[Chevy P aka Smoke] Its ya boy Chevy P babe... Listen [Chevy P aka Smoke] I remember as a kid back.. in the days I got picked on kicked at... shit on spit at Get gone get back (gone Smoke) get away Havin a dark pigmentation was hard then to make friends Felt like God didn't take his time with me He musta made me late night tired and sleepy Cause life wasn't easy they dogged me Said that I was so dark the bet I could sweat coffee And peepee sweet tea and spit oil Say when ashy I lotion down in Armor All Made me feel like a loser really lame Because of my complexion nobody would include me in games Not even tag never "it" nobody would touch me Nope no girlfriends cause shawties thought I was ugly Through all the jokes and laughs pokes and stabs blows and jabs Hopin sad mopin mad before the scabs nobody told me that... [Hook w/ 2Pac sample from "Keep Ya Head Up"] The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots (this song is to all the dark skinned) The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice I say The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice I say The blacker the berry t-the blacker the berry The blacker the blacker the blacker the blacker [Chevy P aka Smoke] I ain't have Marvin Gaye to sing to me And make me feel like black was the thing to be Until Big Daddy Kane I was so glad he came Made me feel good about bein black again cause We was at the bottom of the market (Al B.) made (Sure) it was a problem to be dark skinned Until (Wesley Sniped) him In with the darkies out with the light skinned Now we got Tyrese Taye and Tyson Mekhi Phife in every movie ya likin Blade he remind me of a modern day Panther While Batman (hides behind a mask) like a (Klansman) We have to achieve... ('Caine's killin us) Like it killed the second son of Adam and Eve Ya palm is white and spread fist still black and tightly now Slappin five was cool but rather ya ball ya fist and give me pound 'cause [Hook] [Chevy P aka Smoke] Tiger Woods say he ain't black... whatever They say Michael Jackson ain't white... whatever And Venus and Serena done beat mo white girls Than O.J. and Rick James put together Now Michael Vick's the new black hero Bet John Madden ain't see it comin (saw a quarterback as a negro) Jordan he can't hide it he look like an African Tribal leader If you can lighten him then you can brighten me up Now don't get me wrong and think I'm prejudiced Listenin to this song.. I'm not racist As a matter of fact shout out to Jamie Lori and Chad My white friends from Lee County to Bladecliff Just bein dark is it what's like bein white in the audience At a black comedy show I Was guaranteed to get cracked on and joked out Now this ugly duckling is a swan I know now [Hook] It's the F-be-I [music to fade]
