Whus Blacka

February 2, 2016

Whus Blacka dan
Hands in yo hair
Weavin clouds down ta earf
Trickin gravity
Duckin laws
Makin mo beautiful
Da mos beautiful
Whus Blacka dan
Warm legs huggin yo arms
And stiff necks from bein tol ta
Turn dis way
Hol ya head down
Dis awl we know
An we know it
Whateva make us keep stannin up
So big and proud I swea
mus come from da head down
Is dat why we got awl dis hair
so tagetha
Why we cuh take pig grease and turn miracles
Whus Blacka dan a way from no way
Whus mo beautiful
