I'm Not My Hair

Is that India? What happened to her hair?

Da da da da da

(Verse 1)
Little girl with the press and curls
Age 8 I got a jerry curl
13 and I got a relaxer
I was the source of so much laughter
15 when it all broke off
18 when I went all natural
February 2002
I went on and did what I had to do

Cuz it was time to change my life
To become the woman that I am inside
97 dread locs all grown
I looked in the mirror for the first time and saw that (hey)

I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations (no)
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am the soul that lives within

What she do to her?
I don't know; it look crazy!
I like it.
I might do that.
I wouldn't go that far.

(Verse 2)
Good hair means curls and waves.
Bad hair means you look like a slave
At the turn of the century
Its time for us to redefine who we be
You can shave it off like an African beauty
Got in on "loc" like Bob Marley
You can rock it straight like Oprah Winfrey
It's not what's on your head, it's what's underneath (say hey)

I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations (no)
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am the soul that lives within

Does the way I wear my hair make me a better person
Does the way I wear my hair make me a better friend
Does the way I wear my hair determine my integrity
Expressing my creativity

(Verse 3)
Breast cancer and chemotherapy
Took away her crown and glory
She promised God if she was to survive
She would enjoy everyday of her life
On national television her diamond eyes are sparkling
Baldheaded like a full moon shining
Singing out to the whole wide world like hey

I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am not your expectations (no)
I am not my hair
I am not this skin
I am the soul that lives within

If I wanna shave it close or I wanna rock locs
That don't take a bit away from this soul that I got

If I wanna wear it braided all down my back
I don't see nothing wrong with that

Eu Não Sou Meu Cabelo

Aquela é a India? O que aconteceu com o cabelo dela?

Da da da da da

{Verso 1}
Garotinha com cabelo muito frisado
Com oito anos eu adquiri um cacho Jheri
Aos treze eu relaxei
Eu era uma fonte de risadas
Aos quinze quando tudo aconteceu
Aos dezoito foi tudo natural
Fevereiro de 2002
Eu fui e fiz o que eu tinha que fazer

Porque estava na hora de mudar minha vida
Se tornar a mulher que está dentro de mim
Em noventa e sete coloquei todo rastafári
Eu olhei no espelho pela primeira vez e eu vi que (hey)

Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou esta pele
Eu não sou suas expectativas no no
Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou está pele
Aqui dentro vive uma alma

O que ela fez com o cabelo dela?
Eu não sei isso parece loucura
Eu gostei disso.
Eu podia fazer isso.
Eu não iria tão longe.

[Verso 2]
Cabelo bom significa cachos e ondulados
Cabelo ruim significa você parecer como um escravo
A volta do século
É tempo para nós definirmos quem nos somos
Você pode raspar isso fora como é linda a América do sul
Ou entre em uma fechadura como Bob Marley
Você pode balançar isso diretamente como Oprah Winfrey
Só que isso não esta em sua cabeça olhe o que esta abaixo {diga hey}

Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou esta pele
Eu não sou suas expectativas no no
Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou está pele
Aqui dentro vive uma alma

Quer dizer que a maneira que uso meu cabelo me faz uma pessoa melhor?
Quer dizer que a maneira que uso meu cabelo me faz uma amiga melhor?
Quer dizer que a maneira que uso meu cabelo determina minha integridade?
Eu estou expressando minha criatividade

[Verso 3]
Enfrente Câncer e Quimioterapia
Tire a coroa e a gloria dela
Ela promete a deus que se ela sobreviver
Ela gostaria de se divertir todos os dias de sua vida
Na televisão nacional os olhos de diamante dela estão brilhando
Cabeça calva como uma lua cheia de lustrar
Cantando alto para o mundo inteiro ouvir hey

Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou esta pele
Eu não sou suas expectativas no no
Eu não sou meu cabelo
Eu não sou está pele
Aqui dentro vive uma alma

Se eu quero raspar isso ou se eu quero balançar fechaduras
Isso não sai um pouco fora da alma que eu adquiri

Se eu quiser trançar isso tudo abaixo das minhas costas
Eu não vejo nada errado com isso
