Beautiful Black Women don’t cry.
Beautiful Black Women even when he lies.
Beautiful Black Women stand tall and don’t die.
Beautiful Black Women with low self-esteem hold your head up.
Beautiful Black Women, you’re here on this earth, so think about it. Don’t fear to appear.
Beautiful Black Women don’t get played, just to get laid,
Say no to the lion paws all over your body for his selfish laws.
We laughed, we played, we made love, and he took all my stuff.
He made love to me, he loved me and took all my stuff.
The house, the cars, my love, he took all my stuff.
My job, my money, my honey, he took all my stuff.
My life, my jazz, he took all my stuff.
God gave it back!
