Beautiful Skin

This song is by Goodie Mob and appears on the album Still Standing (1998).

Original video
Mmm, this particular song right here is dedicated to the black woman
And this don't pertain to all black women, some of yall disrespect y'allselves
'Cause you don't know who you are in the first place
This is out of common respect for all women period
Word up, like this song, yo

I'm quite single and occasionally I mingle
But aside from all the rest, she sparks my interest
No ma'am I don't know you, just offerin the common respect
I feel I owe you

Also, some conversation, companionship, common ground and common sense
There's no such thing as coincidence, and, me finding you here
And I really hate screamin' in yo' ear, so some other time, ok?
I waited a day

Hello this the caller you told from a couple of days ago
You sound tired, forgive me if I call you too late
But what better time to relate mind state?
Where can I begin, hasn't anyone ever told you you got beautiful skin?
You're more than welcome, what do you desire within?

I just wanna be, there's no need to put titles on you and me
Those are limitations, livin' in under our only obligations
Equality, honesty, independence, intelligence
Emotional and devotional, humbly seekin' to hear God when He's speakin'

At one time my mind couldn't conceive
A woman had to dress a certain way to believe
But in the same breath, allow me to say that
If you believe young lady, you wouldn't dress that way, and I

Was attracted to yo' class, I couldn't see all yo' ass
And I was very content, you deserve every compliment, now
Remember our indifferences make up the same, you got to have the game,
Or you ain't gone be able to take care of yourself

And love, when I look at you, I see my reflection
So I offer my love, affection and protection
Shawty, you dead fine, but the bottom line is
You still my sister

Well I said you're my beginning my end
You're my sister, lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines from your beautiful skin

What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can

I met you in Yawnew, saw you again on Marietta, downtown Atlanta
Checkin yo' long legs got me smirkin, fixed me dinner one night
Candles lit, kinda thought you was slick in the beginning
But it turned out you wouldn't lie, looked me in my eye
I listened, sucked it up, pushed on, we made amends
Both sides clicked, true friends. Since then
Years done gone by, brought a baby girl into this world
Made her parents grandfolks, household with no pork
Took care of ye, you, me, when she got put out on the curb
Closer than the skin on the back of my hand, through the thick and thin
We can win, beautiful black skin

Well, I said you're my beginning, my end
You're my sister, lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines for your beautiful skin

What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can

No need to compete with the music loud, or StaffsCo
But on the scale of 1 to 10 you a 12
I chose her over jail and hell
Originally from A-T-L

Compatible souls come together under bad weather
To discuss distrust amongst the so-called good in every woman
How I wish this was true, I deal with facts only
Already done cloned me

While I sing the blues with there's only one God that's watchin over our every step
I need His help when I'm walkin, lookin for the right female, I can't tell sometimes
They tell me the devil's comin' humble in his approach
Spontaneous quick to game, he tried to not eat of a girl fallin for the okay
Let the pistol smoke the one who lived by, die by
Is horror of how a relationship can be

I rolls the dice, takin' the chance, and crappin out
Like today, Bun, I lost one over the best hips
Natural thick lips, no animal fat implants, wide load
Just started working at the airport

Nineteen years old
Worth more her weight in gold
But it was all my fault, so don't cry, I was stained
If down the line I want you back and the feelin' ain't mutual
Just promise me you'll find a new man that's bout some business
Hope she find what her was lookin' for, like a Treat or Martin
I wanted to be more than friends
Beautiful black skin

Well, I said you're my beginning my end
You're my sister, lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines for your beautiful skin

What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can

Said you're my beginning my end
You're my sister, lover and friend
God is your light from within
It shines for your beautiful skin

What they say 'bout you ain't true
There's no me if there is no you
I hope that you understand
You got to respect yourself before I can

I'm runnin outta breath in here
Heh heh
