Black Jesus † Amen Fashion

Album: Born This Way (2011)
  • I grew up in New York City
    Since I was born on Broadway, baby
    Moved downtown when I was just nineteen
    To start a new life on the New York scene

    There's no way I could be stopped
    Was taking my best shot
    I had better plans there's no way I could be stopped
    Was coming for your spot I met a better man

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Dancing in my revelation
    Underground pop civilization
    Concrete poetry to feed my mind
    Old symbolism was left behind

    There's no way I could be stopped
    Was taking my best shot
    I had better plans, there's there's no way I could be stopped
    Was coming for your spot, I met a better man

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Put it on, amen fashion
    Celebrate, oh oh, a new compassion
    Put it on, amen fashion
    Celebrate, ooh ooh, style your passion

    Put it on, amen fashion
    Celebrate, oh oh, a new compassion
    Put it on, amen fashion
    Celebrate, oh oh, wear out your vision

    Black Jesus, black Jesus, black Jesus
    Jesus is the new black, oh

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus

    Amen, on the runway
    Dressed in his best
    Amen fashion, on the runway
    Work it, black Jesus
