    Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't
    Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't
    Dependin' on how the wind blows, I might even paint my toes
    It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

    I'm not the average girl from your video
    And I ain't built like a supermodel
    But I've learned to love myself unconditionally
    Because I am a queen
    I'm not the average girl from your video
    My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
    No matter what I'm wearing I will always be

    When I look in the mirror, the only one there is me
    Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
    And I know my Creator didn't make no mistakes on me
    My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes, I'm loving what I see


    Am I less of a lady if I don't wear panty hose
    My mama said, "A lady ain't what she wears, but what she knows"
    But I've drawn the conclusion, it's all an illusion
    Confusion's the name of the game
    A misconception, a vast deception
    Something's got to change

    Don't be offended, this is all my opinion
    Ain't nothing that I'm saying law
    This is a true confession of a life learned lesson
    I was sent here to share with y'all
    So get in where you fit, and go on and shine
    Clear your mind, now's the time
    Put your salt on the shelf
    Go on and love yourself
    Cause everything is gonna be alright


    Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks
    I don't need that to have a good time
    Keep your expensive cars and your caviar
    All I need is my guitar
    Keep your Cristal and your pistol
    I'd rather have a pretty piece of crystal
    Don't need your silicone, I prefer my own
    What God gave me is just fine
