    I ain't afraid of nothing
    God made me a black man
    I crossed the ocean with chains on my feet
    I was whipped for trying to run
    When others filled with fear
    Were tired and sleep

    I kicked Jim Crow's ***
    Kicked his dog's *** too
    I ain't afraid of nothing
    There ain't nothing I'm afraid to do

    I don't have time for fear
    As a black man you should know
    The end is always near

    If I 'm afraid then I don't take chances
    If I'm afraid then I let others make my way
    If I'm afraid then I don't have the mindset
    To be successful everyday

    Fear will not prevent me from looking anything in the eye
    Yes, sometime blind courage
    But key to survival
    On the streets of Bed Sty

    I'll deal with it
    Work with it
    I'm not afraid
    I'm not gonna cry
    It's only God I fear
    I'll only be afraid
    After I die
