Dis Ma Hair? Aron Ranen's Black Hair Documentary Part One

Dis Ma Hair
i don’t have my own hair
i don’t know why
but it ain’t my own
what is natural to me
dis ma hair
i can do what i please
boy friend/girl friend
dis ma hair
i do this fa me not fa you
don’t give a fuck bout you
dis ma hair
I can weave it
Glue it
Lock it
Stock it
Conk it
Gerri curl it
Marcel it
Dis ma hair
Leave me lone
Dis ma hair
Blond wig cocked ace-duce
Dis ma hair
You can suck me fuck me
But dis ma hair
Call me Korean
Ghetto fab
Call me from the dead
But dis ma hair.
