Elton John - "Young Gifted And Black" lyrics

Young, gifted and black Oh what a lovely precious dream To be young, gifted and black Open your heart to what I mean

In the whole world you know There's a million boys and girls Who are young, gifted and black And that's a fact

Young, gifted and black We must begin to tell our young There's a world waiting for you This is a quest that's just begun

When you feel really low Yeah, there's a great truth you should know When you're young, gifted and black Your soul's intact

Young, gifted and black How I long to know the truth There are times when I look back And I am haunted by my youth

Oh but my joy of today Is that we can all be proud to say To be young, gifted and black Is where it's at
