Wednesday’s Words & Lyrics: Beautiful Skin by Goodie Mob

Beautiful Skin Goodie Mob
Cee Lo:
This particular song right here is dedicated to the black woman and it doesn't pertain to all black women because some of y'all disrespect y'all selves because you don't know who you are in the first place.
This is out of respect to women period
Word up

I'm quite single
And occasionally I mingle
But aside from all the rest
You sparks my interest
No m'aam I don't know you
Just offering the common respect I feel I owe you
Also, some conversation, companionship
Common ground and common sense
There's no such thing as coincidence
In me findin you here
And I really hate screamin in yo ear
So some other time, OK
I waited a day
Hello, this is Carlito
From a couple days ago
You sound tired
Forgive me if I call you too late
But what better time to relate mind state
Where could I begin?
Has anyone ever told you have beautiful skin?
You're more than welcome
What do you desire within?
I just wanna be
There's no need to put titles on you and me
Those are limitations
Livin and learnin are our only obligations
Equality, honesty, independence
Intelligence emotion and devotion
Humbly seekin to hear God when he's speakin to us
At one time my mind just couldn't conceive
A woman had to dress a certain way to believe
But, in the same breath allow me to say
That, if you believe, young lady, you wouldn't dress that way
And I was attracted to your class
I couldn't see all yo ass
And I was very content
You deserved every compliment
Indifferences make us the same
You gotta have some game, or
You ain't even gonna be able t take care of yoself
I love when I look at you, I see my reflection
So I offer my love, affection and protection
Shorty, you dead fine
But the bottom line is, you still my sista
Well, I say
You're my beginnin, my end
You're my sista lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines from your beautiful skin
What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can
I met you and y'all knew
Saw you again on Marietta
Downtown Atlanta
Checkin your long legs, got me smirkin
Fixed me dinner one night, candles lit
Thought you was slick in the beginnin
But it turned out you wouldn't lie
Looked me in my eye
I listened
Sucked it up, pushed on
We made amends
Both sides clicked, true friends
Since then, years done gone by
Brought a baby girl into this world
Made our parents grand folk
Household with no hope
Took care of ye, you me
When shit got put out on the curb
Closer than the skin on the back of my hand
Through the thick and thin
We can win
Beautiful black skin
No need to compete
With the music loud
Or stairs cold
Put on a scale
Of one to ten, you a twelve
I chose her over jail and hell
Originally from ATL
Compatible souls come together
Under bad weather
To discuss the mistrust
Amongst the so-called
Good in every woman
How I wish this was true
I deal with facts only
Already done cloned me
Why I sang the blues
When there's only one God that watches over our every step
I need his help
When I'm walkin
Lookin for the right female
I can't tell sometimes
They tell me the devil's comin humble in his approach
Spontaneous with the game
Caught the naive of a girl fallin for the OK
Let the pistol smoke the one you live by
Die by
Examples of how relationships can be
I rolls the dice
Takin a chance at crappin out
Like today boy
I lost one of my best hips
Natural thick lips
No animal fat implants
Wide load
This daughter workin at the airport
19 years old
Worth more her weight in gold
But it was all my fault
So don't cry, understand
And down the line I want you back
But the feelin ain't mutual
Just promise me you'll find a new man
That's bout some business
Hope she find what her was lookin for
Like a ?????
I wanted to be more than friends
Beautiful black skin (black skin)
