Lyrics

Skinhead
Dead head
Everybody
Gone bad
Situation
Aggravation
Everybody
Allegation
In the suite
On the news

Everybody
Dog food
Bang bang
Shock dead
Everybody’s
Gone mad
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me
Hate me
You can never
Break me
Will me
Thrill me
You can never
Kill me
Do me
Sue me
Everybody
Do me
Kick me
Hate me
Don’t you black or white me
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
Your rapin’ me of my pride
Oh for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfil its prophecy
Set me free

Skinhead
Dead head
Everybody
Gone bad
Trepidation
Speculation
Everybody
Allegation
In the suite
On the news
Everybody
Dog food
Black man
Black mail
Throw the brother
In jail
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible ’cause you ignore me
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwin’ me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skinhead
Deadhead
Everybody
Gone bad
Situation
Speculation
Everybody
Litigation
Beat me
Bash me
You can never
Trash me
Hick me
Kick me
You can never
Get me
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skinhead
Deadhead
Everybody’s
Gone bad
Situation
Segregation
Everybody
Allegation
In the suite
On the news
Everybody
Dog food
Kick me
Hate me
Don’t you
Wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
With deep in the fire
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
I’m here to remind you
All I wanna say is that…
(Continue ’til end)
