Oh so tired of feeling like a fool I was in love with you
a man that didn't respect me he was overpowered by jealousy
I put him first over me it took a while but now I see
I'm the one I need to care for
I'm the one that I should adore
Got dreams & aspirations over tired complications
ladies this is our year, have no fear
you are beautiful and don't need to make love a career

I'm an independent lady
Boy you know that's what I am, I am (That’s what I am baby, that’s what I am)
Treat me like a real woman
Common take me as I am
Take me as I am

I don't need a man to support me
Material things or money
I want love, respect and devotion
a heart deeper than the ocean
If he's truly the one that deserves you
his words should always be true
and that isn't a lot to ask, in fact you shouldn't have to
no no, oh oh

I'm an independent lady
Boy you know that's what I am, I am
Treat me like a real woman
Common take me as I am
Take me as I am

Baby girl aint nothin I wouldn't do for you.. you beautiful from your thoughts to your cuticles.. Got dreams and goals yup you can do em too.. All you need is a little room to move.. 4 and boo, ima give it to you. cuz you deserve it.. Every word and curve close to perfect.. I chose these words because I wanna express.. ..The way I feel I can't keep it in check.. 8 I wanna date for real I see that you get the best.. Don't wanna play the field you sittin me on the bench.. But. I don't mind cuz you on my mind.. Pretty much all the time more than the sun shines.. 12 skin like butter spread yes don't tempt me.. I'm cool with your number one rule gotta respect me.. .Fillin up my cup don't leave me empty.. you
