Little black girl this is a song for you
In case the world is busy and forgets to sing to you
They've more important ships to sail
Like building malls and saving whales
So they don't see
That you're the real endangered species

Little black girl can't always believe what you see
It doesn't mean you're dumb
Just cuz no one smart looks like you on t.v.
That foul mouthed lady on the news
In her houseshoes and curlers isn't you
Nor an indication of what you should aspire to

Cuz it's a minor miracle just to make your graduation
When nowhere in your world is there a hint of validation
This is not political it's personal
My empathy runs deep
Cuz you see
It happened to me

So little black girl this is a song for you
May not be too much but it's the least that I could do
Cuz when I look into your eyes
I see myself and that is why
I give you this
And pray it saves you from feeling like I did
Little black girl
