The Lyrics

All I want for everyone is the NORTH American dream. Work hard, Get along, Have a happy life with God as my beacon and guidance, and faith behind me wherever I go. A man and a wife. A marriage in God's eyes. Children raised with love and caring, encouragement, and hope. No one pushing the race card for personal advancement, and no one hiding it to keep others from achieving their dreams. AM I THE MINORITY HERE??? Everyone has an agenda. Mine is fairness, freedom and equality. What is yours?? This parody slams everyone in society today. I have my many faults too, so I'm in here as well. WHY CAN'T WE JUST ALL GET ALONG AND HELP EACH OTHER HONESTLY?.... just saying....as I say every day.. it goes like this... Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory. for ever and ever. Amen.
there's a problem with the clothes you're wearing
with your undies sticking out the back
could you pull em up a little bit higher, ?
as my little girl can see your crack
the boys and you hangin out with no money
blaming all the folks with the jobs, that's so funny
next day, please say, earn pay
anyway did you say am I the minority??

makes me glad to see the young are striving
sending resumes they live with smiles
hope the companies that they're applying
give them chances let them run for miles
if the hiring has to be incremental
just half a chance it could be instrumental
not punks, not hunks, that's junk
funny but am I the minority?

Oh, it doesn't matter what they say in the papers
because opression is a deadly scene
there's some new kids around
and with brains they abound
with equality they all succeed
practice it in thought and deed...

how about a kid with tats and piercing
did you know they practice loving God?
want a life, a marriage, and a little chance to be happy
and be thankful earning what they got?
don't you listen to the hate from the speakers
you get more mileage hearing God from a speaker
lets make, your faith, always
baby so am I the minority??

the parody is written bout the things I'm seein
and the things I think are very wrong
love and caring among human beings
has been missing from our lives too long
focus being on the things of the devil
pray to Jesus baby and you'll soon always revel
this way, today, always pays
funny but am I the minority????

if everybody's workin it will be found
maybe I won't be the minority...

I don't think you're the minority here. I really liked the parody and I liked the prayer and the references to Jesus and God.

Food for thought, Malcolm! Clever use of OS.

Lord HiGUNs, does all that include ~white meat~, Sir ? ?

Some of this was on the mark -- I still think piercings are ridiculous and some people need to pull their pants up -- but as a non-liberal, are you in the minority? You betcha!
