Lyrics

Uh, with your bad self [CHORUS] Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Lookie here Some people say We got a lot of malice Some say it's a lotta nerve But I say we won't quit moving Until we get what we deserve We've been buked And we've been scorned We've been treated bad Talked about as sure As you're born But just as sure as it Takes two eyes to make a pair Brother, we can't quit Until we get our share [repeat CHORUS] One more time Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud I've worked on jobs With my feet and my hands But all the work I did Was for the other men And all we demands a chance To do things for ourselves We're tired of beating Our heads against the wall And working for someone else [repeat CHORUS 2x] Oowee, you're killing me All right, uh, you're out of sight All right, so tough You're tough enough Oowee, you're killing me [repeat CHORUS] And all we demands a chance To do things for ourselves We're tired of beating Our head against the wall And working for someone else

Lookie here There's one thing more I got to say right here Now, now we're people We're like the birds and the bees And we'd rather die on our feet Than keep living on our knees [repeat CHORUS] Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud Lordy, Lordy, Lordy Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud All right now, Lord You know we can do the boogaloo Now we can say We do the Funky Broadway...
