"Video" by India Arie

Alright you guys, I found this new song that I'm absolutely crazy about! I couldnt figure out how to download the song onto the blog without dowloading the whole music video, so when you first play it, follow along with the lyrics as you listen instead of watching the Video. The lyrics are amazing! I've also put in bold the specific parts of the lyrics that I love. Oh yeah, and the song is titled "Video" by India Arie. Enjoy!!!!

"Video" Lyrics

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I dont

Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I wont

Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes

It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

Im not the average girl from your video

And I aint built like a supermodel

But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

Im not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what Im wearing I will always be india aria (insert your own name where her's is!)

When I look in the mirror the only one there is me

Every freckle on my face is where its supposed to be

And I know our creator didnt make no mistakes on me

My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; Im lovin what I see

Im not the average girl from your video

And I aint built like a supermodel

But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

Im not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what Im wearing I will always be india aria

Am I less of a lady if I dont wear pantyhose?

My mama said a lady aint what she wears but, what she knows

But, Ive drawn a conclusion, its all an illusion, confusions the name of the game

A misconception, a vast deception

Somethings gotta change

Dont be offended this is all my opinion

Aint nothing that Im sayin law

This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share wit

Yall

So get in where you fit in go on and shine

Free your mind, nows the time

Put your salt on the shelf

Go on and love yourself

cuz everythings gonna be all right

Im not the average girl from your video

And I aint built like a supermodel

But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

Im not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what Im wearing I will always be india aria

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks

I dont need that to have a good time

Keep your expensive car and your caviar

All I need is my guitar

Keep your crisp style and your pistol

Id rather have a pretty piece of crystal

Dont need your silicon I prefer my own

What God gave me is just fine

Im not the average girl from your video

And I aint built like a supermodel

But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

Im not the average girl from your video

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what Im wearing I will always be india aria

I've thought of passing that song onto you before! The song has been around a while, and I've always loved the lyrics. Ever notice how words just sound better when they are sung in a song? Reading her lyrics would be one thing- but hearing her sing them make all the difference. Its a good song to drive to in the car! :) Love you to pieces emmy-lou.
