The Cure

by Jamal Sharif

     Can't nobody love you
     like a sista do
     brothers try to argue through
     they know it's true
     can't nobody talk like a sister/cuss like a sister/mutha fuck you
     like a sister/say I love you like a sista
     can't nobody strut like a sista
     like fine black wine
     impossible to ignore
     unspoken queenly gracefulness
     when a sista takes the floor
     whatever ails a brother
     a sista is the cure
     can't nobody cook like a sister/try like a sister and
     damn sho don't nobody
     cry like a sister
     can't nobody bear pain like a sister can
     show me a sista who won't do for her man
     won't nobody stick wit cha like a sister
     sisters stay longer than y'all deserve
     a sister still be lovin you when
     life done kicked you to the curb
     can't nobody make love like a sista
     suck like a sista/fuck like a sista
     full hips/fantasmic trips
     aint nothin like a sister's taste
     on a brother's lips
     don't nobody have babies
     like sisters/groan like a sista/moan like a sista
     create beautiful black babies like sistas do
     aint nothin like a sista when
     she's sharing life with you
     no other color woman can compete
     black man, only a sista
     will make your life complete
