Daybreak will find me
Down on my knees
A slave to my job
Oh Lord, I got to get free
A baby is born
But what's his destiny?
Black in a white world

When will we gain
The freedom that we seek?
Must we remain
A slave to this thief?
There is no justice
There's only grief
When you're black in a white world

Sometimes I cry
But what good does it do?
Ain't I been told
"To thine own self be true"?
My child is born
But what's he gonna do?
Black in a white world
