Free Your Mind

  • I wear tight clothing and high heel shoes
    It doesn't mean that I'm a prostitute
    I like rap music wear hip hop clothes
    That doesn't mean that I'm sellin' dope
    Oh please forgive me, for having straight hair
    It doesn't mean there's another blood in my heirs
    I might date another race or color
    Doesn't mean I don't like my strong black brothers

    Why oh why must it be this way
    Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow.
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow

    So I'm a sistah
    Buy things with cash
    That really doesn't mean that all my credit's bad, oooh
    So why dispute me and waste my time
    Because you really think the price is high for me
    I can't look without being watched, no
    You rang my buy before I made up my mind, ow!
    Oh now attitude, why even bother
    I can't change your mind, you can't change my colour

    Why oh why must it be this way?
    Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind

    Why oh why must it be this way?
    Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
    Free your mind and the rest will follow
    Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
