Black Boy

A shy Black boy you came to the city.
To learn about life and how his people lost their lives.
He's very stubborn. He's just a child.
And now his life is mystified.

Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
The color of your skin is your pride and joy.
Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
Your life is not destroyed.

He didn't know the school. But they called him Black boy.
He hardly talked to the girls and boys.
Don't be a fool. Just obey the rules.
Cause you'll just learn the truth.

Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
The color of your skin is your pride and joy.
Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
Your life is not destroyed.

And one day you'll grow up to be a man,
To learn and live and understand
Sticks and stones may break your bones
But names will never hurt you.
You'll be the one who's having fun.
So you just keep learning on.

Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
The color of your skin is your pride and joy.
Black boy, Black boy,
Black boy, Black boy,
Your life is not destroyed.
