    Oh Black Mammy Strong Black Woman


    Old black mammy strong warrior
    Never gave up, kept house in order,
    Old black mammy warrior stood tall
    Trusting in the lord,
    Old black mammy warrior called
    De lord all through the morning.

    So you say I’ se a slave woman
    So you say I’ se liking education
    I ‘se a strong black women
    Old black mammy warrior stood up
    And said, take me if you must
    But my lord is on his way.

    Born in da place call segregation.

    I raise your Chilean and take care
    Your plantation, and your babies
    call me mama, I’ se carry black woman
    with dignity. Old black mammy
    with head in wrap, forsaken the
    master with her loud deep voice.

    I ‘se come to de point
    Master I stand to the wipe you carry
    Lord say wait my Chilean I’ se
    On my way.

    So you say I’ se a slave woman
    I ‘ se a strong woman, you send my Chilean
    To the slave chambers, I stand tall
    With dignity and pride,
    Nevertheless you hang my son’s from the tree
    I ‘ se a strong black woman
    I cry and wipe my eyes, my Chilean on the way
    To the lord, better dead then be the master slave.

    Master wife look down on me;
    ****** girl she say get to work
    I look at her in her eye
    Yes master I be right on time;
    You say I’ se slave women,
    Lord the master look at me
    Want me for his mistress, master wife
    Look down on me.
    Can’t be so bad, I’ se a pretty black queen.


    Say I’ se slave woman, yes indeed
    Work master plantation, smart I think
    So you say I’ se a slave woman
    Yes you said.
    The lord whisper de secret in my ear
    Daughter of the chosen I shall by there.

    An' no matter what de trouble, I’ se sing it to the lord
    Lord come by here, Lord come by here
    Lord say I coming to the promise land one day
    I shall return.
