    Did you just say you was out looking for Mr. no good again
    When you gone learn that's as foolish as homemade sin
    Woman to woman I'm going to put some knowledge in your ear
    And I speak to you with complete boldness for I have no fear
    Never one to step back from an opportune to educate
    And cause someone's cloud of ignorance to dissipate
    To dispel the many, many myths and disillusions
    That seems to leave you with so much confusion
    I feel that there are some issues we must address
    Some misconceptions that we must put to rest
    First and foremost you gotta learn your wealth honey
    And ain't even talking about no stinking money
    When you gone learn you the daughter of royalty
    And that you deserve some faithfulness and loyalty
    I don't care what shape, size, or color you're are golden
    And need to stop walking around like you beholden
    Beholden to some sorry good for nothing brother
    Who's only goal is to make another single mother
    And can't even support his numerous seed
    Please tell me child how he fulfills your need
    Woman to woman you gotta learn to love self
    and stop putting your esteem on a top shelf
    Please put your skirt down and pick up a book
    How about for once trying the educated look
    Before you think that I'm being to tough on you
    I want you to know you important to my survival too
    For us to get anywhere as a people I need you on board
    I need you to do your appointed part to set us forward
    I come at you in love for you are part of the whole
    And without you we will never reach our collective goal
    So women to women I say to you get it together please
    For we all are waiting on you, down on bended knees

    Woman to woman, thanks for having my back
    I've left that man alone, and now my life's on track
    It took me awhile to see past his bull
    And realize his behind was playing me for a fool
    Thank you, my sister, for never giving up on me
    For letting me make my mistakes, that's how it should be
    You were never too far behind to catch me if I fell
    And always there to listen when i called you on the cell
    Woman to woman, my homegirl, my friend
    If it weren't for you i'd be at wit's end
    And sister to sister, you may have never been told
    But your gift of friendship is a rare thing to behold
    You know you my girl through and through and for real
    Girl we so tight we got a tamper-proof seal
    And I could never ever, ever never thank you enough
    For being down for me when shi!t got rough
    But know I'm gonna be there, ride or die
    To share your laughter or dry your tears when you cry
    Woman to woman, for you i have so much love
    And I know thank you is really not enough
    But if you ever need anything, just call my name
    And I'll bend over backwards to treat you the same.
