[Intro]

I said I love being Black

(I said I love being Black)

I said I love being Black

(I said I love being Black)

I love the color of my skin

(I love the color of my skin)

Cause it’s the skin that I’m in

(Cause it’s the skin that I’m in)

 

[Speech]

Your skin is not like theirs and that’s okay

Your hair is not like theirs and that’s okay

We are magic

We are beautiful

We are the womb of creation

Now voice that power

 

[Verse 1]

They say blacker the berry the sweeter the juice (get on up)

Once you go Black baby, ain’t nothing else left to choose (nah nah)

Big ole lips and kinky hair

Beauty so amazing it’s hard to bare

Ain’t sorry you feel uncomfortable

And you stop and stare

 

[B-Section]

We move the earth when we walk in

Try to hold us down baby baby we go’win (get on up)

Young gifted and Black go on and say it again

We shine like diamonds when the sun hit the skin, whoo

Black as night to the gold sands of the Sahara

We get finer with time can it get any better

Black girl magic, Black boy joy

So resilient we lift up every voice (get on up)

 

[Hook]

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

[Verse 2]

Jesus was a Black man

You know gang, gang, gang (gang, gang, gang)

Raising vibrations

So, we could all do the same (all do the same)

So Mama get your black dress

Soul Brotha get your black tie

We about to paint the town black

With all this fly

 

We move the earth when we walk in

Try to hold us down baby baby we go’win

Young gifted and Black go on and say it again

We shine like diamonds when the sun hit the skin, whoo

Black as night to the gold sands of the Sahara

We get finer with time can it get any better

Black girl magic, Black boy joy

So resilient we lift up every voice (get on up)

 

[Break]

Hold up, ya’ll ain’t ready for that. Bring that hook back, whoo

 

[Hook]

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

[Bridge]

Culture bringing, innovative, so creative, change a nation

(Yeah, I’m Black say it loud)

Chocolate, caramel, coffee brown, so many shades no choice to be proud

(standing hand in hand building us, true definition of Black love)

 

[Hook]

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

Didn’t choose to be Black

(Didn’t choose to be)

But I got lucky babe

(Black)

I got lucky babe

(Black, but I got lucky)

 

[Nina Simone Quote]

“To me we are the most beautiful creatures in the whole world, Black people

I mean and I mean that in every, in every sense, outside and inside

And to me we have a culture, that uh is surpassed by, by, by, by, no other civilization…”
