The King of rap

January 17, 1992

Dr. King he was a thing,

He had a dream to let freedom ring;

He wanted it known high and low,

He wanted freedom to flow.

He tried to be a preacher,

But he became a great teacher,

No matter what color,

No matter what race,

Everyone would be in a place.

He tried to make it known to let there be peace, justice and respect;

He wanted everyone to be a family and live together as one.

He had a thought that was blue,

He turned it around and made it come true;

He won the fight to help black and white to walk together in day or night.
