You didn’t come into this world wearing Gucci I reckon you didn’t even know what that was then And did people say you were an ugly child because of it? Just how did spending money like a fool become the trend? Throwing away 500 dollars on a pair of shoes When there are durable look-a-likes for 60 If you think that makes you more of a woman Then, honey, you’re as blind as can be. In the words of India.Arie’s mother, Joyce Simpson, “A lady isn’t what she wears, but what she knows.” A mini skirt isn’t gonna save you When your self-esteem’s reached a whole new low. Forget what other people might say Go money-crazy and you’ll end up broke All because you wanted the latest fashions. The world of spending is no joke. You’re ALREADY good enough And don’t think I don’t know how you feel It’s tough living in a word Where trends are always changing. It’s almost unreal. It’s hard to think that ‘Maybe everyone else is just wrong’ Since those around you seem so fancy But it’s your life and lives aren’t always long (Don't hate me!!) So you’ve got to be what you want to be Do what you want to do Know you’re just as good as they are And know you’re beautiful, too. I hope you get something from this I know thinking this way always helps ME out You're definitely worthy of living This is all I’ve got. Now be proud!
