The Lyrics

I was too young, and too northern, to see Jim Crow when he was alive, and thus had the luxury of learning about him from the history books.
(Jim Crow, Jim Crow)

Now when I was a young boy,
A horror I would see
When I took a look
At our history
(Jim Crow) Separate but equal?
(Jim Crow) Slavery's ugly sequel!
(After the plantation,
Then came segregation
Jim Crow)

A gal named Parks
She caused a lot of fusses
'Cause Jimmy went and shoved her
Into the backs of busses
(Jim Crow) He was made by donkeys
(Jim Crow) Only good for honkeys
(After the plantation,
Then came segregation
Jim Crow)

(Bad Jim) There ain't no fair trial
(Racist Jim) The lynch mob loved his style
(Bigot Jim) His hate for blacks was real
(Evil Jim) Won't let them get a meal
He lived his life for racism

[quasi-disco instrumental]
Sep'rate bathrooms!
He's a southern man
They're sick of you, Jim Crow

Now, racism
Can raise its ugly head
I have to look at Jimmy
To make sure he's still dead
(Jim Crow) No longer is he lawful
(Jim Crow) Nothing short of awful
(After the plantation,
Then came segregation
Didn't like miscegenation)
Was a stain upon our nation
Jim Crow

But it was the law of the land! You can't change the law of the land!

And homosexuality is an offence in Jamaica, for which one can be fined and/or confined. That doesn't change the fact that it's oppression of people.

And we can't prosecute Germans either. The Final Solution was the law of the land!
