To Be Young, Gifted & Black Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
To be young, gifted and black
Oh what a lovely precious dream
To be young, gifted and black
Open your heart to what I mean
Verse 2
In the whole world you know
There are billion boys and girls
Who are young, gifted and black
And that's a fact!
Verse 3
Young, gifted and black
We must begin to tell our young
There's a world waiting for you
This is a quest that's just begun
Verse 4
When you feel really low
Yeah, there's a great truth you should know
When you're young, gifted and black
Your soul's intact
Verse 5
Young, gifted and black
How I long to know the truth
There are times when I look back
And I am haunted by my youth
Verse 6
Oh but my joy of today
Is that we can all be proud to say
To be young, gifted and black
Is where it's at
