Black Woman, Black Woman, my mother the earth, Soul of my substance the rich black dirt, Coloured blood red a black man's blood, Absorbed for eternity by your endless love. You gave birth to me just yesterday, What makes you think I drifted away? You sheltered my soul from the genocide, What I feel for you is absolute pride. I'm Young and I'm Vital, I'm Black and I'm Free. If I hurt you I'm sorry, I'm just being me. Times they're a changing and people change too, That don't mean I changed how I feel for you… 'Cause you are forever my mother the earth, The soul of my substance the rich black dirt. Coloured blood red, a Black Man's blood, Absorbed for eternity by your endless love.
