I'm a little black girl
With a strong head on her shoulders
And a plan to have a good life
Avoiding all of life's boulders

First, while I'm in high school
I'll take all those AP classes
That may seem like nothing now
But later use to my advantage

While I take those AP classes
I'll apply for scholarships
And ignore all of those immatures
Who stare down at my hips

Then, when I'm in college
I'll get the degrees I need
And I'll set my own bar high
Make it hard not to succeed

Finally, after years of college,
And my name's a corporate name
I'll sit back in my office
So proud of who I became
