We're A Winner

Il testo di questo inno fondamentale del black pride si trova in Rete riportato da un mucchio di siti di lyrics e immancabilmente con svariati strafalcioni... Sono dovuto andare sul numero del 15 febbraio 1968 della rivista musicale “Jet” (su Google Books) per trovare il testo corretto...
We're a winner
And never let anybody say
“Boy, you can't make it
'Cause a feeble mind is in your way”
No more tears do we cry
And we have finally dried our eyes
And we're movin' on up (movin' on up)
Lord have mercy
We're movin' on up (movin' on up)

We're living proof and all is alert
That we're too, from the good black dirt
And we're a winner
And everybody knows it too
We'll just keep on pushin'
Like your leaders tell you to
At last that blessed day has come
And I don't care where you come from
We're all movin' on up (movin' on up)
Lord have mercy
We're movin' on up (movin' on up)

Hey, Hey
We're movin' on up (movin' on up)
Lord have mercy
We're movin' on up (movin' on up)

I don't mind leavin' here
To show the world we have no fear
'Cause we're a winner
And everybody knows it too
We'll just keep on pushin'
Like your leaders tell you to
At last that blessed day has come
And I don't care where you come from
We're just go move on up (movin' on up)
Lord have mercy
We're movin' on up (movin' on up)
We'll just keep on pushin'
We're a winner
Lord, oh baby
Everybody
Hey, you know we're movin' on up
We're a winner...
