    Remeniscent of when
    momma used
    to wash my hair on
    Satday
    grease ma scalp
    pullin me up to the stove
    and "pressin" it out...

    "heat hittin grease
    grease hittin scalp"

    Some kinda way
    makin my kinks go to sleep
    memba when she was tired
    and "cornrowed" my wig puttin
    yella,red,blu, and green rubba
    bands on the ends
    sometimes momma used to blow
    it out and I had a dirty red fro

    Two indian braids or
    **** bee hive
    u know that one braid that
    went round and round and round
    but then somebody tole me I was grown
    started doin my hair on ma own...

    I was a big gurl and I memba beggin'
    momma for a "Scury Curl" at first she
    said no you ain't messin up yo hair
    but I begged and begged and she said
    she didn't care
    One year of that egg smelling crap
    I gave it up went back to napps

    Then somebody said I should get a
    "perm" it would be easier to comb
    to manage neglected the part bout
    that **** being addictive....
    all the money I done spent on
    touch ups, wash and sets I could
    go on but I digress

    So I have decided to go back
    to being me
    10000000000000000000000% "N A P P Y"
