    Lyrics

    He was not or never had been in favor
    of setting r people free
    if it wasn't 4 the 13th Amendment
    we woulda been born in slavery
    He was not or never had been in favor
    of letting us vote so u c...
    Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said
    "U cannot escape from history"

    CHORUS
    Like the snow comin' down the mountain
    that landed on Wounded Knee
    nobody wants 2 take the weight-
    the responsibility

    Hear the joyous sound of freedom
    The Harlem Renaissance
    Hear Duke Ellington and his band
    kick another jungle jam
    Ooh, do u wanna dance?
    Who's that lurking in the shadows?
    Mr. John Hammond with his pen in hand...
    sayin' "Sign ur kingdom over 2 me
    and b known throughout the land!"
    But, u ain't got no money, U ain't got no cash,
    So u sign yo name and he claims innocence
    just like every snowflake in an avalanche...

    CHORUS
    Like the snow comin' down the mountain
    that landed on Wounded Knee
    nobody wants 2 take the weight-
    the responsability
