Slavery

Today's gonna be a long (--) day
Cuz im lokking a hot mess
Working hard in this sun
My back hurtin
My master telling me idk how to dress

Shoot! Don't look at me
Cuz im getting cranky
Bus as you can see
This is where I have to be

I have no freedom
No liberty
I am nothing to these people
My life is working all day, all night

I'm over here,
Cookin in the kitchen
Picken out cotton
And cleanin all the rooms
I am no where near...
Where I need to be

Ouf! Today will be a long day
Ouf! Today will be a long day
