Am I Selfish?

I want money, beauty, an fame,
and not 2 hav any momentz of shame.
Am I selfish?

I luv 2 watch T.V.,
I luv 2 listen 2 music all day bcuz datz jus me.
Am I selfish?

I hate skoo itz a drag,
I'd rather cum out of a store wit mo' dan 1 bag.
Am I selfish?
I want a boy who is mine an only mine,
wit me he spendz all his time.
Am I selfish?

I pray every night,
I told God 2 bless everything tonight.
Am I selfish?
I want a guy who wants to luv me,
me an only me ya c?
Am I selfish?
I want to look an dance like Ciara,
I want to b a gurl 4rm da hood an still wear a tiara.

Am I selfish?
I'm aggresive an loud,
hmm but I'm BLACK an proud.
Am I selfish?
I don't want to be sumbody dat was made,
cuz sooner or later they'll fade.
Am I selfish?

I wanna be real,
not fake, not fantsay, but da real deal.
Am I selfish?
I'm lost an I want 2 b found,
do u feel my pain in the sound.
Am I selfish?
I want a boi 2 understand an tell me he cares,

sum1 hu listenz an will be there.
Am I selfish?
Like alot of ppl i want a lot in life,
an I wanna take a stab @ it like a knife.
So...does DAT make me SELFISH?
