Lyrics:
Uh! Your bad self!
Say it loud! - I'm black and I'm proud
Say it louder! - I'm black and I'm proud
Look-a-here!

Some people say we got alot of malice
Some say it's a lotta nerve
But I say we won't quit movin' until we get what we deserve
We've been buked and we've been scourned
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 - huh!

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 tired of beatin' our head against the wall
An workin' 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 - oow!

Ooo-wee, you're killin' me
Alright, uh! you're out of sight!
Alright, so tough you're tough enough!
Ooowee uh! you're killin' me! oow!

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 tired of beatin' our heads against the wall
And workin' for someone else
A-look-a-here
There's one thing more I got to say right here
Now, now we're people, we're like the birds and the bees
We rather die on our feet than keep livin' on our knees

Say it loud - I'm black and I'm proud hu!
Say it loud - I'm black and I'm proud hu!
Say it loud - I'm black and I'm proud Lord-a-Lord-a-Lord-a
Say it loud - I'm black and I'm proud - oooh!

Uh! alright now, good God
You know we can do the boog-a-loo ....

Part 2

Now we can say we do the Funky Broadway
Now we can do hu!
Sometimes we dance we sing and we talk
You know I do like to do the camel walk
Alright now hu! alright-alright now ha!

Say it loud - I'm black and I'm proud
Say it louder - I'm black and I'm proud - let me hear ya'
Say it louder - I'm black and I'm proud
Say it louder - I'm black and I'm proud

Now we's demands a chance to do things for ourselves
We tired of beatin' our heads against the wall
And workin' for someone eles hu!

But we'd rather die on our feet
