Young Gifted and Black Lyrics-words sung by Elton John


             More words about Black Pride. They areso lovely they are frameable. These are

great words to put in a plaque and and

on a wall anywhere. So here are the great words

to be heard:

Young, gifted and black
Oh what a lovely precious dream
To be young, gifted and black
Open your heart to what I meanIn the whole world you know
There’s a million boys and girls
Who are young, gifted and black
And that’s a fact

Young, gifted and black
We must begin to tell our young
There’s a world waiting for you
This is a quest that’s just begun

When you feel really low
Yeah, there’s a great truth you should know
When you’re young,
gifted and black
Your soul’s intactYoung, gifted and black
How I long to know the truth
There are times when I look back
And I am haunted by my youth

Oh but my joy of today
Is that we can all be proud to say
To be young, gifted and black
Is where it’s at
