    BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

    Beautiful people we are,
    We are beautiful people by far.
    Coming from all shades of brown
    From mocha to chocolate to deep dark coffee ground

    Beautiful people we are
    We are beautiful by far.
    Setting trends, styles and attitudes
    From our hair to our clothes to our shoes.

    Beautiful people we are
    We are beautiful people by far.
    Our music and books
    Make others stand and take a look

    Beautiful people we are
    We are beautiful people by far.
    My people be proud of thing we say and do
    My people be proud, be you.

    we are beautiful
    in our varying hues
    raising the bar
    with the choices we choose
    and all that we say
    we say it with ease
    I LOVE YOU is bond
    i say to you
    PLEASE
    continue to flow as you do.

    THANK YOU.
