Now, that I know who I am
I won't answer when you call me those four letter words.
they could have been three worded
how would i know
I was raised on them words, my daddy did it
my boyfriends did it, and now my babies daddies.
when i looked them up in the dictionary,
thought i belonged to something special
if it's good for some man Webster
gotta be good enough for me,
but you, the new and last man who has come in my life
let me know, I am too beautiful, sacred
to be called any word but beautiful
I knew the word B did not have a ring to it
never did, demeaning
my ex screamed it
when he wanted me or to give him something
somehow i never could do no right!
Scared, when I met you..
didn't want a man to justify me no more
I am the me nobody knows cause
I was afraid everyone saw me like the ex
i left him
now i met you, someone new
new day, new name
you couldn't wouldn't never call me those names
you said the letter b
means hello beautiful.
