    teacher man;
    look into the future
    tell us what you can
    what you can;
    tell us like an Obeah man..
    Voodoo man..
    Son of a preacher, preacher, preacher man
    we need your hand.

    I come to show you things
    you don't understand,
    don't understand.
    Like we're headed to des-truc-tion

    Every woman& man,
    woman & man.
    I know 'cause I'm the preacher man,
    teacher man.
    I look into the future
    tell you what you can
    why you can't,
    tell you like a wejee man,

    world in his hand/
    Son of a preacher,
    preacher, preacher man
    teacher man,
    tell us, tell us, what you can
    what you can

    If they tell you it's impossible
    then know that you can,
    know that you can
    'cause you heard it from the preacher man
    preacher man.
    Some niggahs acting
    like they scared of the Klan,

    scared of all the things
    they think they can,
    think they can,
    Three hundred fifty years
    and we still fighting the man
    fighting the man.
    People there's a struggle at hand,
    a struggle at hand.
    Races come together
    stop the hate in this land
    hate in this land.
    Take it from the preacher man,
    teacher man .
    Ladies in the house
    you better stick with your man,
    stick with your man
    don't go chasing after waterfalls
    you might get stuck in a jam,

    gun in their hand,
    from me to you cause I'm the preacher man,
    teacher man..
    See brother you got blood on your hand,

    Politicians in the big house
    doing what they can,
    what they can,
    to keep you blind
    and keep your head in the sand,
    head in the sand,
    whilst they and their cronies
    make a million grand,
    a million grand;
    and democracy is dead in this land
    dead in this land;
    and illusion and delusion
    wave their magical wand
    magical wand,
    yet the people wave their flags
    and still go clapping their hands,
    clapping their hands;
    proud to be American,
    A m-e-r-r-y can??
    but treated like aluminum cans,
    aluminum cans.
    The homeless and the hungry
    they're all over your land,
    over your land,
    while business chase the silicon band
    silicon band,
    and computers make you short of hand,
    short of hand.
    Yes everywhere I go they call me preacher man
    preacher man,
    tell us, tell us, what you can, what you can
    listen to the preacher man,
    preacher man,
    'cause he gots the world in his hand!!
