    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
    While others filled with fear
    Were tired and asleep

    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
    Death walks with us
    The end is always near

    If I'm afraid, then I don't take chances
    If I'm afraid, I let others make my way
    If I'm afraid, I don't have the mind-set
    To be successful every day

    Fear will prevent me from looking anything in the eye
    Yes, Sometime blind courage
    But that is survival
    On the streets of Bed-Sty

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

    BE
