Ooo child look at you
your chocolate brown, skin,
those hopeful, pretty eyes
that priceless gapped smile,
all that wild hair,
BEAUTIFUL

Ooo child look at you
always been real silly
so much imagination
and all that talent
You keep having fun now
INNOCENT

Ooo child look at you
can't nothing tear your pride
you know how smart you are
sometimes get on our nerves
but we couldn't be more proud
INTELLIGENT

Little black girl now listen to me
God gave you beauty, intelligence,
and a good heart
He made you special
Don't let no one tell you different
