I’m a black woman, my prayers are deep.
When I feel pain, my soul weeps.
When I’m happy, my every word is a song.
I survived hard trials and making my family at home.
I got a whole lot of stuff going on in my head.
While regular folk rest in bed.
I stand with my man cause we all we got.
Sure I got rich heritage and I’m proud.
I sing and i dance and laugh out loud.
Yet, I’m still like everyone else
when I’m cut, I bleed.
But, I m the original. The party’s first seed.
So that means I got this plus a whole lot more.
I’m a black woman, I’m gracefully endowed.
I have a brother or sister in every crowd.
I’m a black woman, wise in many things.
Cause, I learn from what experience brings.
I’m a black, her what I say
Give me the respect I’m due and love me today.
