Black Is Beautiful Lyrics

We love the children of Africa
Teaching the children
Oh na na na na
La da da da

Black eye, black hair, black skin
Black queen stand majestic with the black king
Today I'll sing you a black song
You need to hear about beautiful black things 'cause
Most time we hear about black, we hear about black magic and black witches
Black list, black book, black market
Black Friday, ya spend off your black riches
I've never seen a doctor in black nor seen a black pill fi cure no black people
But I've seen bush doctors like Tosh and Marley resurrect like a real black beatle
Malcom, Marcus, Martin
When you see Walter Rodney ask him
How you nuh hear about Howell often
So when the little offspring asking, tell them

They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, black is beauty
They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, they never told us black is beautiful You ah behave and ah gwaan like you never spend 500 years pon a farm
The same chain you ah wear and a gwaan is another black life in Sierra Leone
Dem find out mama earth got gold then
Dem mine out mama earth black soul then
You work hard just fi get ah black card
Same card weh you swipe buy back your black gold then
Hol' on, I see nuff faces long
But this is not a racist song
This is a song for the children who was never told about where their race is from
They never hear it in dem favourite songs
Everybody calm, ah say slavery's done
What a go gwaan when the babies come
And start read 'bout things like
Dogons, black Kemet and Kush
Black kings, black senates and books
Weh teach 'bout pyramids and put
Real significance to we physical looks
So every word weh mi say black
In my world everything black
Black white, white black right back
So don't be surprised when mi say mi king black

They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, black is beauty
They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, they never told us black is beautiful

Preacher is preaching, good God, things that he preaches
I wonder who taught him to preach
Teacher is teaching, where did he get his degree?
Now it is no mystery, who taught us black history
Ease up
