(This one so knocks me out)

Straight Talk from Plain Women

Evangeline made her
own self over in
'65, say she
looked in the mirror
at her face saw it
was pretty (her legs
was always fine and
she'd interrupt a
dude's rap to say how
it was a common
amongst our women

the same thang with her
neck pointin to
its length, its class. And
we dug where she
was comin from specially
that pretty part, how
she carried herself
with style, said go'n girl
so be it

Evangeline made her
self over and who
eva else didn't see
We is her witness.
