Black Muse, can I talk 2 U?
What I got 2 share is mighty good news
A brand new day is dawning but U and me know what 2 do
So much work 2 do now

Black Muse, we've been so abused
Our mothers were good-lookin' and our fathers were 2
If they don't stay 2gether, we can't walk no better n these shoes
Black Muse

Long ago 2 men held 1 of us down
Another took a whip and made a terrible sound
Baby watched her father fallin' down 2 the ground
That was U and me

Black Muse, can I share with U?
Just came this mornin' and it's mighty good news
They tipped the hour glass, now everything is past
It's true

They gave the world back 2 U and me
The faces on the mountains and a dirty sea
A trillion dollar bill and no currency
Still we believe

Black Muse, we gon' make it thru
Surly people that created rhythm and blues
Rock 'n' roll and jazz so U know we're built 2 last
It's cool... (Black Muse)
Ooh-wee-ooh
Ooh-wee-ooh (Black Muse...)
Black Muse...

A new day is dawning Black Muse
A new day is dawning Black Muse
Do do do...
Da da da...
