everyday people

um. what color are Arabs? is it okay to call all these, um, peoples Arabs (or Persians)? i mean, be real, middle-easterners is too damn long — we need a color from the color box. but ... i see a slight problem here. if yellow peoples are asians & red peoples are indians (american version) & white peoples are republicans & black peoples are african somethings & green peoples are martians & brown peoples are mexicans — what color are these Arab-Persian-Middle-Country peoples supposed to be?

i think we need a crayola ruling on this one.

Everyday People

mp3 courtesy of Pierrot's Folly

Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the baker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in

I am everyday people, yeah yeah

There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together

I am no better and neither are you
We are the same whatever we do
You love me you hate me you know me and then
You can't figure out the bag l'm in

I am everyday people, yeah yeah

There is a long hair that doesn't like the short hair
For bein' such a rich one that will not help the poor one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha-we got to live together

There is a yellow one that won't accept the black one
That won't accept the red one that won't accept the white one
And different strokes for different folks
Oh sha sha-

I ... a m  e v e r y d a y  p e o p l e.
