ARETHA FRANKLIN - Young Gifted And Black Lyrics

To be young, gifted and black!
oh what a lowly precious thing.
Oh when your,
yes yes when you're
When you're young, yeah thank you Jesus! gifted and you black!
Oh when Your heart is all I need.

In this cold world you know,
There are millions of boys and girls
Who are young gifted and black.
With their souls in tact.
And thats a fact.

You are young gifted and your black.
We must begin to tell our young there's a world waiting for you (you!)
For this is the quest that's just begun.
When your feeling real low.
Heres a great truth you should remember and know that you're young gifted and your black
You got your soul in tact
Oh and thats a fact.

You are young gifted and black
Oh it's a mighty sweet thing yes it is now.
Young gifted and black
Oh for the sistas!
Young gifted and black
Your young and you're black, you got your soul intact, keep your eye on the future, don't you never look back.
Young gifted and black(fades).
