you wouldn’t date a black girl lyrics – aisha

intro chorus:

you’re famous now
you’ve made it
you know the game
and you’ve played it
but black people helped bring you into this world
so why don’t i ever see you with a black girl
(a pause in the record so you can hear a pin drop)
no i don’t hate you
and no i don’t want to date you
but it seems to me
and many in this world
that you just wouldn’t date a black girl

verse 1:

let alone marry one
carry one to the alter
but in your own private world
you’re the rock of gibraltar
but that rock is crumbling fast
denying your past
now i agree that love knows no color
and that we should all love each other
and you say that’s true
but you’re never with anyone that looks like you

repeat (intro) chorus

verse 2:

i don’t have a color preference
color is not my point of reference
but it is for you
and you know it too
if the one you love is black
and you are white
do what’s right
and marry them for life
it takes character to
see it through
the incentive to love you
for who you are
not because you’re a star

rap:

no, i’m not hating
and this song isn’t about interracial dating
first of all let me clear the air
if it weren’t for interracial relationships i wouldn’t be here
my grandparents weren’t the same color
but with them they really loved each other
as with all the interracial relationships of my family and friends
love is always the message they send
and that’s real
but with you that’s not the deal
this song is about famous black men like you
and all the discriminatory things you do
once you become known
you feel you’ve outgrown
your own race
and are too much for this place
i’d date a person regardless of their color
but you date a person because of their color
one after another
they’re never black
so please tell me why is that
i mean, not even a token negro
and what about me
i’m as cute as can be
are you trying to tell me you don’t like me
(i’m not vain, really)
it’s because i’m black
and ironically you’re black too
but somehow that just doesn’t matter to you
and that’s sad
do you really think being black is that bad
you distance yourself from the black community
under the guise of racial unity
you say you love everyone
but you don’t
you don’t love your own race
or yourself
you actually think you’re something else
hey, you know what they say
walks like a duck…

chorus:

black people helped bring you into this world
so why don’t i ever see you with a black girl
(now for a pause in the record so you can hear a pin drop)
no i don’t hate you
and no i don’t want to date you
but it seems to me
and many in this world
that you just wouldn’t date a black girl
black girl
