Lyrics

I took my baby
On a saturday bang
Boy is that girl with you
Yes we’re one and the same
Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

They print my message
In the saturday sun

See more lyrics

I had to tell them
I ain’t second to none
And I told about equality
And it’s true
Either you’re wrong or you’re right
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
So when the going gets rough
I ain’t scared of your brother
I ain’t scared of no sheets
I ain’t scare of nobody
Girl when the goin’ gets mean

(Rap by L.T.B.)
Protection
For gangs, clubs
And nations
Causing grief in
Human relations
It’s a turf war
On a global scale
I’d rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it’s not about races
Just places
Faces
Where your blood comes from
Is where your space is
I’ve seen the bright get duller
I’m not going to spend my life
Being a color

(Michael)
Don’t tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white
I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white
I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my brother
It don’t matter if you’re black or white
Alright, alright
Ooh, ooh
Alright
Yea, yea, yea now
Alright, alright
Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now
Alright
It’s black, it’s white
It’s tough for you to get by
It’s black, it’s white, whoo
It’s black, it’s white
It’s tough for you to get by
It’s black, it’s white, whoo
