Anthony Ramos

"Black Woman"

[Verse 1]
You look at me like I'm unfamiliar
Like I'm brand new
Like you never knew that you liked them thick
I've been carrying this weight
In a world beneath these braids
And I'm confused
Would you take the pain that came
With all the parts you wanna claim for you

[Pre-Chorus]
You want my thighs
You want my stride
But not this melanin
You want my hair
But you don't care
For this complexion

[Chorus]
I'm a black woman
I'm a black woman
Cornbread fed
Sweat tea sippin'
Nubian Queen with the skin that glistens
I'm a black woman

[Verse 2]
Sixteen sittin' on the cold floor
In the corner after school
Recovering from your cover up
When you told me
I wasn't right for you
It wasn't hard to believe
'cus when I watch TV
I would never see
A leading lady look like me
Familiar package with less pigment
I ain't ignorant, it's just reality

[Pre-Chorus]
You want my thighs
You want my stride
But not this melanin
You want my hair
But you don't care
For this complexion

[Chorus]
I'm a black woman
I'm a black woman
Cornbread fed
Sweet tea sippin'
Nubian Queen with the skin that glistens
I'm a black woman

[Bridge]
The world tells me there is space for me
If I cinch it up
And I soak it in
The world tells me it'll all be mine
With some lashes on
And some lighter eyes
The world tells me it'll work for me
If I let 'em do a little surgery
The world tells me it'll change for me
With some longer nails
And some lightening cream

[Outro]
But I'm a black woman
(Lose myself to prove myself)
I'm a black woman
(We've come too far to right these wrongs)
'Cus I'm a black woman
'Cus I'm a black woman
