(B. Walkenhorst)
Hot dot on a printed page
Airbrush every sign of age
Going under the surgeon's knife
Step daughter of a Stepford wife
That ain't what a woman is
That ain't what a woman is
Take a look at what you did
Granddaddy at the minstrel show
Watch the darkies frail the old banjo
Grandson at the strip club
A little racism with a different rub
It's the same difference with a different rub
Granddaddy never owned no slaves
Grandson never committed a rape
Just quiet men in their own time
But keeping quiet is it's own kind of crime
It's the same difference with a different rub
Bible-banger quoting verse declares
Blacks and women born cursed into
Wedding bands, slave rings
Martin Luther meet Martin Luther King
It's the same difference with a different rub
This ain't about no books that need burning
Less about flame and more about light
Freedom for one at the cost of another
This ain't about sin, it's about civil rights
That ain't what a woman is
