    Lyrics

    It ain't nothin' but an us thing
    And it's time for us to step it up and respect
    That level of sisterhood that's been holdin' up our neighborhood
    And if it wasn't for our mothers there would be no brothers
    And if it wasn't for our sisters there would be no misters
    So it ain't nothin' but an us thing
    She's strong and that's a fact
    Now it's time for us to take up the slack
    Step it up, step it up time to go to work

    History hidden from me
    To hide my identity
    So I'd never feel
    I am somebody
    You've gouged my eyes
    I see more clearly
    You've tried to rob my humanity
    My spirit you tried to break
    My soul you tried to take
    There's no need to be afraid
    'Cause I won't do unto you now

    Amen
    All that we've been through
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due
    Amen
    It's time to know the truth
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due

    Because of my gender
    I've heard "no" too many times
    Because of my race
    I've heard "no" too many times
    But with every "no" i grow in strength
    That is why
    African American woman
    I stand tall with pride
    You want to know what it takes
    To rid yourself of me now
    There's nothing you can do
    Accept me for who i am now

    Amen
    All that we've been through
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due

    Amen
    All that we've been through
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due
    Amen it's time to know the truth
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due

    Time to step it up, step it up
    Better check yourself
    I get vexed to protect what we got
    Left her alone
    Lookin' for your own
    Here it is I know what I'm sayin'
    But the klan ain't playin' at the range
    Gotta step it up us to discuss a must
    It ain't nothin' but an us thing
    Rewind back to the time
    Where the color of our mother
    Had 'em call it a crime
    Brother what in the world?
    And the world says where in the black man
    Support the women and children
    Time to step it up, step it up, it's play off time
    And the rhyme go to check, so check yourself

    I have, a new agenda for you

    Amen
    All that we've been through
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due
    Amen it's time to know the truth
    Our time has come to rejoice
    A new agenda's due
    Repeat

    Amen
    All that we've been through
    Our time has come to rejoice
