School Busing

Why do we have to fight
Just because you're black
And I'm white
Just a child here
Had nothing to do with hurting you
But our parents say we have to
Blacks aren't right

We brings in the dogs
You bring in the chains
Sirens are heard throughout the city
Ain't this cool man
We made the news man

Years later
We're laughing about it
prejudice wasn't what it was all about
We were just kids
Waiting to cause a commotion
Nobody really got hurt
Except for the parents
Who lost the fight
Busing is still going on
Our schools are now black and white
And us kids worked it out alright
The hell with our parents
They weren't right
