Sanctified and Satisfied

How you goní get good loviní
From a man you keep breakiní down?

Oooh he may be tired
Black men they do get tired
And oh, his soul may be crying
Fighting the 400 year fight
When heís feeling weary
Give him that sexual healing

And he will always stay

Sanctified and satisfied
Strong and ready, to fight another day

and, oh! He may be shame
Black men they do feel shame
Knowing she doesnít see him
The way she use to see him
And no, she donít do him
Like she use to do him
Wash him in your sugar rain
One thousand and one different ways

And his soul will reverb

Sanctified and satisfied
Strong and ready, to fight another day

Heíll keep the food on the table
If you treat him like heís able
Girl youíve got to
Whisper to his body
That you ainít lost the faith
With all the skill those lips can
Over and over again
He will never be anything less than a man

And he will rise

Sanctified and Satisfied
Strong and ready to fight another day

My sister you must be
as soft as the womb
as committed as a tomb
as necessary as his heart
as supportive as his legs
as strong as his arms
and treat him well
A life without a happy man
can be the closest thing to Hell
and ain't nothin said
in an empty, lonely bed

Erm, why does colour matter? or am I stupid. A person is a person, colour matters not. Its the heart and soul that matter, not pigment of the skin...
