Does it really matter if I am black?

I know that I am short,
But my dreams…… [High pitch, pause] ain’t any shorter,
I can put the ball into the basket,
I know I can do it….yes, yeah, better than you!!! [Emphasize]

But there you boss over me,
But there you bully over me,
You run with the ball away from me, you scream that I am a scum,
And there goes my dreams……. [High pitch] shattered.

I know that I am thin,
But my goals in life…….[High pitch, pause] ain’t any thinner,
I can kick the football, high into the air, into the goal,
I know I can do it….yes, yeah, better than you!!! [Emphasize]

But there you boss over me,
But there you bully over me,
You say go and check your foot, before you play with the ball,
And there goes my life goals……. [High pitch] shattered.

I know that I am black,
But my beauty……… [High pitch, pause] ain’t any blacker,
I know that I can live, strive and model for my beauty,
I know I can do it….yes, yeah, better than you!!! [Emphasize]

But there you boss over me,
But there you bully over me,
You say, I am ugly, you reprimand me for participating modeling,
And there goes my beauty ………… [High pitch] shattered.

Don you dare make me angry,
Don you dare make me sad
Just give me a chance, listen……..
