"White House Blues"


The White House Blues is a bad situation
It all began with the birth of our nation
Here, we are as sisters and brothers
Can the president be of just one color?
How could I quess... how would I know
How many colors are in the rainbow
The vice-president, and the president too
Have always been White, that's The White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on

I've been thinking for such a long time
Will this country that I consider mine
Go ahead and break the color-rules
And release me from The White House Blues
Don't be shy, let's give it a try
Don't give an off-the-wall alibi
Choose an Indian, a Black or a Jew
And chase away my White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on [repeat]

I had a a dream about a great decision
Will I ever see it on the television?
Come on people, let's hear the good news
Discriminate against The White House Blues
The people are running to and fro
Trying to figure out, trying to know
Which of the super men, they will choose
To give a taste of The White House Blues
Run brother, run, just as fast as you can
You're just as good as any other man
I truly believe you've got nothing to lose
But you must overcome The White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on

Bush and Yeltin met at the summit
Now I'm gonna have to blow my trumpet
Four hundred years, we have been abused
But all we got is The White House Blues
The American flag, is it color-blind?
"Put all the color boys on the front-line"
Just go ahead and pay yo' dues
And die for your country with The White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on

I don't like fussin' and I don't like fightin'
I don't like gossip and back-biting
Many good men have been falsely accused
And it all began with The White House Blues
I don't like the goods that you're selling
I don't even like your watermelon
I don't pick cotton and I don't shine shoes
And I don't accept The White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on [repeat]

I hope we can save this country of ours
Not enough of brave men, too many cowards
They don't take a stand, they don't even choose
Nothing but nothing, but The White House Blues
They may be stupid, they may be dumb
Some people don't care, some are Uncle Toms
What is the matter?... I'm gonna give you a clue
They've got a bad, bad case of The White House Blues

[Chorus:]
There's got to be a change in this nation
You and I must make it happen, come on, etc.
