Lyrics

Esperanza Spalding - Black Gold

Hold your head as high as you can

High enough to see who you are' little man

Life sometimes is cold and cruel

Baby no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

 

Now maybe no one else has ever told you so

 

But you're golden' baby

Black Gold with a diamond soul

 

Think of all the strength you have in you

From the blood you carry within you

Ancient men' powerful men

Built us a civilization

 

They'll be folks hell-bent on putting you down

Don't get burned (Don't get burned)

 

Not necessarily everyone will know your worth

 

Think of all the strength you have in you

From the blood you carry within you

Ancient men' powerful men

Built us a civilization

Think of all the strength you have in you

Powerful' powerful men

Built us a civilization

Hold your head as high as you can

High enough to see who you are' little man

Life sometimes is cold and cruel

Baby no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

 

Think of all the strength you have in you

From the blood you carry within you

Ancient men' powerful men

Built us a civilization

Think of all the strength you have in you

Ancient men' powerful men

 

Built us a civilization

 

Hold your head as high as you can

High enough to see who you are' little man

Life sometimes is cold and cruel

Baby no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

 

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

Hold your head as high as you can

High enough to see who you are' little man

Life sometimes is cold and cruel

Baby no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold' Black Gold

You are Black Gold

 

You are

 

You are

 

You are

 

Hold your head up

Don't give up

You are Black Gold

You are

You are

Black Gold
