Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don't shoot me for saying mine

Everybody talk about racial equality
'Cos everybody's equal in the good Lord's eyes
But if I told you that God was black, what would you think of that?
I bet you wouldn't believe it

There's a self made prophet living right next to me
He said the Black Messiah's gonna come and set the whole world free
He looked at me with his evil eye and he prophesied
And he really believed it

He said a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
And he no liar, 'cos he has truly heard the word

Everybody talk about racial equality
But I'm the only honky living on an all black street
They knock me down 'cos they brown and I white
Like you wouldn't believe it

They say a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world

Everybody talk about racial equality
Everybody talk about equal rights
But white's white, black's black and that's that

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don't shoot me for saying mine

Everybody talk about racial equality
Yeah everybody talk about equal rights
But white's white, black's black, that's that
And that's the way you should leave it

Don't want no Black Messiah to come and set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world

Everybody got to show a little give and take
Everybody got to live with a little less hate
Everybody gotta work it out, we gotta sort it out

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don't shoot me for saying mine
