Fishbone - Slow Bus Movin' (Howard Beach Party)

Born in the 1940's my parents couldn't vote
X and king were on a march for power true
Black power that is panther's and their attitudes
Sport fresh new business suits yeah yeah yeah

Stricken with determination to rise above a slave
The mayo men used firehouses
To spray the monkeys back in their cages
To spray the monkeys back in their cages

'Round and around and around they go
The bus is goin' mighty slow
Brothers in the back seat caucus in the front
People gettin' hostile wanna kill someone

Well the overlords thought it would be a good idea
To mix the black with the white
But if you're a fly in the buttermilk
They'll chase you all through the night

So go ahead and burn your cross
And rape our women in the night
'Cause the tables are turned when your cream
Coated daughter is gonna be my wife

Round and around and around they go
The bus is goin' mighty slow
Brothers in the back seat caucus in the front
People gettin' hostile wanna kill someone

She come around
There you go
