take up for your queens,
were trying to be overthrown.
theyre laughing and theyre teasing,
their true colors finally shown.
we stand our ground, and stand up for our own.
used to the ridicule,proud of how much weve grown.
support your women,
our dreams and our thoughts.
cause were raising your children
and giving everything weve got.
i know i got deep,
but its been on my mind.
misunderstood, and unnappreciated we stay on our grind.
im not saying that your bad. im not saying that you’re all wrong
im just saying that while we’re trying,
respect black women for staying strong.
