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
