It's About Soul

lyrics

Ain't it hard for a girl
livin' in this world

Born and bred
misled
this shit's gettin' to my head
gettin' to my head

How are we supposed to be
when all we see
is contradictory
contradictory

It ain't about my legs
it ain't about my thighs
it ain't about those magazines poisoning our minds
it ain't about my hair
it ain't about my clothes
Lemme tell you what it's all about
It's about soul

Always tryin' to fit in
to my jeans
gotta be thin

First it's boobs
then it's ass
show some skin
but keep it classy

Curves are in
curves are out
you just can't win
what's this all about
what's it all about

It ain't about my legs
it ain't about my thighs
it ain't about those magazines poisoning our minds
it ain't about my hair
it ain't about my clothes
Lemme tell you what it's all about
It's about soul

I'm all over that soul
and I'm superbad
nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

How are we supposed to feel
tryin' to measure up to some ideal
come on girls let's celebrate
we are real
got sex appeal
hoist yourselves up
get on top
take the wheel
you're smokin' hot

It ain't about my legs
it ain't about my thighs
it ain't about those magazines sellin' us their dirty lies
it ain't about my hair
it ain't about my clothes
Lemme tell you what it's all about
It's about soul

(Outro chorus)
