    Lyrics

    No matter how hard you try
    You can't stop me now
    No matter how hard you try
    You can't stop me now
    Yes, my skin is black
    But that's no reason to hold me back
    Oh think about it, think about it,
    Think about it, think about it
    Think about it, think about it, think about it.

    I have wants and desires just like you
    So move on aside cause I'm a-comin' through
    Oh no matter how hard you try you can't
    Stop me now
    No matter how hard you try you can't stop me now.

    Yes, your skin is white
    Does that make you right
    Walk on and think about it, think about it
    Think about it, think about it
    Think about it, think about it, think about it.

    This is a message, a message to y'all
    Together we stand divided we fall
    Black is a color just like white
    Tell me how can a color determine whether
    You're wrong or right
    We all have our faults yes we do
    So look in your mirror
    What do you see, two eyes a nose and a
    Mouth just like me
    Oh your eyes are open but you refuse to see
    The laws of society were made for both
    You and me
    Because of my color I struggle to be free
    Sticks and stones may break my bones
    But in the end you're gonna see my friend
    No matter how hard you try you can't stop me now
    No matter how hard you try you can't stop me now.
