Speak Lady Speak

Speak!

You a sign.

You a country

of a lady.

 

Speak!

You a stereo type.

You an area code

of your own.

Speak,

Lady!

Everybody needs directions

to travel around you.

 

Speak,

Lady!

You not a nobody,

rise

to your feet!

Speak,

Lady!

Whole world with their feet on you,

their feet on a queen.

 

Speak,

Lady,

Speak,

You

some

body.
