In the Streets of America ....

    As you strike  the match to a mattress
    to burn down the row of stores
    as you throw that bottle towards the row of police
    evil spills from your pores

    You point your finger at the  white man
    four more on the hand pointing at you
    Blame it on the black man ?
    your  own hatred's  bleeding  through

    What are you doing in the streets anyway
    do your kids know where you are ?
    Or is it your kids out there in the riot somewhere
    reflecting  who you really are

    Hatred is flowing over like a toilet in
    the subway  bathroom  stall
    Or is that just a reflection in the bowl  of you
    answering to the call

    Anybody want to add a verse............?

    Though I know we've made it hard for you, you shine brightly like new money.
    I'm grateful to the Lord for you, you'll always be my honey. smile
