I woke up hearing this song and I thought of homelessness and hunger. I thought, “such bullshit! We have food for everyone.” I thought of women with afros. I thought of the Black Panther Party, of Nina Simone. I thought of freedom, I thought of pain, I thought of detachment from the material. I thought of sunshine. I thought of moons. I thought of pride and egos. I thought of humility. I thought of struggle, of dilapidation and decay. I thought of travel. I thought of facades and The Pharcyde. I thought of heartbeats. I thought of people selling their souls. I thought of the things we do for money. I thought of marijuana and mushrooms. I thought of historically Black Colleges and Universities. I thought of children who don’t get enough hugs and kisses and attention. I thought of airplanes soaring through clouds. I thought of religion. I thought of Farrakhan, and then of Obama. I thought of Kush people. I thought of love… and then I turned to him and said, “hey, I thought of You.”
We can solve our problems together. Let go. Let love! I know he’s got my back. He helps me help her. Her, is me, an Egyptian Gypsy. Peace and love to the people who want to get free. For the fearless people who say yes, to the spirit, and no to the flesh. If you want me, prove it. If you love me, show it.
Check out that super dope ankh earring she has on @0.33! Amazing!
♥ Egyptian GYPsy LOVE ♥
La da dee la dee da!
♥ The lyrics to Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters are very moving! ♥
She wakes up early every morning
Just to do her hair now
Because she cares ya’ll
Her day oh wouldn’t be right
Without her make up
She’s never without her makeup
She’s just like you and me
But she’s homeless, she’s homeless
As she stands there singing for money…
Peace and blessings manifest with every lesson learned,
I am Kush
This was one of my favorites. I remember the sounds of house music taking hold. Being in the South, we could only admire from afar, but MTV had a special on house music back in the 80’s that made the difference for me and my brother. Girl I’ll House You was our jam!
