(Verse 1)
We done earned the right to floss a bit
We been running, beaten, talked down cause our skin
I done shined, shined bright through the hate
I’m a king, she a queen
They all know we great
I know you a fan
Oh you want my style
Can you rock a pain chain?
Can you rock my sorrows?
I know their afraid
Cause I’m educated
Yeah, yeah, you’re looking at greatness

(Pre Chorus – Masego)
I’m Melanin Man
No, no, no that ain’t a tan yeah

There they go, they say fly

(Chorus – Masego)

(Verse 2)
I love the way I feel when I see my brethren with me
They shine
See can you see, can you see, can you see them shine?
I love when I see my lady shine
My queen stays shining
