Birthday Celebration with Maya Angelou in Harlem.

Maya Angelou asks, why you cryin' little black boy?

You sitting here in Harlem, feel it in yo blood, let the inspiration flow.

Why you cryin', little black boy?

Because you gay and you black, like nobody knows?



Why you cryin', little black boy?

Because they don't like yo hair, they don't like yo nose?

Why you cryin', little black boy?

Take yo shoes off baby, feel the gravel under yo toes.



Why you cryin', little black boy?

Because you got a disease, and the cure no one knows.

Why you cryin', little black boy?

Let's enjoy this birthday, before your beautiful eyes close.
