Brown baby
Brown baby
As you grow up
I want you to drink from the plenty cup
I want you to stand up
Tall and proud
I want you to speak up
Speak up clear and cloud

Brown baby
Brown baby
As years roll by
Walk with your head held high
I want you to live by
Live by the justice code
I want you to walk down
Walk down the freedom road

Brown baby
Brown baby
Now baby
Lie away
Lie away sleeping
Lie away here in my arms
While your mommy and daddy protect you
And keep you save from harm

Brown baby
Brown baby
It makes me so glad
That you will have things
I've never had
When out of men's hearts
All the hate is hurled
You're gonna live
You're gonna live in a better world

Brown baby
Mmammamama
Brown baby
Mmammamama
Sweet thing
Lie away sleeping
