We’ve been tanning ourselves for eons & years-
Trying to look darker, through burning & tears!
We permed our hair – we wanted it curly-
Their hair was always a lil’ twirly!
Then rap music we did readily adopt-
It was so awesome we didn’t want it to stop!
Hoop earrings we were soon to ourselves adorn-
The N.G. magazine showed us how they were worn!
Tattoos on our bodies & rings in our nose-
Copying the others is now something we chose!
We’ve expanded our bust line beyond recollection-
To look like the women of darker complexion!
We’ve lowered our pants down below our hips-
And inflated & very much pumped up our lips!
Now we’re enlarging our fannies to round & plump-
Apparently the bigger the better is to be our rump!
We’ve copied, imitated, duplicated & cajoled-
That is the best compliment – if it was just to be told!!
