Chuck ds intro:
It aint nothin but an us thang
And its time for us to step it up and respect
That level of sisterhood
That's been holding up our neighborhood
And if it wasnt for our mothers
There would be no brothers
And if it wasnt for our sisters
There would be no misters
So it aint nothin but a us thang
Shes strong and that's a fact
Now its time for us to take up the slack
Step it up, step it up, time to go to work

History hidden from me
To hide my identity
So Id never feel
I am somebody

Youve gouged my eyes
I see more clearly
Youve tried to rob
My humanity

My spirit you tried to break
My soul you tried to take
Theres no need to be afraid
Cause I wont do unto you now

Chorus:

Amen
All that weve been through
Our time has come to rejoice
A new agendas due
Amen
Its time to know the truth
Our time has come to rejoice
A new agendas due

(no no)
Because of my gender
(no)
I've heard no too many times
Because of my race
I've heard no too many times
But with every no
I grow in strength
That is why
African-American women
I stand tall with pride

You want to know what it takes
To rid yourself of me now
Theres nothing you can do
Accept me for who I am now

Chorus

Chuck ds rap:
Time to step it up, step it up
Better check yourself
I get vexed to protect what we got
Left her alone
Lookin for your own
Here it is I know what I'm sayin
But the klan aint playin at the range
Gotta step it up us to discuss a must
It aint nothin but an us thang
Rewind back to the time
Where the color of our mother
Had em call it a crime
Brother what in the world?
And the world says where is the black man
Support the woman and children
Time to step it up, step it up, its playoff time
And the rhyme go to check, so check yourself

Amen
A new agendas due

Chorus (2x)
