    yo ******!!!
    why you celebratin'?
    walkin' around pontificatin'
    on what a glorious day this iz
    the fourth of Jew-lie

    no really this ain't no anti-semitic piece
    I was just phonetically speakin'
    ya dig?

    but dig,
    how can you celebrate a helliday
    when you was still shackled and chained
    name changed brain rearranged
    body maimed...if...
    yo black *** wasn't pickin' no cotton

    I figure you must have forgotten that
    around that time you wuz still 3/5ths
    but you must have forgotten that ****
    in the smoke of too many spliffs, or
    if yo *** ain't ghetto in the *** of
    too many "yes bosses" trying
    to crack glass ceilings and darken the
    board room / so you can vroom vroom
    in a jaguar to a suburb far far
    away from your folks...see...

    "we's alls ain't dat bad"

    negro ya lost find yaself in your living room
    and still walking around in mental circles

    "yo, ******" why you sell a bratin'?

    mouth watering for succulent bar b qued
    memories of rockets blariing and fireworks
    and cotton fields and leather whips and swinging
    low and sweet chariots and thick as lariets
    that hung brothers from trees...****** please
    this is only a quick thought on how your mind has been
    bought and you weren't aware that you were selling
    it / so blow your **** nose look at all the ****
    around you and start smelling it...

    just because it looks like a rose don't mean it's a
    rose / so i guess ****** now you know...

    ya better hurry...the ship too the new world is leaving ya
    (ha ha)
