Young, Gifted and Black

Aretha Franklin


To be young

Gifted, and black

Oh, what a lovely precious thing

Oh, when you're, yes, yes, when you're

When you're young, yeah, thank you, Jesus, gifted and black

Open your heart, is all I need

In this whole world, you know

There are millions of boys and girls

Who are young, gifted and black

With their souls intact, and that's a fact

You are young, gifted and black, we must begin to tell our young

There's a world waiting for you (you) yours is the quest that's just begun

When you feelin' real low

Here's a great truth you should remember and know

That you're young, gifted, and black

You got your soul intact, oh, and that's a fact

(You're young, gifted, and black)

Oh, it's a mighty sweet thing, yes, it is now

(Young, gifted, and black)

Oh, my sisters

(Young, gifted, and black)

You're young and you're black, you got your soul intact

You got the future, don't you know it's a fact?

(Young, gifted, and black)
