LyricsEdit

Seaweed:
I can't see
Why people look at me
And only see the color of my face
And then there's those
That try to help, god knows
But always have to put me in my place
but i won't ask you to be color blind
'Cause if you pick the fruit
Then girl, you're sure to find...
The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use?
The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
And that's where it's at...
... now baby run and tell that!!
Run and tell that!
And if you come
And see the world i'm from
I bet your heart is gonna feel it too
Yeah. I could lie
But baby. Let's be bold
Vanilla can be nice
But if the truth be told...
The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use
The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
That's where it's at

Run and tell that!

Come here girl, This is my sister Li'l Inez!
Lil' Inez:
Oh I know Tracy Turnblad!
Good for you girl you got on the show!
You got that right.
Seaweed:
Oh you know she is you better show em' girl!
Lil' Inez:
I'm tired of coverin' up all my pride
I've got a new way of movin'
And i got my own voice
Seaweed:
So how can i help
But to shout and rejoice
Lil' Inez:
The people 'round here
Can barely pay their rent
They're "try'n to make dollar
Out 'a fifteen cent"
But we got a spirit
Money just cant buy
It's deep as a river
And soars to the sky!
'Seaweed:
I cant see
The reason it cant be
The kinda world where we all get our chance
The time is now
And we can show them how
To turn the music up and let's all dance
'Cause all things are equal
When it comes to love
Well, that ain't quite true
'Cause when push comes to shove...
The blacker the berry
The sweeter the juice
I could say it ain't so
But darlin', what's the use?
The darker the chocolate
The richer the taste
That's where it's at
Seaweed:
... no baby baby baby run and tell that
