The Lyrics

In the 80's I was,
Chillin with ghetto girls
I had some fresh Nikes
They wore Converse

I loved her and she knew but
She wouldn't give me none
She had a funky perm
And wore some make up

My look was very phony
I needed some advice
I needed to be bolder
So I watched Miami Vice

But she wanted some dark meat
She only dated brothers
Her love is not for my kind
I had to just ask

Why am I white
Can't have black friends
Why am I white
Light colored skin
Why am I white
I look like slim shady
Wish I could have her brown love, yeah
Might as well dissaper

I wish that I was black cause
It would be simple then
I could change my name from Jed
To MC Ben

I don't have bling-bling quite yet
I can't play ball like Mike
I'm just a preppie true blue
Can't make a fuss but

I want that girl to hold me
Although I'm white like rice
Do any thing to hold her
I'd dress like Vanilla Ice

But she wanted some dark meat
She only dated brothers
Her love is not for my kind
I had to just ask


I wanted to get her
I went out and bought a jacket of the leather
I even bought a coogi sweater
Said she wanted a black boy forever, thats what she'd say
I had to show white boys are better, She had to know
She needed better and I could provide that
Oh girl please, I'll be her cracker for a snack
I hope that she dreams of me
Just thinks of me
This songs for her, she's why I sing

Girl you know you are my world and
You be girl and I'll be boy and
I won't stop, You're the reason I wrote this song
