Black Woman Cry / charles langley

Black woman cry, black woman cry
Sitting at home, many children to mine alone
No one to give them food
No one to lend a loan
No husband around to help at home
Black woman cry, Black woman cry
First girl sixteen, want to become a beauty queen
No one around to help with a loan
Some times feel like giving up hope
Because life is not a joke
Black woman cry, Black woman cry
Conceiving bring pain
Looking for a husband help is like looking out in vain
So it will never make sense to conceive again
No one around to support me and my children an’ them
