God Made Us All (Ode to the Negro Race)

Lord Invader
Lingua: Inglese



If you are a Negro you can plainly see
That you're bound to suffer misery and tyranny
If you are a Negro you can plainly see
That you're bound to suffer misery and tyranny
But we all should be race conscious and always be
Living in unity and tranquillity.

For God made us all, and in him we trust
Nobody in this world is better than us.

We are not against the White people in any way
For they made us what we are today
We must offer thanks to Abraham Lincoln
Queen Victoria and Booker T. Washington
We are now living in a world of civilization
And yet there is so much discrimination.

For God made us all, and in him we trust
Nobody in this world is better than us.

Now listen what I am outlining to you
Negroes fought in World Wars One and Two
Some lose their lives, others lose they hand
We fough gallantly for the United Nation
So if we Negroes are good enough to fight
I don't see why we can't have our equal right.

For God made us all, and in him we trust
Nobody in this world is better than us.

Yes we ought to unite with one another
As the scripture say to love thy neighbor
If you are a Jew or an Italian
A Negro or a subject of Great Britain
This is what I want you to realize.
Six feet of earth make us all of one size.

For God made us all, and in him we trust
Nobody in this world is better than us.

Yes I heard this speaking of democracy
That is only diplomacy and hypocrisy
It is about time this should be cut out
The way they treat the Negroes down South
In my opinion it is a burning shame
Like they want to bring back slavery again.

For God made us all, and in him we trust
Nobody in this world is better than us.
