I'm not like the other girls in this show
I'm something of a sore thumb
I'm starting to think that I'm dif'rent
And I suspect I know how come
My complexion stands out and my voice foes as well
And in case you have n't noticed
I'm black as hell
It's an obligatory part of ev'ry new musical
It's the random black girl singin' the soul

Ev'ry show must have an ensemble
With out it things wouldn't be right
And ev'ry crowd needs at least one person
Who doesn't hapen to be white
And that girl is usually me
Seems like O'm just filling a quota
Any time I ever have lines they're
Yes'mand yes'sir and no sa'
When it comes to the plot I play no significant role
I'm just a random black girl singin' the soul

And I conduct with my hands
And I’ll squinch up my eyes
And I'll open my mouth unbelievably wide
And at the end of the song when its time to let go
I'll give'em a dose of my crazy vibrato
Why couldn't I be cast for a part in the Color Purple
'Stead of the random black girl singin' the soul

My agent gave me advice
Those words I'll never forget, he said
Don't think you'll ever be cast as Eponine or Cosette
But I guess things always could be worse
When it comes to my Broadway station at least I'm not cursed
Enough to have been born asian
Then I'd be stuck in Miss Saigon
Dancin' on a pole 'stead of the random black girl singin' the soul

The desingers can't light me
Director don't know my name
And the make-up artist thinks that we all wear the same
Shade and Mister stage manager thinks I got too much sass
And costumer don't know what to do with my ol' black hair
Oh! Maybe I should audition for American Idol
They lobe the random black girl singin' the soul

So what does this song change
Well not a relevant thing
But you gotta be thinkin' to yourself
Goddamn, that Sista cansing!
Don't you hate it when song are so self referential
I'm just a random black girl singin' the
Don't stop me know, cause baby, I'mon a roll
I'm just a random black girl singin' the
I can me anetire phrase out of one syllable
Cause I'm Random Black Girl singin' the soul!
