Sam Cooke said "Change gonna come,"
but all I hear is a distant hum.
I hear the hum of the future, but others believe it's a rumor.
"America isn't gonna change," they say as they are beaten like dogs on the streets.
But I still tell them the beats of the future is getting louder!
pull aside and then toss aside as I am beaten for my race.
But I learned to embrace my race because I am strong.
Strong enough to wait for change.
Where racial prejudice is a thing of the past,
Where we come to accept our past,
Where we stop sugar coating things like It wasn't so bad
but things was bad
to have to be drag
to protect someone else's flag
during a time that wasn't so rad
But I was kinda glad
that we came to protect their flag
glad that we could grow together to be rad dads
but a few things need to be re-arrange for
change can come.
