Black History - Lyrics

My heart is filled with grief, when I remember, who-oh
How they've taken our foreparents from their homeland, ey-yes
Shipped to every corner of this earth, woy
Bound in shackles and chain like their beast, yes
They would be spanked with many strikes by the master, woy
If they should ever not do just what they're told, yea-e
It really grieves my heart to see
It's pure brutality, I, yes, oh-oh
Whenever I recall my history
It grieves my heart, you see
How they've treated our foreparents
In the days of slavery, ah-ah-ah.
Slavery, and brutality
That's all they give me, wo-oh
That's all they give me, yeh-eh
(.)
My heart is filled with grief, when I remember, who-oh
How they've taken our foreparents from their homeland, ye-ee
Shipped to every corner of this earth, wo-oh
Bound in shackles and chain like their beast, yea
They would be spanked with many strikes by the master, wo-oh
If they should ever not do just what they're told, yea-e
It really grieves my heart to see
It's pure brutality, I, oh-oh
My heart is filled with grief, when I remember, yea-ee
How they've taken our foreparents from their homeland, o-woy
Shipped to every corner of this earth, o-woy
Bound in shackles and chain like their beast, ah-um.
I know, I know, I know
I know, I know. my history
I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know.
