my lyricsbox
I can pay my own light bill, baby
Pump my own gas in my own car
I can buy my own shoe collection
I've been blessed thus far
I can kill the spider above my bed
Although it's hard because I'm scared
I can even stain and polyurethane
But some things just don't change
I need you
Sometimes so hard to say
I need you
Some things remain

I can buy my own groceries baby
Get my hair tight, my nails right
I can floss my own bling-bling
Write the the words to the songs I sing
I can even raise the child we'll make
Make sure he's loved and knows what God gave us
I can teach him how to walk and stand
But he needs you to help him be a man
We need you
Sometimes so hard to say
We need you
Some things don't change

I could be congresswoman or a garbage woman
Or police officer or a carpenter
I could be a doctor and a lawyer
Or a mother and a
Good God, woman whatcha done to me
Kind of lover I can be
I could be a computer analyst
The queen with the nappy hair, raising her fist
Or I could be much more and a myraid of this
Hot as the summer
Sweet as the first kiss
And even though I can do all these things
I need you
And even though I can do all these things
We need you
We need you
And even though I can do all these things
I need you
I do I do I do
(And you need us too)
This song is from the album "Live In Paris+" and "Beautifully Human: Words And Sounds, Vol. 2".
