The Lyrics

Rap is black,
That's why my face was black!
So hey, don't hate!
It was the 80's--wait--uh-oh!

What can I do?
'Cause my-y-y-y-y
State was so blue!

My governor's race
Coulda been in blackface!
Now it's some big crime!
Run DMC fans, I'm like--uh-oh!

What can I do?
'Spose I-I-I-I-I
Shoulda sprayed blue!

Front page news,
I've too much to lose,
We've got too much power! Waaw!

If I step down
A kid's party clown
Gets fifteen bucks an hour!!!

Timing's bad,
But what fun we had!
Sent back my hood today, oh no!

What can I do?
I'm whi-i-i-i-ite
And feelin' blue!

The optics are skewed!
I was oh, so young! Yow!!!
If my A.G.'s
As racist as me
Then we might get hung!!!

Blacks react,
And Reverend Al attacked!
Get out my State!
It's Confederate--shit, no...

What can I do?
'Cause my-y-y-y-y
Blackface is blue!
'Cause my-y-y-y-y
Blackface is blue!
'Cause my-y-y-y-y
Blackface is blue!

You might want to go easy on this issue, Gomez, lest you keep cannibalizing one Dem politician after another. There as about a 20 year period when the in thing to was to "transgress the boundaries" ..... ma-a-a-a-a-an! And who were the people who thought this way? It wasn't the squares, ma-a-an. It wasn't the (screw up face in fright mask of contempt) MORAL MAJORITY prudes!! No, it was the hip crowd, the future progressives who were doing this, just as they were the one who were committing serial sexual harassment

Thanks for the feedback, but no thanks, I don't go easy on racism. EVER.

A woman's body including her newborn baby is nobody else's business, but a man's face is public and must be controlled by the masses of 35 years later. What if a male politician made up is face or cut off his parts to look like a woman?

Well, then it's nobody's business! That's why you're not allowed to ask about my driving record anymore.

Yes, and could we please leave my pubic face out of the conversation?
