Me'Shell Ndegeocello, "Deuteronomy: Niggerman"

All I ever wanted was a nigger who would be true
All I wanted was a niggerman
All I ever wanted was a nigger who would be true, be good to me
While doin' the evil that niggers do
My view of self was that of a divine ho
Like the ones portrayed on the white man colonized minded rap shows
Oh the afro dizzy act of my blak rebel
I am a woman and to this world I accommodate myself
My place is in my blak man's defiance my nigger divine for his sadness
so well complemented mine

When I look at you so blak and blue
My love for you sad but true

One night on a love high we metamorphasized into
gigantic blak butterflies
And for the first time I saw the god inside
I realized my nigger redefined was the blak man divine and he could take me higher
And the divine woman was what the blak man desired

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat;
for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die (Genesis 2:17)
To them he said I will greatly multiply your pain and your conception;
in pain shall you bring
forth children, and you shall be dependent on your husband
and he shall rule over you (Genesis 3:16)
Then god said, let us make man in our image

Let's go back to the time when the mind and soul were divine faith unquestioned
Mother father god said let us make man in our own image
god was not alone as no one should be
I search for a righteous hand to rule over me

For you are a holy people to the Lord your god; The Lord your god has chosen you to be a beloved people to himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth (Deuteronomy 7:6)

The Lord shall bring a nation against you from afar, from the ends of the earth, as swift as the eagle that flies; a nation whose language you do not understand (Deut. 28:49)

Your sons and daughters shall be given to another people and your eyes shall look on, and you shall grieve over them all the day long and there shall be no might in your hand to do anything (Deut. 28:32)

The fruit of your labors shall a nation that you know not eat up and you shall be wronged and oppressed always (Deut. 28:33)
