    What is it about me that makes your jaws drop,
    Lips smack, head turn back
    Just to see if the rear,
    Matches the grill,
    Watching how I navigate, gives you a thrill.

    Is it my diva smile?
    My Vogue crossed with Triple Five Soul style?
    Maybe it’s because you can tell,
    I’m a strong black woman,
    And represent something.

    No kids in tow,
    I have money in the bank,
    A brain in my head,
    Brand new car; with a full gas tank.

    What is it about me?
    That makes you think,
    That.. Ay’ Ma? Would get my attention,
    Did I forget to mention,
    That my Style,
    My face,
    Stride and Pride,
    Is a reflection of what’s inside.

    A good ride I can get from my car,
    Money from the bank, and Clothes from the store,
    I keep my brains for profit,
    so I’m not giving none to you.

    So before you step to me,
    You better take a step back,
    To see, if we are even on the same track!



    **this was off top the head, one slow day @ work***
    Vibe with me!
