Black man work for the white man
Black man go for a ride
Black man pay
for a dollar a day
with the spit in his mouth and the hole in his side

White man drinkin his coffee
Black man drinkin his wine
Black man cry
and he scream at the sky
cause he madder than hell at the end of his line

Black man hide in the sewer
Black man climbin the trees
White man dead
with a hole in his head
or he broke up cryin and down on his knees

Black man live on the hilltop
White man down in the dust
Black man say
don’t live for today
and polish your Caddies before they rust

June 4, 1973
