Lyrics
Uh, with your bad self
Say it louder (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it louder (I'm Black and I'm proud)

Looky here
Some people say we got a lot of malice
Some say it's a lotta nerve
But I say we won't quit moving
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)

I've worked on jobs with my feet and my hands
But all the work I did was for the other man
And now we demands a chance
To do things for ourselves
We're tired of beating our heads against the wall
And working 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)

Ow!
Ooh-wee, you're killing me
Alright, uh, you're out of sight
Alright, so tough, you're tough enough
Ooh-wee, uh, you're killing me, ow

Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it louder (I'm Black and I'm proud)

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

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)
Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Ow!

Uh, alright now
Lordy
You know we can do the boogaloo
Now we can say we do the Funky Broadway
Now we do
Ha, sometimes we dance, we sing, and we talk
You know I do like, I do the Camel Walk
Alright now, ha, alright
Alright now, ha

Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Let me hear ya, say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)

Now we demand a chance to do things for ourselves
We're tired of beating our heads against the wall
And working for someone else, huh
You know, we are people, too
We like the birds and the bees
But we'd rather die on our feet
Than keep living on our knees

Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Let me hear ya, ha
Say it loud, h (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Ow!

ooh-wee, you're killing me
Alright, uh, outta sight, alright, you're outta sight
Ooh-wee, oh Lord
Ooh-wee, you're killing me
Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wee, OW

Say it loud, huh (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
God, I feel it, say it loud, uh (I'm Black and I'm proud)
Say it loud (I'm Black and I'm proud)
