Lyrics

The Temptations

Yes, my skin is black
But that's no reason to hold me back

Why don't you think about it, think about it
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 aside because I'm comin' through, oh

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Yes, your skin is white
Does that make you right?

Why don't you think about it, think about it
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

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

So look in your mirror, what do you see?
Two eyes, a nose and a mouth just like me

Oh, 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

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
We are rollin', rollin', rollin', we are rollin' on

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
Hey, we are rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin' on

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
You can't stop me, you can't stop me
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
Say it loud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
Say it

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
Say it loud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
I'm black and I'm proud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
I'm black and I'm proud
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

Say it loud
I'm black and I'm proud
