Hold your head as high as you can
High enough to see who you are, little man
Life sometimes is cold and cruel
Maybe no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold, Black Gold
You are Black Gold

Now maybe no one else has ever told you so
But you're golden, baby
You're Black Gold with a diamond soul

Think of all the strength you have in you
From the blood you carry within you
Ancient men, powerful men
Builders of civilization

There'll be folks hell bent on putting you down
Don't get burned (Don't get burned)
Not necessarily everyone will know your worth
No, no, no, no, all your worth

Think of all the strength you have in you
From the blood you carry within you
Ancient men, powerful men
Builders of civilization
Think of all the strength you have in you
Powerful, powerful men
Builders of civilization

Hold your head as high as you can
High enough to see who you are, little man
Life sometimes is cold and cruel
Maybe no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold, Black Gold
You are Black Gold

Think of all the strength you have in you
From the blood you carry within you
Ancient men, powerful men
Builders of civilization
Think of all the strength you have in you
Ancient men, powerful men
Builders of civilization

Hold your head as high as you can
High enough to see who you are, little man
Life sometimes is cold and cruel
Maybe no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold, Black Gold
You are Black Gold
[x4]

Hold your head as high as you can
High enough to see who you are, little man
Life sometimes is cold and cruel
Maybe no one else will tell you so remember that

You are Black Gold, Black Gold
You are Black Gold
You are
You are
You are
Hold your head up
Don't give up
You are Black Gold
You are
You are
Black Gold
