Lyrics

Inner Beauty - A Song for Ced

Written By: Candace Miller

Slim and Tall, he seems to make
all of the fellas mock him when he strolls
His head is high
And nothing can slow his pride
Cause he has it in his head
Momma said...

"Boy You're my pride and joy
You ain't like other Boys
They'll try to turn you around
Cause what you've got
They haven't found"

No one's fool, he keeps his cool
The girls, they giggle as he passes them
He smiles within
Look at him!
