glory
Your skin is not only dark, it shines and it tells your story
Keep dancin', they can't control you
They watchin', they all adore you
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told you

[Chorus: Beyoncé & Wizkid]
Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin girl)
Your back against the world (Oh)
I never trade you for anybody else, say (No, no)
Brown skin girl (Brown skin girl), ya skin just like pearls (Brown skin)
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say

[Outro: Blue Ivy Carter]
Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'...

    The meaning of the song Brown Skin Girl, is all but a shallow, racist song. It is a song empowering black females and males, after all struggles our race has been , The least people could do is allow us to make music. There is always a problem with movies or songs that empower and uplift the black race, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the song. It teaches black people that their skin is beautiful and they worth just as much as any race. Our skin tells our story and we are proud to be black, there is nothing wrong with a little a little appreciation of our melanin. People get tans to look like us, they steal our culture as if it's nothing. They do extreme things to be like us, but yet you try to bring us down? We are black and proud, a beautiful race of people. Melanin popping off and people can't handle that. WE ARE BEAUTIFUL. Our skin shines and it does tell our story indeed. REMEMBER WHAT MAMA TOLD YOU. Your skin is dark and beautiful, black don't crack and no one can take that away from us. Mama told me there would be people who wouldn't want to see me shine, ignore the people who want to keep you down. Brown Skin Girl is all about appreciation and our ongoing fight against people who can't see us for who we are, which are humans just like them, if they don't accept you, that absolutely fine, ignorant, but fine. People know all our race has been through and we are stronger for it. CAN'T LET NO ONE COME CONTROL ME. I am my own person, i am intelligent, I am strong, i have 4c hair, dark skin, and an extreme ancestry but my skin is not only dark, it is beautiful, so what if I feel self titled and a bit selfish sometimes, there is nothing wrong with being black and confident.Brown skin girl, your melanin is too dark throw shade your way, be proud.

    I'm sorry for those who actually believe this song is a shallow racist song. I'm really sorry that they can't see that all the singers are singing about is the beauty and wonder that is the melanin rich skin. I'm an African and I'm proud to have such skin and I feel happy to know that there are people who feel the same to the level that they went ahead to sing about it!
    This song is simply a wonderful song and nothing can change that about it.

    Would it be possible to get honest feedback on a theory I have? If Carrie Underwood sang a song entitled White Skinned Girl, would there be haters out there saying it was racist? I believe there would be and I would say they are right. I believe that until people who are empowered with ability to influence others talk about or sing about people just being people, and passing on the discrimination of color, that they are actually the ones promoting racism. Until these differences are not the highlight of the song or in general the comparison between people, we will continue to see the American society as a racist society. So how about we don't all single out ourselves because we are a certain color. Lets stop promoting racism....at some point, when we look at each other and just see another person no matter what thier skin color is, we will all be better off. I hope someday this happens.

    Song is just another example of double standard. Song is shallow. About what their own eyes behold in skin of their own color. Totally racist driven song. Its all aboutnrace with fake hollywood always have to pull out magic wand and make ya FORGET WHAT MAMA SAID. aint that the truth.. ya B
