lyrics

(Chorus: LaToiya Williams)

Baby baby, please don’t stop

(Repeat x 4)

(Verse 1)

Aye yo, check the scene, so serene
Lounging in my rest
No one here to impress but a great King, no less
Working hard to keep the throne secure
And the homeland pure
Them haters won’t trespass for sure
And Floe’s position, of the utmost respect
So the third eye stays wide to see that respect reflect
I’m sick of hearing stories about that lost black girl
But what’s up with the sistas in the entertainment world
Overall they doing good, overall they looking good
Overall they making good, over all of Hollywood
Young and old, and while very few find gold
Most struggle as the job search turns cold shoulder
No choice but to get bolder
And your comfort zone’s over there somewhere
But you get closer to stardom and fame
But don’t change your original aim
Conquer the game

(Chorus x 4)

(Verse 2)

You see, Regina King stays queen
Nia Long stays strong
While Paula Jai Parker stays getting her groove on
Bucky naked
Sanaa Lathan’s getting the shine
But it’s an unfair grind for her limited spot time
Love and Basketball to Nip Tuck
Better known to Edgar Allen Floe as Tit Fuck
Halle opened up the door and opportunity called you
But it’s actually the back door to the Monster’s Ballroom
Tom, Dick, and Harry be loving some Halle Berry
Thinking they can smash at will
Reminds me of when Pam Grier was blaxploited
Drop your top, cop a feel
Play your cards right, but they don’t show you how to deal
No matter whose shuffling, she’s still struggling
She’s still juggling Code of Ethics plus pride
Keep your respect level high, continue to strive
‘cause you got strong brothas on your side

(Chorus x 4)

(Bridge: LaToiya Williams)

Keep on believing, hey, don’t stop
I know it gets hard sometimes, don’t stop
Don’t, please

(Verse 3)

Can’t you picture it now
See the capacity crowd
See the land of smiles
Where she never asks to be proud
See the little ones keeping their head high
Beautiful eyes can fly skyward
Opened up by my words
But you’re the one who helped clear the path
Now the whole world can recognize and feel the wrath
You see it right
Preserve the picture so it’ll last
Yo we gotta build this All-Star Cast

(Chorus x 8)

Never give up, hold on to your dreams

(Repeat with Chorus)

(End)
