Black Gold


I breathe life into the nostrils of the dust of the earth.
A black man full of life, me-- all the world to him I entrust.
Precious jewels are eyes and pure gold is my skin.
Tall trees are my limbs and the tranquil skies are the spirit I live in.

I walked the earth with pride, style and grace.
The stars and the sun breed their light from my face.
All things are new from just one touch of my hand, nothing old.
I am black, I am beautiful, I Am Pure Black Gold.

I gave names to everything that lives and breath in my world.
From my seed I gave life to you, man-- woman-- boy and girl.
Bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh.
My Spirit I gave unto you and my love is your haven of rest.

Africa, I made her my mother and from her bosom I created me.
She is so beautiful with love for all the world to see.
All of me-- all of her, and the beauty of her Grace.
Yeah...look at me now, I don't make any mistakes.
Because of who she is and the wonders of her soul.
I am black, I am beautiful, I Am Pure Black Gold.

I walked on water so smoothly like silk.
Pure as honey, the greatness of me smooth...and hip.
I parted the sea with one wave of my hand, the grace of my style.
The power I gave unto me last forever, no, not just for a little while.
Listen, unity is the key and the knowledge of our history is power.
Learn who you are and together we can stand tall as a tower.

Drink of my spirit, breath of my life and feel my soul.
You will taste and see I am the blackness of Pure Black Gold.
