The Lyrics

The idea came to me not so long ago. I don't mean to go SJW on everyone here, but I thought this was easy enough to write. Also, I do not endorse or condone the sentiments expressed in this song - this is mocking those people.
I wear my Sioux headdress on top of my head
And just below it, I've a bindi, blood red
I've never interacted with these cultures before
But I'll still use their elements and more

'Cause it's just clothing, not a thing,
Could be wrong with this
Though I'm white, it's all right,
Nothing is amiss,
POCs, just hate me,
I don't really care,
Dreadlocks are still my chosen style of hair

I don't care 'bout their thoughts, though they're offended,
If they want my respect, they've gotta earn it,
It may be racist, but I don't think it,
Baby, I'm just appropriative
Come on!

Give me a new hijab to place over my hair
I'll get a Buddhist tattoo right down there
Then speak AAVE without any care
While I hurl slurs into the air

'Cause it's just clothing, not a thing,
Could be wrong with this
Though I'm white, it's all right,
Nothing is amiss,
POCs, just hate me,
I don't really care,
Dreadlocks are still my chosen style of hair

I don't care 'bout their thoughts, though they're offended,
If they want my respect, they've gotta earn it,
It may be racist, but I don't think it,
Baby, I'm just appropriative

I don't care 'bout their thoughts, though they're offended,
If they want my respect, they've gotta earn it,
It may be racist, but I don't think it,
Baby, I'm just appropriative

Oh
White people wear it better
POCs don't know better
Oh
Why shouldn't I use their culture?
Why shouldn't I use their culture?
It's their opinion

I don't care 'bout their thoughts, though they're offended,
If they want my respect, they've gotta earn it,
It may be racist, but I don't think it,
Baby, I'm just appropriative

I don't care 'bout their thoughts, though they're offended,
If they want my respect, they've gotta earn it,
It may be racist, but I don't think it,
Baby, I'm just appropriative
Come on

Baby, I'm just appropriative
Come on
Baby, I'm just appropriative
