Текст на песента

[Hook]

You would never know

If you could ever be

If you never try

You would never see

Stayed in Africa

We ain’t never leave

So there were no slaves in our history

Were no slave ships, were no misery, call me crazy, or isn’t he

See I fell asleep and I had a dream, it was all black everything

[Verse 1]

Uh, and we ain’t get exploited

White man ain’t feared so he did not destroy it

We ain’t work for free, see they had to employ it

Built it up together so we equally appointed

First 400 years, see we actually enjoyed it

Constitution written by the W.E.B. Du Bois

Were no reconstructions, Civil War got avoided

Little black Sambo grows up to be a lawyer

Extra extra on the news stands

Black woman voted head of Ku Klux Klan

Malcolm Little dies as a old man

Martin Luther King read the eulogy for him

Followed by Bill O’Reilly who read from the Quran

President Bush sends condolences from Iran

Where FOX News reports live

That Ahmadinejad wins Mandela peace prize

[Hook]

You would never know

If you could ever be

If you never try

You would never see

Stayed in Africa

We ain’t never leave

So there were no slaves in our history

Were no slave ships, were no misery, call me crazy, or isn’t he

See I fell asleep and I had a dream, it was all black everything

[Verse 2]

Uh, and it ain’t no projects

Keepin it real is not an understood concept

Yea, complexion’s not a contest

Cause racism has no context

Hip hop ain’t got a section called conscious

Everybody rappin’ like crack never happened

Crips never occurred no Bloods to attack them

Matter of fact no hood to attack in

Somalia is a great place to relax in

Fred Astaire was the first to do a backspin

The Rat Pack was cool group of black men

That inspired five white guys called The Jacksons

Eminem fitted in but then again he inspired a black rapper tryin to mimic him

And that’s what really rose up out of Michigan, the sign of white rapper by the name of 50 Cent, ha!

[Hook]

You would never know

If you could ever be

If you never try

You would never see

Stayed in Africa

We ain’t never leave

So there were no slaves in our history

Were no slave ships, were no misery, call me crazy, or isn’t he

See I fell asleep and I had a dream, it was all black everything

[Verse 3]

Uh, and I know it’s just a fantasy

I cordially invite you to ask why can’t it be?

Now we can do nothing bout the past

But we can do something about the future that we have

We can make fast or we can make it last

Every woman Queenin’ and every man a Kingin’

When those color lines come we can’t see between

We just close our eyes ’til it’s all black every-THING!

[Hook]

You would never know

If you could ever be

If you never try

You would never see

Stayed in Africa

We ain’t never leave

So there were no slaves in our history

Were no slave ships, were no misery, call me crazy, or isn’t he

See I fell asleep and I had a dream, it was all black everything
