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's a 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 – Yours is the quest that's just begun
When you feeling real low
Here's a great truth that 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…)
