The Lyrics

DISCLAIMER: Warning! This parody is dark and morbid and contains graphic violence! It is set in the US during the 1920s at the height of KKK popularity. A night raid on a Black family in the South. I chose the term "Darkie" instead of "Blackie". "Blacky" or simply Andy b/c of the racial terminology for that time period.
As a rock came through the window
There came the hollers of the Knight crew
They broke into their small shack
Beat the wife and kids with wood bats
Loaded scat gun near the table
Couldn’t reach it, he wasn’t able
So he ran into the bathroom (for a razor)
He was struck down, it was his doom

Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie

(Darkie isn‘t OK)
(And neither is his family)
(The wife now is a widow)
(Shack was torched-where will they go? Lordy!)
(They broke into their small shack)
(Beat the wife and kids with wood bats)
(So he ran into the bathroom)
(He was struck down)
(It was his doom)

Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
He'd been hit by
He'd been killed by- a cruel ritual

So they took him through the back way
It was late-night, on a Friday
Lit a cross for flame intimidation
Then used his razor for his castration

Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie
Darkie isn’t OK
No, Darkie isn’t OK
It was foul play, Darkie

(Darkie isn‘t OK)
(And neither is his family)
(The wife now is a widow)
(Shack was torched-where will they go? Lordy!)
(They broke into their small shack)
(Beat the wife and kids with wood bats)
(So he ran into the bathroom)
(He was struck down)
(It was his doom)

(Darkie isn’t OK)
(No, Darkie isn’t OK)
(It was foul play, Darkie)
(He'd been hit by)
(He'd been killed by- a cruel ritual)

Such hate. Thugs in white sheets with guns, bats, and Bloodhounds!
Shoutin’, “N*gger gonna die tonight!!!”

HOW? (Was this still possible?)
(Darkie isn’t OK)
What a blow!
(And neither is his family)
What a blow!
(The wife is now a widow)
What a blow!
(Shack was torched- where will they go? Lordy!)
What a blow!
(They broke into their small shack)
What a blow!
(Beat the wife and kids with wood bats)
What a blow- so crazy!
(So he ran into the bathroom)
What a blow!
(He was struck down)
(It was his doom-Lordy!)
(Darkie isn’t OK)
He bled-out-badly!
(And neither is his family)
He bled-out-badly!
(The wife is now a widow)
He bled-out-badly!
(Shack was torched- where will they go? Lordy!)
Oh No!
(They broke into their small shack)
He bled-out-badly!
(Beat the wife and kids with wood bats)
No, No, No!!!
(So he ran into the bathroom)
Triple-K victim
(He was struck down)
(It was his doom-Lordy!)
HOW? (Was this still possible?)

Note: In NO WAY do I support the 33/5 (KKK) domestic terrorists of the US founded by Nathan Bedford Forrest post-Civil War.
