lyrics

Chale Mens
Yo
Beh u dey go the store?
Yep
K I beg if you dey go the store
I wan change the cream wey we dey use
Oh my own good oh
Bright is Right
The bright is right no dey be
E dey be
So I beg carry one bola tub of Milky Way eh
Mek i take kpor ma body well
Aaaah I hear of dat one
No problem
Then the sardine and the gari
Ai cool
Ok

When I 1st saw Jesus
I wanted to be white
When Eminem started rapping
It was very nice
But not so much Vanilla Ice
He lies
When he came out he wanted his eyes
And blonde hair yeah it was very nice
Now I just wan bleach my body like white rice
Ignoring the cries of
What if your skin fries?
For the best skin toner
I go pay any price

The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!
The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!

I want a silk skin
That looks like it's got some milk in
White like Rumplestiltskin
With a little pink in like a chicken
Plucked and ready for broasting
If I were white, the way I'd be boasting
Flexing with my sun lotion
Under an umbrella by the ocean
The potion
Travel round Africa with my NGO
Pat kids on the head for land and gold
Become crowned king of Kintampo
Ride around on my rhino or pet hippo
Learn to drum and dance
Teach to drink and beach
Come in the latter days as a saint and preach
Wrong things about god
And laff coz am right
And stop bathing
Coz blacks only bath to be white

The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!
The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!

And even tho ma sa roff
I can get a deal and be the next asher roth
I'll bleach my skin like vybz cartel
With blue contacts in your eyes as well
To all my ladies tired of hair trade fairs
Tired of tracking weaves and prefer straight hair
Stop telling them Jesus is black of course
We love melanin free skin and flat bottoses

Hm
Hm
Nah
Nah nah nah chale
Hm hm hm hm
Please rewinds this
It's not true
That part

The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!
The only black rappers
Who want to be white
We want to be white
We need to be white
The only black rappers who want to be white
We have to be white
We will be white!

Hmmm
We must tone up
We must tone up
We must tone up
We must tone up up up now
The possibilities are endless once we
Bleach
