Boyd Rice - Race Riot lyrics

What if they had a race riot?

And all different people, of all different races:

Black

White

Yellow

Brown

Stopped their stomping and screaming long enough to call a truce

And have a barbecue.



There's so damn many yellow people

The other races felt crowded

The white people

Made a profit on the barbecue

Which angered the black people

Who in turn vandalised the picnic area

Some brown people did a drive by shooting

And then some Jews walked on down and sold everybody guns

And then police came by to confiscate those guns

And at that moment when tensions were highest

When all the races were ready to resume the riot

A mullato newscaster came on the television news and said

The polls declared that everyone felt much safer now

The guns were confiscated

Wherupon the races turned their attentions from each other

And turned to their television sets

Each one shooting out cathode ray tubes like a bunch of Elvises

On peanut butter sandwiches.



All the races were temporarily so happy with this

That they cooled the interracial violence dig

Oh, but there were so damn many yellow people

That the other races felt crowded

And the white people

Made a profit, on an additional barbecue

Which angered the black people

Who in turn vandalised the picnic area.



And at that moment when tentions were highest

When all other races were ready to resume the riot

A mullato newscaster came on the television and said:

The latest polls declared that everybody felt much safer now,

That the guns were confiscated.
