2) Black woman by Danielle Brooks

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

Thanks!
