David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 16

Album
Name of Song: Racism was invented

Racism, racism,
An invention of fiends,
Designed to bring chaos
to enact evil dreams.

Completely ridiculous,
We are spirits in kind,
The body we appear in
is not something we signed.

Get off this racism,
It’s invented by a few,
Hate makes them money,
And it sticks you like glue.

Chorus
Do unto others,
As you would want them to you,
Racism is the bait
And you’ll stick to that glue.
If you so want a fight,
Go walk for a year,
Meet some new people,
Share your own cheer.

People are people,
Cultures are frail,
Destroying the spirit
Is what’s under their veil.

Don’t take their bait,
Choosing bodies is grim,
We’re usually glad to just get one
It’s all done on a whim.

Racism the starter
to wars far and wide,
Don’t fall for their hate,
Or you’ll never stop crying.

Chorus
Do unto others,
As you would want them to you,
Racism is the bait
And you’ll stick to that glue.
If you so want a fight,
Go walk for a year,
Meet some new people,
Share your own cheer.

Start talking to people,
Ignore how they look,
You’ll find they have feelings,
And love to share what they cook.

For god’s sake make peace,
At least for a year,
In that way we can choose
to share food and some beer.

Chorus
Do unto others,
As you would want them to you,
Racism is the bait
And you’ll stick to that glue.
If you so want a fight,
Go walk for a year,
Meet some new people,
Share your own cheer.

Chorus
Do unto others,
As you would want them to you,
Racism is the bait
And you’ll stick to that glue.
If you so want a fight,
Go walk for a year,
Meet some new people,
Share your own cheer.
