Imani Coppola - Woke Up White lyrics

I woke up white today
And everything went right today
I woke up white today and everything was a-ok

I woke up Caucasian
Had a realization
I should take advantage of
This fucked up situation

I walk up in a store
I don't get hard looks no more
I'll go rob a bank real fast
And surely they'll blame your black ass
Black ass, hey
Black ass
Black ass

I woke up white today, everything went right today
Everyone said hi to me, 'cause I exude excellency
I'm starched and yuppified, no way I make you terrified
I'm-a go electric slide my way up to the upper east side
East side
East side
East side

I'm the embodiment of a fine upstanding citizen
And the cops just drive on by, even though I'm super high
I know black folks real well 'cause I watch me some Dave Chapelle
In a fancy restaurant they don't assume I want chicken
Chicken
Chicken
Chicken

Hey hey
I woke up white today
Yeah, woke up white today
Oh, white today

I woke up white today, everything went right today
I woke up white today, everything was a-ok
I woke up caucasian, had a realization
I should take advantage of this fucked up situation
Hey hey
I woke up white today
Yeah, I woke up white today
Oh, white today
Oh, I woke up white today
