I’ve been called a nigger in the summer Then beaner until late fall But winter til mid spring No one guesses wtf I am at all!
Cause I’m a shady bitch Shapeshifting witch I am rainbow colored inside and out People always try to figure me out
They ask if I’m Hawaiian Middle Eastern Mexican part Korean or a quarter Jew (Nice hair)
I say no I’m not but thanks a lot I really enjoy their food
Only In the shade though, cause I’m a bitch (Bitch) A shade privileged bitch I am rainbow colored inside and out Don’t even try to figure me out
Cause I’m black I’m white I’m native I might just be a smidge or two of something else (Who knows) But one things for sure my heart is pure I’m just trying to be myself
But then I get called a nigger in the summer And beaner through late fall But I never get called a wetback Because I’m too light eloquent and tall
Oh Yes I said it! Winter through spring Don’t you forget it I could pass for half anything!
I’m so shady Shapeshifting and rainbow colored I could be anybody’s Half sister cousin or mother
But I keep my ass out of the sun To minimize my exposure to racism
Ain’t that some shit?
I said ain’t that some shit?
I am such a shady
Yeah I’m such a shady bitch
