Elton John - "Young Gifted Black" lyrics

Written by irvine and simone

Available on the album reg dwights piano goes pop

Young, gifted and black

To be young, gifted and black
Oh what a lovely precious dream

Open your heart to what I mean

In the whole world you know

Theres a million boys and girls

Who are young, gifted and black

And thats a fact

Young, gifted and black

We must begin to tell our young
Theres a world waiting for you

This is a quest thats just begun

When you feel really low
Yeah, theres a great truth you should know

When youre young, gifted and black

Your souls 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 its at
