Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson
[Verse 1: Gil Scott-Heron]
Like the waves, he's got to ride on
On the scene, he must come in
Like the answers to every question
That's what he need understand
Black man, come down
And sit beside us
You can share all that we have

[Verse 2: Gil Scott-Heron]
And like the stage he's got to play on
Life is a road, and he's pinning down
Life attracts him just like a magnet
Or was that, or was that the other way around?
Black man, come down
Come on down and sit beside us
You are welcome to all we own

[Verse 3: Gil Scott-Heron]
Upside the walls and in the corners
Of the rooms where we live
Love is stronger with every heartbeat
And this love we gladly give
Just come on down
And sit beside us
Can your mind believe your heart?
Black man, come down
Yeah, come on down
Come down
