lyrics

Uh huh
For the queens... extra special you know

Yeah... yeah
Yow...yow... yow

Verse 1:

Black woman, you're a blessing to the earth
I pay attention to your lessons and your work
though the world forgot your measure and your worth
and I feel the same whenever you are hurt
in moments of weakness, there is strength still
and carrying a child takes immense will
you have it in you, to continue
triumphant, despite what you've been through
it's a man's world but life can't come from a man
you've experienced things I could never understand
you deserve honour, African madonna
be a baby mama, without the drama
teach the generations about this very nation
a proud race, ascending, elevating
it starts with our relationships
if we want to see a future for our kids

Chorus:

Black Beauty, you truly do move me
Black Beauty, you truly see through me
Black Beauty, you truly do soothe me
Black Beauty, you're truly good to me

Verse 2:

Skin black like oil, body thick like Molasses
Nia Long, Angela Bassett
I'm not just trying to assess yor assets
but I'd like to access your address
you more than a mistress on a mattress
been through different romances, liquor and
some dances, little bit of chances I wasted
'cause I didn't say shit, never knew how to play it
but it's a new day and I finally found courage
to tell you the real and be like "Fuck it"
I love it how we genuine friends
how you, keep it real, how you never pretend
never jealous of girls when I'm mentioning dem
men approaching you get disrespected again
and again, you a queen for real
so I say exactly what I mean and feel, yeah

Chorus

Verse 3:

For my true women, who been in situations
where the shit you facing leaves your heart breaking
I take into consideration how you feel
with patience, the wounds heal
it's too real, share with me, my eyes tear quickly
when I hear your pain, you made me change
I'm not the same as the men that hurt you
I'd rather love you, show you your worth boo
no money can amount to your spirit
drink from this fountain of lyrics
purely from the heart, bring light to the dark
start with respect, understanding
foundation for healthy families
so the kids can breathe and see who a man be
appreciating all the love that you have to offer
mother of creation, please forgive us when we falter

Chorus
