Another guilty white boy, won't you turn me in?
Always had it easy, charge me for my sins

Ain't been through the slavery, ain't been through the cotton fields
Through the back of a bus oh, cos I'm guilty

Ain't been through the slavery, ain't been through the cotton fields
Through the back of a bus oh, cos I'm ooh guilty

Broken bones and bruises, daddy brought the ball this far
But living on his shoulders, he passed it with his car

I've been through the little league, a 9 years old in the social arena
Oh baby gonna beat beat beat em, cos I'm guilty

I've been through the little league, a 9 years old in the social arena
Oh baby gonna beat beat beat em, cos I'm guilty

Always had it easy my future's in the mail
Every reason to succeed, every chance to fail
Ain't got nothing on nobody, no no no no no no no
If I found that opportunity, I lost my soul
Grandpa saw world war ii, old man saw vietnam
I spent my allowance just to see mauthausen
And now I'm guilty

I've been through the little league, a 9 years old in the social arena
Oh baby gonna beat beat beat em, well I'm guilty

Ain't been through the slavery, ain't been through the cotton fields
Through the back of a bus oh, cos I'm guilty

You wonder why we fall on top of everyone
You wonder why we're no fun
Cos we're guilty
