The Lyrics

I wrote this in the satirical style in which Tom Lehrer wrote "I wanna go back to Dixie", to mock the way that Southern whites kept blacks in line for nine decades after they were freed legally. Six decades beyond that, Progressives have invented the term in my song title to bestow guilt on contemporary whites as having benefitted from that suppression long ago. I chose this song, from the 1942 movie "Holiday Inn" about a group of white strangers temporarily snowed-in at an upscale winter resort during hard times for most Americans, to channel imagined thoughts of a current white supremacist.
I'm dreaming of old white priv'lege:
Justice was done by noose to tow,
Where white street cops bristled
When swill-men whistled,
For fear able bucks might grow.

I'm scheming for some white priv'lege,
With upp'ty darkies' yards alight.
May each blaze be scary and fright-
en. May all our priv'leges be white.

Be thankful that no such person still lives in the USA ... right?
