Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?
Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?

What if I was gone forever?
No more chocolate kisses, no nappy dugout ever
No mama, no daughter, no sister, no, no sister friends
Tell me my brother, what would become of you then?
What if, poof, every black female in the world disappeared?

Your man-child left unattended
Lost when no one behind the steerin' wheel
Tell me, c'mon, how would that make you feel?
C'mon, c'mon, help a sister say

Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?
Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?

Your beautiful brown would be forever gone
When no more cocoa wombs to carry your brown on
You right there, would be the last of your kind
Can you feel this song? How does that affect your mind?

'Cause if there was no me, there'd be no you
Ooh, can you feel me? Is this song comin' through?
That's the science in it but it's so much more intense
Reach into your soul for the answer
Reach wherever you need to, to find it

Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?
Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?

Say you be trippin', say you pimpin' it
Talkin' 'bout how you da man
What you are is somethin' different
By-product of when massa ruled your life
Spreadin' babies everywhere, couldn't think, couldn't care

But you can now, you can, you can
C'mon and man up, damn it
Tell me how you'd feel?
No mama, no daughter

Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?
Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?

Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was gone?
Tell me how you'd feel?
Tell me how you'd feel if I was, if I was?
