JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

playAngry White Guy

from noplace like nowhere


Angry white guy
biting the bullet
biting his tongue
biding his time
ringing the bell
stacking the deck
throwing the curve
drawing the line
all things being equal
all things being equal
all things being equal
they're not

Angry white guy
pounding the beat
pounding the man
beating the rap
digging the ditch
digging it deep
releasing the dogs
springing the trap
all things being equal
all things being equal
all things being equal
they're not
After all isn't God
an angry white guy?
angry white guy
angry white guy

After digging the gig at the pig we go hit the shindig
out in the burb-claves where the homes are big
and we're mixing it up and we're dancing it up
and a cocktail a cocktail I'm laughing it up
cause everyone there's just a little bit tight
and everybody's white
and they're leaning to the right
and that's when I hear you talking this shite
about those people in the ghetto
how they ain't living right
how they're LAZY down on the scary side of town
how it's their own damn fault
how they keep THEMSELVES down
and my wide smile became a frown
and I had to slip up your trip and lay it down.
This is a land of opportunity not a land of charity
and those who have immunity
wanna broaden this disparity
do you hear me clearly -
got some question about my clarity
am I too light to be so pious -
too white for this analogy?
well the great reverend so and so I know I'm not
but I recognize
all the breaks that I got
cause my skin gets me in
and my skin gets me by
and my skin helps me win
and I don't have to wonder why
there are some people who have to grow up
so much harder than I do
and If I grew up in the project
things might not be so cool
no matter how hard I worked,
no matter how much I did
to keep my language and color and heritage hid
so you ROLL up your windows
and pretend that you don't see them
then you LECTURE us all on equality and freedom
how I wish a dark skin would grow all over YOU
we'd see who's got the same opportunity as who

All things being equal
all things being equal
all things being equal
they're not
After all isn't God
an angry white guy?
