Prejudice

By Jim Ittenbach - 2001


Verse I:  

It’s hard to believe that the child that just smiled at me 

Could grow up hating me 

‘Cause his parents and his friends are gonna convince him 

You can’t trust him ‘cause the color of his skin 

You can’t trust him ‘cause the color of his skin 

 

Verse II: 

Now prejudice don’t come naturally  

It’s something you gotta learn 

So when you try to see why it’s filled our history  

Don’t go pointin no finger at me 

Said don’t go pointin’ no finger at me 

 

Bridge: 

You can’t fix the problem if you won’t face the facts 

There’s more to this picture than what you see 

Well you ain’t no better than that redneck with his cross  

If you see me as your enemy 

 

Chorus: 

Then your prejudice, prejudice, prejudice, prejudice 

prejudice, prejudice, prejudice, prejudice 

Lead: 

Repeat Verse 

 

Verse III: 

That boy don’t stand a chance if you feed him all of that 

You’re lockin’ his mind in shackles and chains 

Tell him there’s no end to what he could achieve  

He just might surprise you who he’d be 

Said he just might surprise you who he’d be 

 

Chorus: 

Repeat 

 

Bridge (speed change) 

He jus might surprise you who he’d be 

He just might surprise you who he’d be
