Lyrics
[
Verse 1]

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don
’t

Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won
’t

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

It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

[
Chorus]
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

India.
Arie

[
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

[
Chorus]

[
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

Confusion
’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

Ain
’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
Now
’s the time

Put your salt on the shelf

Go on and love yourself

Cause everything
’s gonna be alright

[
Chorus]

[
Out]

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

All
’s I need is my guitar


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

Don
’t need you silicone, I prefer my own

What god gave me is just fine


[
Chorus]
