    Hurringly stepping so proud
    Mother nature's only god child
    Society salutes you today
    And we'd like to say

    God bless Miss Black America
    Watch over Miss Black America
    She cried tears of succes
    We wish her long happiness
    Miss Black America

    Sisters we're all so very proud
    Of that natural look we se among the crowd
    World wide admiration
    From nation to nation

    We love you too Miss Black America
    You're such wonderful people
    And so beautifully equal
    Miss Black America

    A culture noone can deny
    If a young child should ask
    Then tell them why
    They should not be ashamed
    Of their past, just explain

    The true mother is Black America
    None other than Miss Black America
    She cried tears of success
    We wish her long happiness
    Miss Black America
    Miss Black America
    We're so proud of you
    Miss Black America
