lyrics

CHORUS
Je Suis Deja Belle 4x

VERSE 1
Qui qui mon cheri
It is I the plus belle

Do I ring a bell
Well get to know me

See I’m that Brown Sugar, Soul Sister
With that Ms. Phat Booty
Even Tony Toni Tone said I
I really love you, I love you Deja
Because I am Deja Belle
I'm already beautiful
Already well
I had them writing songs about me
Before they knew about me
Because I am that protype
Now if you’re looking for that model type
Hollywood might suit you nice
Cause with me

PRE-HOOK:
Can’t fix what ain’t broke
And I don’t see no point in me changing

CHORUS
Je Suis Deja Belle 8x

VERSE 2:
You don’t have dread to be rasta
You don’t have be rasta to be dread
Because I wear kinky locks upon my head
But I pray to Father God instead
Why change what he made in perfection
Pick and probe myself with toxic injections
I rather keep it natural
I rep the brown-eyed girls with dreams
To sing their songs and make it in the magazines
Just as they are
Because

PREHOOK
Can’t fix what ain’t broke
And I don’t see no point in me changing

CHORUS
Je Suis Deja Belle (8x)
