THE BLACK WOMAN BLUES
They say the black woman is beautiful; but,
You can't prove that by her. You see, she's been
Blinded by the rows of blonde heads in front of
They say be proud of your short, brown hair,
Dark-skin, and chocolate-colored eyes. She would be,
If their long, blond hair, milky-white-skin,
And sky-blue eyes; weren't smirking at her.
They say brown skin is exotic and mystical,
Yeah, well, she'd rather be plain and beautiful.
