she taught us to stand up

and demand respect for what we did 

the Queen of soul reached  us

and her voice will always live

and we would sing along 

and hum those great songs

Aretha the Preacher of soul has moved on

to be with God and the heavenly choir 

where her Spirit belongs  

God be with you Aretha 

and thanks for your fire

the power of your voice

and soul will always inspire
