The Old Negro's Song

Updated on February 29, 2020


to tribute to all persons of African descent...

the Old Negro's Song!!

oh! how beautiful my baby is your face,

you belong to the human race,

just look at your skin,

aren't you next of kin?

with chocolate brown color so smooth it shines,

nothing can dull your color,

you are lovely as a fresh flower.

they long to be your friend,

to you is send,

the gift of nature,

so be my teacher.

tell them what it is to be,

black and beautiful,

after all, we are all one,

one big happy family !!!

oh! how beautiful you have grown,

tall, shapely with a wide bold smile,

It will carry you the extra mile...

your breast is round like an apple,

your color dark rich chocolate,

your hair is soft wool, that hung to your shoulder,

it's rich curls dancing in the wind...

your soul is pure like the clear rainfall,

everyone awaits your call...

the hour, the time, is right for you my child,

to see the world and yet stay mild...

not a finger can hurt you,

for the world loves you,

yes, the world loves you...

oh, my baby, the past is history,

time for us to make our own tree,

the bonds of slavery are what shackles the mind,

but with love and newfound peace,

we can turn the mind around,

let the music sound...

the sweet rhythms of the drums,

the lively dances of the dancers fill the air,

with freedom and care...

lift our voices in songs of praise,

for the rest of our days,

please, my child, mend your ways...

let the world see that black is beautiful,

a color never to be dull,

a people of pride,

with bold beautiful eyes wide...

the time for hate is over,

that time of the past is never,

never to come again...

let your light fill the world,

let your story be told,

let the eyes of the foes behold,

the wonder of nature's black beauty...

my baby your god's love,

the gift from above.

no one can surpass your beauty and intelligence,

for you are persistent and self -reliant ...

gone are the days when the whips made you work,

gone are the days of marks on your flesh,

you prove you are the best,

leave it to the rest,

for you have passed the test...

the test of endurance,

you have excel,

your beauty has cast a spell,

your fragrance is like musk to smell...

your voice like the Nightengale,

your body moves in a swift Gail...

come to my beauty, let's sing to glory...

the praise of our divine love!!!
