Mabo home
... I'm Only Five Feet Four...
I may be small
You can't see much at all
I'm only five feet four
But I am proud of what I am
I'll always say "Black is Beautiful"

I make myself heard
When I'm in a crowd
I'll fight for my rights
'Til the day I die
That's why I say -
I'm small. I'm proud. I'm loud.

For my husband, Koiki
