India.Arie - Brown Skin Lyrics




Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then:oh hey:

Where are your people from? Maybe Mississippi or an Island
Apparently your skin has been kissed by the sun
You make me want a Hershey's kiss, your licorice

Every time I see your lips, it makes me think of honey-coated chocolate
Your kisses are worth more than gold to me
I'll be your almond joy, you'll be my sugar daddy

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then:oh hey:

Every time you come around, something magnetic pulls me and I cant get out
Disoriented, I cant tell my up from down
All I know is that I wanna lay you down

Every time I let you in, abracadabra magic happens as we swim
Higher and higher finally we reach heaven
Come back to earth and then we do it all again
Yeah:..

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then:oh hey:

Skin so brown, lips so round
Baby how can I be down?
Beautiful mahogany, you make me feel like a queen
Tell me what's that thing you do that makes me wanna get next to you, yeah

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then:oh hey:

Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin
I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends
Brown skin, up against my brown skin
Need some every now and then:oh hey:

  4. Neobeta Alpha1

    The Most High loves us black man, he blessed us with true royalty, he gave us our own beautiful nation of women and with them we have a nation. This world is truly evil and everything it hates has to be good and blessed and it has shown it hates us so that means something is very special about us. That true royalty is one of a kind because only The Most High can create royalty and he certainly created the original people ( Us ) from his own image.

  59. black mamba 33

    In 2019 as an "older millennial" at 34, that this song only has 10 million views but Bodak Yellow has 800 plus million views. Says alot on where we are as far as values. I'm not hating on Cardi B's success but damn yall gotta start embracing genuine artistry and real blackness. Think beyond twerking and showing your tits and ass for a change!

  60. Niamh Surtees

    I'm half black and I'm proud of that side of me 😢

  62. P03ticJustice

    When india did it it wasnt celebrated but bey rips her off and now its a cultural phenomenon....i guess they needed a light skin woman to say it. Tired of them being the only spokespersons for the black community

    I dedicate this to CJ. Thankyou for restoring my faith is Black men. After exclusive disappointment, hurt, headaches, and heartaches from my brothers, I decided I wanted nothing to do with it anymore😔. Then I met you. You treated me sooo kind, just like an Angel from heaven. You're funny, cool, and carry yourself so professionally, handsome, positive, big and strong yet polite and soft spoken. I've never personally met any black man like you! 6' 210 lbs of tall sweet, hard, Hershey, Nestle, tootsie roll, Almond Joy, chocolate Sexiness!! (Drooling lol) 😍 I'll never forget our 14 days together. I miss you! Maybe one day our paths will cross again friend! ❤🌹×12
