I can too They are moving They are moving They are moving They are moving 1 2 3 now we come to find work It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration Yo it was that time African Americans wanted to find Opportunities up north They wanted better jobs to prove their worth Discrimination, they’re escaping this Racism, lynching they ain’t taking this Bringing them to the entire nation Blacks move around It’s the migration Come on come on Feel it feel it Feel the migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration The migration across the U.S. 6 million blacks all went through this 1916 to 1970 They were ready To start new communities They went from rural to the urban side To the south and east sides In the north, still a divide Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, all across the nation, oh my the migration Come on come on Feel it feel it Feel the migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration Singing History Teachers break it down Left the South to go up North Lots of jobs so they went forth California Chicago, St. Louis, and Cincinnati, DC and Philly And the South got worried Blacks They left such in a hurry But the whites in the north had their own segregation, Come on feel the migration Yeah Can you see them moving? I can too It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration It was the great migration It’s such a sweet migration Such a time had come for them to move up The South had them fed up but they did not give up Brought their culture, thrived in new neighborhoods Northern companies gave blacks great incentives They left their roots behind Most feared for their lives in the South So got the heck out Commanded them to move Easy to see motivation For why they wanted the migration It was the Great Migration It’s such a sweet migration It was the Great Migration It’s such a sweet migration
