Lyrics

That Chick (Bitch)

Written By: Renea L. Moss

I am that bitch, that whore
That slut you talk about
You say its just a song
Disrespect me from your mouth
You wonder why the world treats me like they do

But if you can’t respect me
What do you expect them to do?

My Queen, My Queen
My Beautiful Queen
Is what you call me
Yet a pheasant is how you treat me
Condemn me, disrespect me
Dirty words, misdeeds
But wanting me to believe, no dis believe
The things I see
All the things I’ve heard
Constantly demeaning
On the radio
In the videos
Instead of putting me high
You’re placing me low
To get the green
You have traded and degraded
your mother, your sister, your cousin
Your whole family

But how can you tell your son
He’s a prince
If you’ve just labeled
The woman whose given him birth
Something that is lower the dredges of the earth
How can you tell your wife
The woman who you have pledged your life
That you would turn against her, her girls
and your precious seed
Just to make sure your new song stays in heavy rotation
But even a dog protects his breed

I AM
That bitch, that whore
That slut you talk about
You say its just a song
Disrespect me from your mouth
You wonder why the world treats me like they do

But if you can’t respect me
What do you expect them to do?

My King, My King,
You say all is not what it seems
But do I believe the words that you say in front of my face
Or the ones that are blasted constantly from the airwaves
For if all the words come from your mouth,
How can I believe one thing while throwing the others out
And know that I know the words that are said
Don’t define me
But they sure make it hard for me
For the words that you speak
Haunts me
makes me wonder
When the day will come
That because you chose
To speak these words continuously
Over slick beat
While people bob their heads
Not realizing how deep
You have brought down the integrity
Of a woman
Because the words you told me
were just a song, a beat
slips in a living nightmare of a reality
for the day that a man calls your daughter
a bitch and she just smiles and shrugs it off
for how can she get mad when her daddy started this
and she becomes

That bitch, that whore
That slut you talk about
You say its just a song
Disrespect her with your mouth
You wonder why the world treats her like they do

But if you can’t respect women
What do you expect your daughter to do?

My people, my people
This stuff is beneath you
Allowing the industry
To determine how people see you
Stop blaming the stations for the songs you are making
But if you don’t write it
If you don’t record it
The radio stations can’t play it
For if you are willing to trade
What you consider the basis
Of who you really are
The people who help make you are star
For fifteen minutes of fame
Calling your people out their name
Well remember karma is the same
For animals know how to be tamed
But will strike out
When you threaten their flock
But you can’t even be compared to the beast
For even they protect their seed
Even a dog protects his own breed
But in your need and your greed
You have become the bitch you talk about

I AM
That bitch, that whore
That slut you talk about
You say its just a song
Disrespect me from your mouth
You wonder why the world treats me like they do

But if you can’t respect me
What do you expect them to do?
