Everybody got the right to speak their mind 
So don't shoot me for saying mine 
Everybody talking 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 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 talking about racial equality 
You hear everybody talking about equal rights 
But white's white, black's black and 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
