Lyrics

[Intro] Every nigga is a star [Verse 1] I'm not sure anymore Just how it happened before The places that I knew Were sunny and blue I can feel it deep inside This black nigga's pride I have no fear when I say And I say it every day [Chorus] Every nigga is a star Every nigga is a star Who will deny that you and I And every nigga is a star? [Verse 2] I have walked the streets alone Twenty years I've been on my own To be hated and despised (Poor nigga) No one to sympathize (Poor nigga) But there's one great thing I know You can say "I told you so" We've got a bright place in the sun Where there's love for everyone, and [Chorus] Every nigga is a star Every nigga is a star Who will deny that you and I And every nigga is a star? [Post-Chorus] (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star Every nigga's a star, every nigga's a star (Yeah, yeah, yeah!) [Bridge] We've got a bright place in the sun Where there's love for everyone, and [Chorus] Every nigga is a star Every nigga is a star Who will deny that you and I And every nigga is a star? [Refrain] (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star (Bright shining star) Yes, every nigga is a star (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star (Bright shining star) Yes, every nigga is a star (Bright shining star) Every nigga's a star (Bright shining star)
