I do what I do is extraordinary indeed
I can birth a man child
and raise him right you see.
I go to work maintaining my status
I can buy and fry the bacon
adding tomato and lettuce.
I do what I do with little money in the bank,
I can stretch a meal and dress to kill
and get the attention of many men still.
I do what I do is the reason I breathe
a match together like cornbread and greens.
I'm empowered to be me, I have a degree.
A tiger in business, brilliant in making decisions.
Can bounce back from failure, I pay my own bills.
My strong faith keeps negativity on wheels.
I do what I do is amazing at best
there is no one like me
I'm a cut above the rest.
Did I mention I'm protective
like a bullet proof vest?
Stiletto wearing queen, don't try to test.
Yeah I'm curvy, nervy, daring oh yes,
but what do you expect?
I am a single woman doing all this.
I have plumpy lips, big oh hips,
thighs that's fat, round butt to match,
hour glass shape, I look good in my cap.
