[ti:I am not my hair]
[00:01.61]Verse 1: Akon]
[00:04.00]Konvict Music uh huh
[00:10.57]See I can kinda recall a lil ways back
[00:14.82]Small tryin to ball always been black
[00:17.31]And my hair I tried it all I even went flat
[00:19.82]Had a gummy curled on top and all that crap (o oh)
[00:22.88]Just tryin to be appreciated
[00:24.84]Nappy headed brothers never had no ladies
[00:27.00]Then I hit the barber shop real quick
[00:29.47]Had a mini lil twist and it drove her crazy (crazy)
[00:32.62]Then I couldn't get no job
[00:34.57]Cuz corporate wouldn't hire no dreadlocks
[00:36.98]Then I thought about my dogs on the block
[00:39.46]Kinda understand why they chose to steal and rob
[00:42.06]Was it the hair that got me this far?
[00:44.26]All these girls these cribs these cars?
[00:46.79]I hate to say it but it seem so flawed
[00:49.27]Success didn't come til I cut it all off
[Verse 2: India.Arie]
[00:52.04]Little girl with the press and curl
[00:53.92]Age eight I got a Jheri curl
[00:56.56]Thirteen I got a relaxer
[00:59.36]I was a source of so much laughter
[01:01.56]At fifteen when it all broke off
[01:03.94]Eighteen and I went all natural
[01:06.34]February two thousand and two
[01:08.55]I went on and did
[01:11.11]What I had to do
[01:12.01]Because it was time to change my life
[01:13.60]To become the woman that I am inside
[01:15.85]Ninety-seven dreadlocks all gone
[01:18.71]I looked in the mirror
[01:20.33]For the first time and saw that HEY....
[01:22.21]I am not my hair
[01:24.74]I am not this skin
[01:27.07]I am not your expectations no no
[01:30.91]I am not my hair
[01:33.86]I am not this skin
[01:36.42]I am a soul that lives within
[Verse 3: India.Arie]
[01:40.60]Good hair means curls and waves
[01:42.88]Bad hair means you look like a slave
[01:45.59]At the turn of the century
[01:47.81]It's time for us to redefine who we be
[01:50.07]You can shave it off
[01:51.73]Like a South African beauty
[01:52.88]Or get in on lock
[01:53.99]Like Bob Marley
[01:55.13]You can rock it straight
[01:56.51]Like Oprah Winfrey
[01:57.88]If its not what's on your head
[01:59.24]Its what's underneath and say HEY....
[Verse 4: Akon]
[02:19.68]Who cares if you dont like that
[02:21.60]With nothin to lose posted with the wave cap
[02:24.41]And the cops wanna harass cuz I got braids
[02:26.63]Ain't see nothin like that in all my days (o oh)
[02:29.28]And you gotta change all this feelings
[02:31.53]They be judging one another by their appearance
[02:33.93]Yes India, i feel ya girl
[02:36.41]Now go 'head talk to the rest of the world cuz...
[02:39.23](Whoa, whoa, whoa)
[02:41.61]Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person?
[02:44.08](Whoa, whoa, whoa)
[02:46.35]Does the way I wear my hair make me a better friend? Oooh
[02:49.34](Whoa, whoa, whoa)
[02:51.01]Does the way I wear my hair determine my integrity?
[02:53.73](Whoa, whoa, whoa)
[02:55.99]I am expressing my creativity..
[02:57.91](Whoa, whoa, whoa)
[Verse 5: India.Arie]
[02:59.57]Breast Cancer and Chemotherapy
[03:01.09]Took away her crown and glory
[03:03.54]She promised God if she was to survive
[03:05.78]She would enjoy everyday of her life ooh
[03:08.62]On national television
[03:10.67]Her diamond eyes are sparkling
[03:13.18]Bald headed like a full moon shining
[03:15.89]Singing out to the whole wide world like HEY...
[Chorus: til fade]
