17 A Seat at the Table lyrics for when you need an Instagram caption

1. I’m gonna look for my body yeah/ I’ll be back real soon

2. But you know that a king is only a man/ With flesh and bones, he bleeds just like you do

3. I tried to dance it away/ I tried to change it with my hair

4. But it’s hard when you only/ Got fans around and no fam around/ And if they are, then their hands are out/ And they pointing fingers

5. Because you celebrate Black culture does not mean that you don’t like white culture; or that you putting it down. It’s just taking pride

6. Don’t touch my crown

7. If you don’t understand us and understand what we’ve been through, then you probably wouldn’t understand what this moment is about.

8. We bowed our heads/ We broke our bread that night

9. If this white man offer me a million dollars I gotta be worth forty, or fifty… Or ten or something

10. I went away this concrete don’t have love for me

11. I’m going all the way/ But I’ll leave on the lights for you

12. We been lovers on a mission/ So let’s take an intermission

13. Baby it’s war outside these walls

14. None of us are perfect. We live in an imperfect world

15.  I tell people all the time, if you don’t understand my record, you don’t understand me, so this is not for you

16. The streets say you’re a king/ The world says you’re a failure

17. Now, we come here as slaves, but we going out as royalty, and able to show that we are truly the chosen ones
