QUEEN LATIFAH - Big, Blonde And Beautiful

rate me

Once upon a time

Girl I was just like you

Never let my extra large

Largesse shine through

Hair was brown and nappy

Never had no fun

I hid under a bushel

Which is easier said than done!

Then one day my grandma

Who was big and stout

She said you gotta love yourself

From inside out

And just as soon as I learned

How to strut my funky stuff

I found out that the world at large

Can't get enough so...

Bring on that pecan pie

Pour some sugar on it

Sugar don't be shy

Scoop me up a mess

Of that chocolate swirl

Don't be stingy,

I'm a growing girl

I offer big love

With no apology

How can I deny the world

The most of me

I am not afraid

To throw my weight around

Pound by pound by pound

Because I'm

Big, blonde and beautiful

There is nothin' 'bout me

That's unsuitable

No one wants a meal

That only offers the least

When girl we're servin' up

The whole damn feast

Slice off a piece

Of that hog head cheese

Then take a look inside

My book of recipes

Now, don't you sniff around

For something fluffy and light

I need a man who brings

A man-size... Appetite

I'll use a pinch of sugar

And a dash of spice

I'll let ya lick the spoon

Because it tastes so nice

I'll keep it in my oven

'Til it's good and hot

Keep on stirring til it hits the spot

Because I'm...

Big, blonde and beautiful

And Edna girl, you're lookin' so


Why sit in the bleachers

Timid and afraid

When Edna,

You can be your own parade!

So? How 'bout it, Mama?

Well, I am big, I am blonde... ish, and if you say

I'm beautiful, I guess I'm beautiful. OK, I'll do it!


Look out old Baltimore

We're marching in

'And we ain't shufflin'

Through that old back door

And Tracy, I will join the fight

If I can keep up this pace

And girls, I'll be right at your side

If I can find some space

So you can

Hold your head up

Just as big as ya please

You know they'll hear me knockin'

With the two of these!

Tomorrow, side by side

We'll show the world what's right

Looks like I'm touchin' up my roots tonight!

Then we'll be

Big, blonde and beautiful

It's time to face the fact

It's irrefutable

Can't ya hear that rumbling?

That's our hunger to be free

It's time to fin'ly taste


On mother/daughter day

Where thin is in,

We're white as wool

Well ladies, big is back!

And as for black, it's...

... Beautiful!

All shapes and sizes, follow me

Let's bust their chops!

Quick, cali the cops!

We're gonna dance our way to victory!

And get us on TV!

2... 4... 6... 8... TV'S got to integrate!

Stay away! This isn't Negro Day!

You bet I'm big!

This blond is gray!

Tracy, this was beautiful!

Big, blonde, and beautiful leads the way!

No one's getting on TV today!
