(chorus:harmony) Heal yourself you got to heal yourself (kid capri talks) (big daddy kane) Mama said don't do crack and smoke you know 'cause it will make your nose grow like pinnochio Since I was only 15 I had to listen To what was said for my parent was a christian I went to school and saw all my friends do it But I said no 'cause I don't want my nose to grow They started tripping on me, busting and flipping on me So I had to front and say yo, true, stick it on me I started smoking to prove I'm an adult Now it's a habt but is it all my fault

I wished my mother would have told me the truth 'cause now I'm all based out, ma dukes (kid capri) Oh man I like the way that's going down Now why won't you do is kick a little freddie foxx (freddie foxxx) Everybody rise as I present to a jet black crowd What it's like to be black and proud In a world where white is right but not tonight This is a black man's might I heard a sister say she don't like darker shades of black On a man 'cause that's wack But to my light skin sister can't you tell

You're just the surface of a dark deep well And how can you prefer to be wit those That sprayed you wit gun and hoses And never put roses on the graves Of the slaves that they treated like dirt After all that hard work (kid capri) Clap your hands to the beat, c'mon, just clap your hands to the beat Freak it now (ll cool j) One of the biggest lies you hear from no one else Is when a girl tries to say she don't do it to herself Always fantasizing but steadily denying

Last night she had to stop 'cause her baby was crying She do it on the phone all alone wit a smile Run the water, grab the shower cap and get buckwhyled Soap suds on the floor, oh al b sure Give it to me, give it to me, give me a little more I'm fiending, creaming, screaming, dreaming (what else) The girl's possess by the basehead demon Chorus (mc lyte) In elementary, lyte had the jordache look Like me and any other kid who cared about books But then I got wise and I begin to listen To the wack teachers and the wick-wack system

My mother put me in ? Which means black school in swahili And there is where I learned black history And how to be the best that I can be I went back and now the school is closed There is nowhere for black youth to go To be taught by brothers and sisters who knows what it means To be a black child or a white teen In the end the youth is being mistreated Which means the world is being cheated (queen latifah) Dane was never taught her life was worth something

But when people don't try to improve it makes me want to hurt something You want to be somebody and be a standout But got your handout, oh you're broke, I guess it's off to your man's house Why is sister's giving up the ball Today it seems not to father you too hard They call us squeezers and you prove it to the worst You have to earn the right to say it's ladies first (kid capri) Oh man this is human education against lies You better know the flavor kid (krs-one) Human education against lies tries To open the eyes of humanity before it dies

Black and white ain't the real fight That's the only thing the media hypes The real fight are these major corporations Holding back on real education Before you're a color, first you're human Teaching humanity is what we're doing (kid capri) And just when you thought you knew everything there was to know You didn't know anything about this, tell 'em melodie (ms melodie) Daddy's home everyday since he lost his job His new line of work is now beating up mom Mom is scared, she doesn't know what to do

Her beautiful skin is now black and blue She used to cry, now she's back in the pen A human war between women and men (kid capri) Melodie, kid capri (jam master jay and dmc) Jam jay on the way, yo Human education against lies To all the girls and to all the guys Get paid, get it made Get a good grade, live to a very old age Checking out jet, no disrespect To each and every member of the opposite sexes Is yes, listen to the messages and I send some We never knew where the poison came from Yo, we're rapping on h.e.a.l. so we thought we like to mention Acquired immune defiency syndrome Aids, we're here to make you get wise Human education against lies (kid capri talks)
