lyrics

My skin is brown; got a scruffy beard
One glance at me, and some people get scared
It’s not a bomb; It’s just my beer belly

Sittin’ by myself; pen in my hand
Stupid people think I’m writing terrorist plans
Yuh hadda chill hoss!; I’m just doing homework


Side of the road; I’m waiting on the bus
The cops pat me down cuz they think I’m selling drugs
“What’s in your pocket son?”; Officer it’s just a snack!

Then on the bus; I take a seat
But everyone moves away suspiciously
What’s up with that? I thought I bathed today!

I get profiled, wherever I go
Just what I did wrong, I suppose I’ll never really know
I guess I’m guilty of just being me...

I see a stranger, I smile and say “good day!”
They check their pockets, and then scamper away
Oh never mind! I was just being polite!

Then at a store, somewhere downtown
The security guard starts following me around
Cuz’ its obvious, I must be shoplifting!

I get profiled, wherever I go
Just what I did wrong, I tell you I don’t really know
I guess I’m guilty of just being me...

I get profiled, when I leave my house
I never really understand what it’s all about
I wonder why can’t they just leave me be?

There’s no excuse for ignorance!
