I’ve Had Enough Lyrics
If I were brown, they’d wanna put me in the ground
And if I was black, you know they’d shoot me, shoot me in the back
Don’t believe their lies cuz we’re all created equal
Now take your hopes and prayers and leave em’ at the steeple
Cuz you ain’t nothin’ but scorned
No, they don’t see your life worth being mourned
If I were a woman, I’d be paid an unfair wage
I was the daughter of a poor man, I could be raped with no outcry of rage
And my rapist could see his baby three times a week
And justice would take away my right to speak
Cuz your life’s worth less than the unborn
Yeah, as far as they’re concerned you ain’t nothin’ but a whore
Well, they say America’s a white Christian nation
Well, I think these bigots better double-check their salvation
Cuz all our days are numbered, numbered and few, yeah
I’ve had enough. How about you?
Yeah, I’ve had enough. How about you?
Yeah, I’ve had enough… How about you?
