Video - Lyrics by India-Arie

Verse 1]

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don

Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won

Depend of how the wind blows I might even paint my toes

It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I’m not the average girl from your video

And I ain
’t built like a supermodel

But I learned to love myself unconditionally,

Because I am a queen

I not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what I’m wearing I will always be


Verse 2]

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me

Every freckle on my face is where it
’s suppose to be

And I know my creator didn
’t make no mistakes on me

My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see


Verse 3]

Am I less of a lady if I don
’t where panty hose

My momma said a lady ain
’t what she wears but what she knows

But I’ve drawn the conclusion, it
’s all an illusion

’s the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception,

Something got to change

Now don
’t be offended this is all my opinion

’t nothing that I’m saying law

This is a true confession
Of a life learned lesson
I was sent here to share with y'all

So get in when you fit in

Go on and shine

Clear your mind
’s the time

Put your salt on the shelf

Go on and love yourself

Cause everything
’s gonna be alright



Keep your fancy drink, and your expensive minks
I don
’t need that to have a good time

Keep your expensive cars and your caviar

’s I need is my guitar

Keep your crystal and your pistol
I’d rather have a pretty piece of crystal

’t need you silicone, I prefer my own

What god gave me is just fine
