THE BARE NAKED BURKAS

Faces...Faces...
I wanna see your faces...

We’re the bare naked burkas with the latest of crazes:
we flash a lot of flesh but we got cloth on our faces
Cuz how they gonna do ya for indecent exposure
When you’re covering your features so that nobody
nobody knows ya?

Say you wanna throw a party but you’re short o the flow
After buying discount snacks and getting beat on the blow
Well you just slip into your burka and go shopping for free
Cuz they’ll be trippin’ in the Tesco cuz they all so PC
So it’s like no one can see you when you’re casing the aisles
All be looking past your shoulder with the fakest of smiles
MeanWHILE – in your burka – such a handy device
You can stash a crate of Jack and still got room for the ice!

While security’s pre-occupied with watching the hoo-dies
You and your burka make the exit with the goo-dies
If they could see your face they’d see you smile with glee
But they can’t – neither can their sucka CCTV!

All you spray can artists if a bust aint your fancy
Fool, get a burka – I just sent one to Banksy!

If you’re dealin with the fuzz and it comes to a battle
well seriously now they shoulda had ‘em in Seattle
Cuz it’s hard to figure out the perpetrator of a prank
running rampant through McDonalds, chucking bricks at the bank
When they’re wearing a disguise and you can barely see their eyes
If you could make a pos-it-ive ID – well I’d be surprised
Activists lissen up
Don’t wanna get jerk-ed?
Next time you get suited up
get booted and burka-ed!

If you’re gonna take up stalkin’ then I highly recommend it
If you wanna be a flasher I can only defend it
If you’re done with a man
and wanna send a friend to end it
Nothin’s better than a burka to assist with the pretendin’
Cuz you gotta admit that in all o these cases
Y’all could never pull it off if I could see your faces..

(faces......faces...faces
I wanna see your faces

Oh I hope they never ban it like they said in the news
It’s a “woman’s choice” to wear it (like some chicks choose a bruise)
If you wanna be a package sealed for just one man
Baby get yerself a burka just as fast as you can
You’ll feel so modest and sweet
tiptoeing down the street
Not just a piece of meat
no trashy eye-candy treat
Not like those western ‘hos
their noses all exposed
tiny skirts
evil flirts
Jezebel as an English Rose
Just wear the sheet
try to ignore the heat
But can you lift up a corner if you got to...
eat?

It’s not the law that gotta change but it’s the mind my sisters
There’s gotta be equality for misses and misters
Don’t care who your god is, if you’re sexy, what your race is
But I love all my sisters and I wanna see your faces!

(faces......faces...faces
I wanna see your faces )

So while I big up the burka for committing a crime
When it’s part of a “tradition” that’s been handed through time
You gotta ask yourself why and what’s the reason behind
Any garment that makes women in-vi-sib-le and blind?

If you peek into the history then I’m sure that you’ll see
That when looking for a hooker in Twelve Hundred BC
Well you wouldn’t want to be hittin’ on the wife of The Man:
She’s insulted - you’re arrested and get tossed in the can
And if you tried to buy a blowie off your neighbour’s witchy daughter
He could legally castrate ya not just feel like he oughta
So for maximum convenience of all those concerned
So the ladies aren’t offended and the John’s don’t get burned
They gave the ladies veils
so men could tell apart:
The virgin, the mother, the nun, and the tart

And that’s the reason for the burka tho I’ll make no excuses
For finding that it has some other really good uses!

We’re the bare naked burkas with the latest of crazes:
we flash a lot of flesh but we got cloth on our faces
Cuz how they gonna do ya for indecent exposure
When you’re covering your features so that nobody knows ya?

We’re the bare naked burkas with the latest of crazes:
we flash a lot of flesh but we got cloth on our faces
Cuz how they gonna do ya for indecent exposure
When you’re covering your features so that nobody knows ya?

Don’t care who your god is, if you’re sexy, what your race is
But I love all my sisters and I want to see your faces!

.........faces......faces...faces

faces......faces...faces.................

I wanna know ya...

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
