Ben Harper's, "Jah Work"
Misheard Lyrics:
Tell me do you really want to be cute and tan
'Cause a car speaks louder, be a polished man
Why would you settle for any other plan
You're a high class hopeful, American Man.
Original Lyrics:
Tell me do you really know your brother man
'Cause a heart speaks louder than a color can
Why would you even shake a brother's hand
If you're not going to help him stand?
