or
Fishbone

Born in the 1940s, my parents couldnt vote
X and king were on a march for power true
Black power that is panthers and their attitudes
Sport fresh new business suits, yeh, yeh, yeh !

Stricken with determination to rise above a slave,
The mayo men used firehoses
To spray the monkeys back in their cages
To spray the monkeys back in their cages

Round and around and around they go
The bus is goin mighty slow
Brothers in the back seat
Caucs in the front
People gettin hostile when I kill someone

Well the overlords thought it would be a good idea
To mix the black with the white
But if youre a fly in the buttermilk
Theyll chase you all through the night
So go ahead and burn your cross and rape our women in the night,
cause the day will come when your cream coated daughter is gonna be my wife.
