    The Supreme Court
    has ruled on public school choice
    Black folks kids in failing schools
    sing hallelujah
    It's time to rejoice

    You are no longer forced
    to endure sub-standard education
    Send your kids to another school
    a better school
    have them mix with the progressive population

    But if you go
    be prepared to learn
    the system must provide transportation
    that should not be an excuse
    the least of your concerns

    Now is the time to take control
    Parents of black children
    have a most important role

    It's in your home the spirit of education begins
    outside of the classroom our children have much to learn
    so they can get what they want from life
    be part of America's greatness
    without losing a turn

    But if we do things the same old way
    sacrificing education for play
    making education a low family priority
    in all the things you have to do
    it won't matter where your kids go to school
    your kids will fail there too

    BE

    dis be so true
    it makes our color
    turn blue
    family bond to teach
    give our children some pride
    so some day true freedom rise
    no longer should we hide
    behind da wall of our homes
    seeing children fall ever so wrong

    yes BE............
    it's tyme to stand up
    i'm short but i'm standing
    tall too....
    keepin it real
