"Braid My Hair" as written by Harold Spencer Lilly Jr and Warryn Campbell....
When you look at me I know
You see a sixteen year-old
Getting his dough
Back and forth to the studios
Hoppin' out of limousines
Rockin' the latest jeans
Jordan's-fresh
T-shirts-new
And even though these things are true
It's hard workin'
Sometimes I just want to
Go home and tell my girl to?

Braid my hair
C'mon and braid my hair
Back in my 'hood
Feeling good
No worries or no cares
Baby use your hands
To make me feel alright
And take away the stress and drama
In my life
While you braid my hair

You may think that I'm complaining
But that's not the case
All I'm sayin'
Is my body gets weak
My mind gets tired
I need sleep
But I gotta keep
Traveling on the road
Doing these shows
New York to Cali
Dallas to Philly
It's the rules of the game
That I chose to play
But sometimes I wanna say?

Braid my hair
C'mon and braid my hair
Back in my 'hood
Feeling good
No worries or no cares
Baby use your hands
To make me feel alright
And take away the stress and drama
In my life
While you braid my hair

Sit me down like you love me
Do it anyway you want
Baby, take it slowly
Front to back, side to side
Crisscross
Get creative wit it
Girl, do your thang
Put it down like you love me
Let your fingers do the walkin'
And your lips do the talkin'
In my ear tell me what I wanna hear
I swear I can't wait for you to?

Braid my hair
C'mon and braid my hair
Back in my 'hood
Feeling good
No worries or no cares
Baby use your hands
To make me feel alright
And take away the stress and drama
In my life
While you braid my hair

    General CommentLyrics don't always need a deep metaphorical meaning, nor do they need a 32-hour decoding. Sometimes a simple song, with a simple meaning, such as this, turns out to be something beautiful, such as this. Most R&B isn't incredibly deep metaphors anyhow, add in the fact that Mario is 15 (I'm guessing, by the lyrics), and he's not bad at all. I like this song.

    General CommentPeople never cease to amaze me. Why even give the interpretation of this song? It's blatantly obvious. That is the whole point. It's not meatn to be metaphorical, it's clearly stated what it is about. Don't get me wrong Mairo is one of the most talented singers I have ever heard, but his lyrics aren't anything great, nor do they need translation.
