Ciara & Ester Dean – Rooted lyrics

Better than rooted now
Mi seeds we did now
Mi rooted in the melanin

Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

All my songs come with melanin
Got the heart, got the soul like Harriet
A queen since she born, that was evident
That’s evidence, of black excellence
I can tell a good dog when I’m pettin’ ’em
Know that if I have his tribe, he protectin’ ’em
Mother of a child and God I invest in ’em
Nutritionin’, brown milkin’ em (Brown milkin’ ’em)

Young Rosa, young Luther keep marchin’ (Yeah, yeah)
Flood gates comin’ open don’t stop ’em
I know that life it ain’t easy (Oh-oh, oh)
Your life it matters, believe me (Oh-oh, oh)
Rule out the fakes and the frauds
They hide it behind a facade

Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

All my rules stay embedded in
Hard work, let ’em know, ain’t no trainin’ in
Poppin’ off the charts, that’s a better win
Then poppin’ off in the streets, ain’t no checkin’ it
I can tell a good dog when I’m pettin’ ’em
Know that if I have his tribe, he protectin’ ’em
Mother of a child and God I invest in ’em
Nutritionin’, brown milkin’ em (Brown milkin’ ’em)

Young Rosa, young Luther keep marchin’ (Yeah, yeah)
Flood gates comin’ open but no it don’t stop ’em
I know that life it ain’t easy (Oh-oh, oh)
Your life it matters, believe me (Oh-oh, oh)
Rule out the fakes and the frauds
They hide it behind a facade

Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted

Watch out boy
You think you can pull up out of my stems
Nah, mi rooted in the soil
Mi rooted in the melanin

Young girl stay rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
Can’t pull the hood out me, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
I done plant my seeds now I’m rooted
Brown skin poppin’, I’m rooted
ATL bred, I’m rooted
Rooted, nappy head rooted
