NOW THERE'S MISS DIAHANN CARROLL
LENA HORNE AND EARTHA KITT
THEY STAYED ON TOP FOR AGES
BUT THEIR LOOKS NEVER QUIT

NOW WHEN WHITE WOMEN GET OLDER
THEIR SKIN GETS CREASED AND LINED
BUT BECAUSE OF MY RACE
JUST LOOK AT MY FACE
SOFT AS A BABY'S BEHIND!

BECAUSE BLACK DON'T CRACK
I TELL YA BLACK DON'T CRACK

HALLE BARRY HAS AN OSCAR
DIANA ROSS IS DOWN ON HER LUCK
BUT WHETHER FLYING HIGH
OR A DUI
THEY DON'T NEED NO NIP AND TUCK!

NOW HARRIET'S HAD HER RAILROAD
SOJOURNER'S HAD HER TRUTH
CONDELEEZA PLAYED THE WHITE HOUSE
NOW GIRL, GO FIX THAT TOOTH!

OPRAH WINFREY'S HAS HER BILLIONS
WHOOPI GOLDBERG'S GOT HER WIT
JANET LOST CONTROL
AT THE SUPER BOWL
BUT THEY STILL TALKIN' ABOUT THAT TIT!

AND THAT'S CAUSE BLACK DON'T CRACK
I'M SAYING BLACK DON'T CRACK

NOW JUST LOOK AT TINA TURNER
SHE'S AS AGELESS AS CAN BE
WHEN SHE DANCES IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE
SHE'S TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY THREE

SO WHITE GIRLS GET YOUR FACE LIFTS
TILL YOUR FOREHEAD'S ON YOUR BACK
CAUSE I'LL BE HAVING FUN
OUT IN THE SUN
CAUSE BABY
BLACK DON'T CRACK!
