Why You Want Fi Bleach Up Your Skin?

by Sophia Sewell-Ba


Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
I said, Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
Cause you look completely disguistin!

Youíre declaring to the world -you hate yourself
And your only salvation is to have light skin.
It seems youíre suffering an identity crisis
Trying so hard to get rid of your blackness

Youíre teaching your children to feel inferior
Of their dark brown skin colour
Instead of installing in them
To be proud of their melanin.

Why you want fi destroy your melanin?
I said, why you want fi destroy your melanin?
Why you want fi destroy your melanin?
Cause beauty comes from deep within.

Your hands expose a great lie
Its  not vertilago
Your  blackness  woníít fade away
Maybe you should address di problem
Of why you want fi poison up yuh skin so


Itís really time for us to all realize
That melanin is our blessin
For it helps to strengthen
Our natural immune system
And protects us from the sun.


Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
Why you want fi bleach up your skin?
Cause you look completely disguistin!

What yuh goin a do
Here comes judgment day
When Mercury poisoning starts licking you
What high price for vanity youíll have to pay

I wonder- 
Why do you hate your skin colour ?
Do you really want skin cancer?
Do you really want to suffer?
Without melanin you canít prosper 
Your contract skin cancer.
Do you really want to die? 
Stop skin- bleaching now 

Remember black is beautiful
The blacker the berry 
The sweeter the juice
And every hue of 
African skin colour is so beautiful.

So, why you want fi bleach up your skin?
