Jamila Woods – Betty (for Boogie) Lyrics

Betty (for Boogie) by Jamila Woods


[Jamila Woods]
I am not your typical girl
Throw away that picture in your head
I am not your typical girl
Work harder, now, work harder
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Throw away that picture in your head
(I come undone)
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Work harder, now, work harder
(I come undone)

[Jamila Woods]
Work, work
Work, work

[Jamila Woods]
Oh, I’m different, I’m a cup of mild sauce
Sweet tongue, but don’t get me in a paper cut
I’ll fight you with my eyes, oh, when they call me shy
They just frightened of what’s in my mind (Mind)
These great-greats won’t let me lie
Midnight eyes wide feels like I’m at the riverside
Great greats come down, they whisper to me quiet
“I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive”

[Jamila Woods]
I am not your typical girl
Throw away that picture in your head
I am not your typical girl
Work harder, now, work harder
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Throw away that picture in your head
(I come undone)
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Work harder, now, work harder
(I come undone)

[Jamila Woods]
Work, work
Work, work

[Jamila Woods]
What is it with you independent men?
It’s always something
Threatening your masculine
Energy, you think it’s fleeting
Nothing you ain’t give to me
I can take away from you now
Let me be, I’m trying to fly, you
Insist on clipping my wings

[Jamila Woods]
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Throw away that picture in your head
(I come undone)
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Work harder, now, work harder
(I come undone)
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Throw away that picture in your head
(I come undone)
I am not your typical girl
(Running from myself)
Work harder, now, work harder
(I come undone)

[Jamila Woods]
Running from myself
I come undone
I wait, I try
