Work That

Most of the time I do relatively well keeping myself motivated, I make sure I get enough rest and I try to eat right (LOL, I did say for the most part, right?). Sometimes I read little motivational poems and sayings and sometimes I blast the music. One song in particular really gets me pumped and so I thought I would share it with all my beautiful HIV + women who are never ashamed of what life did to you. The artist is MARY J. Blige and the song--if you haven’t already guessed--is Work That. I’m sure some of you already know the song and the artist but have you truly listened to the words? This song has become my theme song, thank you Mary J! Here is the link to the song and the words Binary Data Mary J Blige Ft Busta Rhymes - Work That (NEW OFFICIAL RMX) From the album Growing Pains Written By: Neff-U, Mary J. Blige, Sean Garret Work your thing out (out, out) (4 X) There’s so many you girls I hear you been running From the beautiful queen that you can be becommin You can look in my palm and see the storm coming Read the book of my life and see I’ve overcome it Just because the length of your hair ain't long And they often criticize you for your skin tone Gone hold your head high cause you a pretty woman Get your run way stride honed and keep it going Girl, live your life I just wanna be myself Don't sweat girl be yourself Follow me, follow me, follow me Girl be yourself that’s why I be myself (And I grew to love it) (Work your thing out...) Let em get mad They gon’ hate any way Don't you get that Doesn't matter if you go along with their plan They'll never be happy Cause they're not happy with themselves (Ah ah, work what you got...) I'm talking about things that I know (Ah ah, work what you got...) It's okay show yourself some love (Ah ah, work what you got...) Don't worry about who's saying what (It's gonna be fine work what you got) Work what you got Feeling great because the light's on me Celebrating the things that everyone told me Would never happen but God has put his hands on me And ain't a man alive could ever take it from me Workin with what I got I gotta Keep on taking care of myself I wanna live long Ain't never ashamed what life did to me Wasn't afraid to change Cause it was good for me I wanna (I just wanna be myself) I just wanna be (don't sweat girl be yourself) Don't sweat girl (Follow me, follow me, follow me I be myself) Follow me follow me (That’s why I be myself) (And I grew to love it) (Work your thing out) Let em get mad They gonna hate any weight Don't you get that Doesn't matter if you go along with their plan They'll never be happy Cause they're not happy with themselves (Ah ah, work what you got...) I'm talking about things that I know (Ah ah, work what you got...) It's okay show yourself some love (Ah ah, Work what you got) Don't worry about who's saying what (It's gonna be fine work what you got) Work what you got (Work that, work that, work that, don't' hold back just be yourself) Work that work that Work that work that don't hold back Oooh Work ya head girl (work you thing out) Work that job girl Work what you got (Ah ah, work what you got...) I'm talking about things that I know (Ah ah, work what you got...) It's okay show yourself some love (Ah ah Work what you got) Don't worry about who's saying what (It's gonna be fine work what you got) Work what you got (Busta Rhymes) You know i got you mary get your money baby handle yo biz dont worry bout the next person you should be proud of who ya is see life might not always be about diamonds and furs and you not comfortable because your ass is not as big as hers its low life baby im still lovin you after all i love hearin your voice every single time that i call i appreciate your natural self down to the bone and i appreciate what god gave ya everythings ya own and be the woman that i cherish and welcome inside my home a womans chest is smaller but i aint knockin there silicone some chicks go off in deep end until nothing can save em’ from not appreciating themselves and what god gave ya gettin lost walkin around frontin like they a star take time to research to try to figure out who you are and once that gets done it’ll manifest on the surface the only way you can love your self is to love what you got (work that work that work that don't hold back just be yourself) Work it out work it out ladies Work that work that Work that work that don't hold back (Work your thing out) Oooh Work what you got
