TemptationsMessage From A Black Man

[Melvin] Yes, my skin is black, But that's no reason to hold me back. [Eddie] Why don't you think about it? Think about it, think about it, think about it, Think about it... I have wants and desires, Just like you. So move on the side, 'Cause I'm comin' through, oh! [Temptations] No matter how hard you try, You can't stop me now. [Eddie and Temptations] No matter how hard you try, You can't stop me now, oooh... [Melvin] Yes, your skin is white... Does that make you right? [Eddie] Why don't you think about it? Think about it, think about it, think about it, Think about it... This is a message, A message to y'all: Together we stand, Divided we fall, oh! [Dennis] Black is a color, Just like white. Tell me: how can a color determine whether You're wrong or right? We all have our faults... Yes we do. [Eddie] So look in your mirror. [Temptations] Look in the mirror. [Eddie] What do you see? [Temptations] What do you see? [Eddie] Two eyes. [Temptations] Two eyes. [Eddie] A nose, and a mouth, just like me, oh! [Eddie] Your eyes are open, But you refuse to see, The laws of society Were made for both you, and me. Because of my color, I struggle to be free. Sticks and stones, May break my bones, But in the end, You're gonna' see my friend, oh! [Temptations] No matter how hard you try, You can't stop me now. [Temptations] Say it loud! No matter how hard you try, You can't stop me now.
