Lyrics

All of my life I've maintained my integrity
It's cost me a job, some friends, and scars you'll never see
But the sacrifice been worth it
I got the victory

Each of us must really believe
We are a part of the legacy
We've come from a line of Kings and Queens
Nothing is worth our dignity

Momma and Daddy worked their fingers to the bone
Brought a house and some land
Something that they could call their own
Yes the sacrifice was worth it
They planted the seed

Each of us must really believe
We're part of the legacy
We've come from a line of Kings and Queens
Nothing is worth our dignity

We come from a powerful breed
People died so we'd be free
How can you buckdance and cheese?
The saints are screaming at you
Stop playing the buffoon
There a generation with ambition searching for direction from you

Each of us must really believe
We're part of the legacy
We come from a line of Kings and Queens
Nothing is worth our dignity
Each of us must really believe
We're part of a legacy
We come from a line of Kings and Queens
Nothing is worth our dignity

Kings and Queens, legacy
Nothing's worth our dignity
Kings and Queens, legacy
Nothing's worth our dignity
Ah yea, (Kings and Queens, legacy)
Talkin' 'bout a sacrifice that
guaranteed our lives (nothing's worth our dignity)
Talkin' 'bout Grandmamma,
talkin' Granddaddy (Kings and Queens, legacy)
Workin' with the children of our
community (nothing's worth our dignity)
'Cause nothing's worth our dignity (Kings and Queens, legacy)
Nothing's worth it (nothing's worth our dignity)
To be young, gifted, and black (Kings and Queens, legacy)
And that's a fact! (nothing's worth our dignity)
Keep our head high, walk tall! (Kings and Queens, legacy)
Be proud of who you are (nothing's worth our dignity)
Talkin' 'bout Grandmamma,
talkin' Granddaddy (Kings and Queens, legacy)
Talkin' 'bout a time, a time long ago (nothing's worth our dignity)
But now they passed it down to us (Kings and Queens)
We gotta make it work (legacy)
Talkin' 'bout dignity (nothing's worth our dignity)
