    Michael Jackson


    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Situation, aggravation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Bang bang, shot dead
    Everybody's gone mad

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Beat me, hate me
    You can never break me
    Will me, thrill me
    You can never kill me
    Jew me, sue me
    Everybody do me
    Kick me, kike me
    Don't you black or white me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Tell me what has become of my life
    I have a wife and two children who love me
    I am the victim of police brutality, no
    I'm tired of being the victim of hate
    You're raping me of my pride
    Oh, for God's sake
    I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
    Set me free

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Trepidation, speculation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Black man, blackmail
    Throw the brother in jail

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Tell me what has become of my rights
    Am I invisible because you ignore me?
    Your proclamation promised me free liberty, no
    I'm tired of being the victim of shame
    They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
    I can't believe this is the land from which I came
    You know I really do hate to say it
    The government don't wanna see
    But if Roosevelt was living
    He wouldn't let this be, no, no

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Situation, speculation
    Everybody litigation
    Beat me, bash me
    You can never trash me
    Hit me, kick me
    You can never get me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Some things in life they just don't wanna see
    But if Martin Luther was living
    He wouldn't let this be, no, no

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody's gone bad
    Situation, segregation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Kick me, kike me
    Don't you wrong or right me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Huddie Ledbetter




    Lord, in a bourgeois town
    It's a bourgeois town
    I got the bourgeois blues
    Gonna spread the news all around
    Home of the brave, land of the free
    I don't wanna be mistreated by no bourgeoisie

    Lord, in a bourgeois town
    Uhm, the bourgeois town
    I got the bourgeois blues
    Gonna spread the news all around
    Well, me and my wife we were standing upstairs
    We heard the white man say "I don't want no nig.gers up there"
    Lord, in a bourgeois town
    Uhm, bourgeois town

    I got the bourgeois blues
    Gonna spread the news all around
    Well, them white folks in Washington they know how
    To call a colored man a ni.gger just to see him bow
    Lord, it's a bourgeois town
    Uhm, the bourgeois town

    I got the bourgeois blues
    Gonna spread the news all around
    I tell all the colored folks to listen to me
    Don't try to find you no home in Washington, DC
    'Cause it's a bourgeois town
    Uhm, the bourgeois town
    I got the bourgeois blues
    Gonna spread the news all around

    "Interrupting all programs"

    The Clash...





    Interrupting all programs
    This is radio clash from pirate satellite
    Orbiting your living room,
    Cashing in the bill of rights
    Cuban army surplus or refusing all third lights
    This is radio clash on pirate satellite
    This sound does not subscribe
    To the international plan
    In the psycho shadow of the white right hand
    Then that see ghettology as an urban Vietnam
    Giving deadly exhibitions of murder by napalm
    This is radio clash tearing up the seven veils
    This is radio clash please save us, not the whales
    This is radio clash underneath a mushroom cloud
    This is radio clash
    You don't need that funeral shroud
    Forces have been looting
    My humanity
    Curfews have been curbing
    The end of liberty
    Hands of law have sorted through
    My identity
    But now this sound is brave
    And wants to be free - anyway to be free
    This is Radio clash on pirate satellite
    This is not free Europe
    Not an armed force network
    This is Radio Clash using audio ammunition
    This is Radio Clash can we get that world to listen?
    This is Radio Clash using aural ammunition
    This is Radio Clash can we get that world to listen?
    This is Radio Clash on pirate satellite
    Orbiting your living room,
    Cashing in the bill of rights
    This is radio Clash on pirate satellite
    This is radio Clash everybody hold on tight
    A-riggy diggy dig dang dang
    Go back to urban 'nam
