Black wall street, a place we built

But they burned, a time where we stood tall 

But they made us fall, the legacy is still alive.

Black wall street, a place where we had happy homes

But they were destroyed for the unknown, where we grew old to the bone

And  died with a good soul, the legacy is still alive.

Black wall street, we will always stand behind your legacy

Even against the enemy, who should have sympathy

For the pain they have caused, has any shame been felt

At Least it’s all over, since the fire’s been put out.

Black wall street, we still believe in you without a doubt

Let the angels fly and run all out, let them be free without a pout 

Lets keep this legacy up and out around the world, because it will never die or be kicked to the curb, the legacy is still alive.
