Womanifesto Lyrics

by Jill Scott

Clearly I am not a fat ass
I am active brain
and lip smacking peach deep
sometimes too aggressivein in its honesty
and heart sweet
that loves whole-ly and completely
whom it may choose
whom it ever it may choose
I am not gonna lie and passify
i am arms to hold
I am lips to speak
I am a muthafreaking "G"
Strong legs that stroll off the 33 bus
or out of a money green Phantom comfortably
Knees that bend to pray
Clean Ajax washings
Hair that is thick and soft
Thighs that be-twixt
an amazing all expense grand prize
I am eyes that sing
smile that brightens
touch that rings
and supply euphoric release
I am Grand Dame Queen Beast
I am warm
I am peace
From Roads of Botswana to 23rd street
From the inside third eye
ever watching this wicked wicked system of things
i do see
I am friend to pen
and a lover of strong women
A diamond to Men
I am curious and intersted like children
I welcome the wise to teach
appreciator of my culture
Thick not just from bone dense and eat
I have a rhytm in my ways
and a practice in my seek
and yes i do crave the rhythm of my space
with a man that rejoices in God's Grace
with faith i do hear to listen
two hands that fist
when forced pushes to shove
and your ego won't submit
I am Gifted
I am all of this
and indeed the Shit
Clearly I am not just an ass
