Say It Loud (I'm Black And I'm Proud)
Uh, with your bad self
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)

Look a-here
Some people say we got a lot of malice, some say it's a lotta nerve
But I say we won't quit movin' until we get what we deserve
We've been 'buked and we've been scorned
We've been treated bad, talked about as sure as you're born
But just as sure as it take two eyes to make a pair, huh
Brother we can't quit until we get our share

Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
One more time, say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Huh

I've worked on jobs with my feet and my hand
But all the work I did was for the other man
And now we demands a chance to do things for ourselves
We tired of beatin' our head against the wall
And workin' for someone else

Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Oh

Ooh-wee, you're killin' me
Alright, uh, you're out of sight
Alright, so tough, you're tough enough
Ooh-wee, uh, you're killin' me

Ow, say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Say it louder
(I'm black and I'm proud)

Now we demands a chance to do things for ourselves
We tired of beatin' our heads against the wall
And workin' for someone else
Look a-here, there's one thing more I got to say right here
Now, now we're people, we like the birds and the bees
But we'd rather die on our feet than keep livin' on our knees

Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud) huh
Say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud) huh
Say it louder
(I'm black and I'm proud)
Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, huh, say it loud
(I'm black and I'm proud)

Uh! alright now, good God
You know we can do the boogaloo
Now we can say we do the funky dog
