"Brotha" as written by Jill H. Scott and Allen Toussaint....
So many times you tried to cut we
You wanna tear we down, but you
Can't touch we
We ain't invincible
But Lord knows we're beautiful and
Blessed
Check the affirmative
(Oh yes)

Brotha, don't let nobody hold you
Back, no, no, no
Don't let nobody
Hold ya, control ya, or mold ya
Brotha, don't let nobody hold you
Back

Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes, I am

So many times you tried to burn we
You wanna break we down
(Use and discard)
We ain't invincible
But Lord knows we are magnificent
And blessed
Check for the positive

Brotha, don't let nobody hold you
Back, no, no, no
Don't let nobody hold you never, no
Brotha, don't let nobody hold you back
Don't let nobody hold you never, no
Brotha, don't let nobody hold you back, no, no, no

If nobody told ya, brotha
I'm here to let you know that
You're so wonderful
You're so marvelous
You're so beautiful
You're splendid
You're fabulous
Brilliantly blessed in every way
Y'all can't touch we

Brotha, don't let nobody hold you back
