Nicole C. Mullen – Homemade lyrics

Riding the city bus
On the way to school
Me and my two sisters
And all the ridicule
The older girls on the back of the bus
Would laugh and call us names
They'd talk about our hair, our clothes
And call us homemade

See the not-so-good old days could make you
Weak or make you brave

And I've never been
The most beautiful
No, I ain't never been
The most popular
But it's amazing what
Love can do
It's amazing what
A little love can do

Every thought and action
Is like a boomerang
What goes around will come back, baby
So careful what you say
And the little ugly ducklings
Are swans that got away
'Cause Cinderella stories,
They still happen every day

Well, the not-so-good old days could make you
Weak or make you brave

[Repeat Chorus]

See I bumped into a stanger
Just the other day
She said, "Can you spare a dollar, sista?
My man, he ain't got paid."
And so I gave her what I had
Then I recognized her face
She was the leader of the girls who used to
Call us homemade

Back when the not-so-good old days could make you
Weak or make you brave
And then I told her. . .

See I have never been (never been)
The most beautiful
And don't really care that I ain't never been (never been)
The most popular
'Cause it's amazing what
Love will do
Now hang on, it's amazing what
Homemade love, what homemade love will do

Yeah. . .
Mama said, "This is what homemade love would do". . .
