    I must admit, that I am
    really a mess in the
    morning, not just the breath
    but hair all over the place maybe
    a hair roller or two might have left
    a trace

    I don’t always look my
    best and I really don’t go
    through a lot of changes
    to beautify myself like the rest
    So do I still past the test

    will you love me the best?

    sometimes I don’t put make up
    on and depending on how I feel
    I just keep it real, I ain’t out
    to woo you trick you into this
    imaginary place where
    maybeline and Cover Girl
    is my secret escape a powder puff
    with a cape. So do I pass the test?

    will you love me the best?

    You see sometimes I feel like heels
    and a cute little dress, sometimes
    I go out looking like I am feeling
    stressed. But when I want to be
    cute “you better no I can” but you
    see I don’t do any of this to get
    or keep a man. I am me and that
    realness is deep within, not the
    length of my hair or the cooper
    cream color of my skin, So do I
    past the test?

    will you love me the best?

    I want you to see what I am really
    made of, and it ain’t make up weave
    or heels “ let me break it down”
    this is the real deal. I was told by
    the old folks years ago, beauty is within
    skin deep and that’s fo sho
    and how you wear your heart is the secret
    and tells you and others apart.
    What’s in you will surely come out
    like sap from an old oak tree, just
    look, listen and watch you will see
    . So do I pass the test?

    will you love me the best?

    So if you stepping this way and
    you plan on staying, you better just
    know I am not pretty all the time
    for the exterior that you visually see
    so let me just ask you this, So do
    I pass the test?

    will you love me the best?
