    Lighten up Cats
    I know that I'm Black
    Dark as a kettle
    100 proof...jack

    My dome's intact
    Why can't I go there
    I'm raking it big
    Pan-African kid

    It's near where I live
    Inside dis' Black heart
    My mojo' working ~
    Like Meadowlark

    Blacker than black
    Playing the mack
    The whole world's
    Lighter than me and you

    Show the respect
    That's coming to you
    Whatever your hue
    It's long overdue...

    I'm talkin' to you
    Those blacker than blue
    Them paler than white
    Brown and uptight

    Yellow be bold
    Anlgo be down
    More foolin' around :smokin:
    You're BLACK
