Tuff Black Sista

I'm a tuff black sista

Do you understand

I stand on my own 2 feet

I don't need a man

I fight for my rights

I don't back down

Cause I'm a tuff black sista

You'll see me around

Why am I judged by my skin

Why do I have to walk like him

Why can't I just be free

I'm really tired of being beat

When will the day come when I'm free

I'm sick of being that man's slave

I'm a tuff black sista

One day I'll be free

I'm a tuff black sista

Watch out for me.
