An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.

I am a black boy:
Life is hard but I never give up
I’m like a little pup no one ever see me
And I can’t find a job to get money.

Black boy, Black boy that’s all I am.

I am a black boy:
I’m black as night and blacks just want to fight
Most people think we sleight all the time
We are looked at as committing a crime
I’m just a black boy.

Black boy, Black boy that’s all I am.
