What you doin' man
I think I am goin' down the corner

One of the black boys said
"I need none of your pity"
It's your mama that don't
Like you loose in the city

But stick about, take note
Take a tip and take no back lip
Come on closer
Let me see you snap your fingertip

'Cause standin' on the corner
Just might suit you or maybe baby
There's somethin' else you wanna do, yeah

I like a rollin' dice, nice
I like a shootin' pool, hey, that's cool

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my place
I'm a little black boy and I just threw my ace
I'm a little black boy, recognize the face

One of the black boys said
"I'm givin' a warnin'
People been puttin' me down
I'm so tired, I'm yawnin'"

A new suit, pretty boots to boot
I'm feelin' slick, yeah
I'm gonna go to town, look around
Pull a chick, yeah

Of course standin' on the corner
Just might suit you or maybe baby
There's something else that you wanna do, yeah

I like a playin' poker, joker
I like to back a race, ace

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my proper place
I'm a little black boy, get my head in its space
I'm a little black boy, I just play my bass

I'm a little black boy, [Incomprehensible]
I'm a little black boy, recognize the face
I'm a little black boy, I'll take on anybody, [Incomprehensible]
