Derrick Harriott – Message From A Black Man lyrics

Yes, my skin is black
But that's no reason to hold me back
Why don't you think about it, think about it
Think about it, think about it, think about it
Think about it, think about it
I have wants and desires, just like you
So move on aside, because I'm comin' through, oh

No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now, ah
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now, ooh

Yes, your skin is white
Does that make you right
Why don't you think about it, think about it
Think about it, think about it, think about it
Think about it, think about it
This is a message, a message to y'all
Together we stand, divided we fall

Black is a colour, just like white
Tell me how can a colour determine whether
You're wrong or right
We all have our problems, yes we do
So look in the mirror, what do you see
Two eyes, a nose and a mouth just like me, oh

Your eyes are open but you refuse to see
The laws of society were made for both you and me
Because of my colour I struggle to be free
Sticks and stones can break my bones
But in the end, you gonna see my friend, oh

No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it loud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it loud
I'm black and I'm proud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it
I'm black and I'm proud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it loud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it loud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it
I'm black and I'm proud
No matter how hard you try
You can't stop me now
Say it loud
