Hey ..........     Yeah

Me siento bien (Te conseguí)
Me siento bien
yo sabía que
sería ahora
Tan
bien, Tan bien, Te conseguí!
Me siento agradable
Como el azúcar y la especia
Tan Agradable, Tan Agradable,
Porque te conseguí
Cuando
te tengo en mis brazos
sé que no puedo hacer
nada mal ahora
Cuando
te tengo en mis brazos
Mi amor no puede hacerme daño
Say it loud, I´m black and I´m proud
Now we demand a chance to do things for ourserlf
We're tired of beatin' our head against the wall
And workin' for someone else
We're people, we're just like the birds and the bees
We'd rather die on our feet
Than be livin' on our knees
Say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud
Dilo alto, soy negro y estoy orgulloso
Ahora exigimos una
oportunidad de hacer las cosas por nosotros mismos
estamos hartos de golpear nuestra cabeza contra la pared
y
de trabajar para otros
somos
personas, somos justo igual que los pájaros y las abejas
Nosotros preferimos morir
de pie
Que
vivir de rodillas
Dilo alto, soy negro y estoy orgulloso
