Black girl don’t cry, they love you again
they’re copying your hair, they wanna live in your skin.
Wear your bamboo earrings proud,
scream ya ghetto ass name out loud,
rock ya long finger nails, with red polish
you look amazing, they’re all astonished.
Black girl don’t cry they’re following the trend,
the center of attention, we’re in the spotlight,
they wanna live our life.
Isn’t this what we wanted, to be accepted
to fit into their world, with no more rejection.
Black girl don’t cry, they love us again.
