Thin Lizzy – Half Caste lyrics

Halfcaste (from Man and His music Volume II)

I got a girl in Brixham town
Her daddy don't like me hangin' 'round
The boy ain't black, the boy is brown
Don't he know it's a halfcaste town

Big smoke
Big smoke
Big smoke
Big smoke

The boy is halfcaste

I got a girl up near Richmond way
Her daddy don't like me to lead the girl astray
The brown boy is born to serve he say
Don't he know it's a different day

In the big smoke
No joke
Big smoke
I like it
Big smoke
Big smoke

Mister, I'm halfcaste
You see, I'm halfcaste
I got no class
You see, I'm halfcaste
