    Lyrics

    Mr. Backlash, Mr. Backlash
    Just who do think I am
    You raise my taxes, freeze my wages
    And send my son to Vietnam

    You give me second class houses
    And second class schools
    Do you think that alla colored folks
    Are just second class fools
    Mr. Backlash, I'm gonna leave you
    With the backlash blues

    When I try to find a job
    To earn a little cash
    All you got to offer
    Is your mean old white backlash
    But the world is big
    Big and bright and round
    And it's full of folks like me
    Who are black, yellow, beige and brown
    Mr. Backlash, I'm gonna leave you
    With the backlash blues

    Mr. Backlash, Mr. Backlash
    Just what do you think I got to lose
    I'm gonna leave you
    With the backlash blues
    You're the one will have the blues
    Not me, just wait and see
