“Like This” by Some of All Parts

Malcolm X
It made us feel inferior; it made us feel inadequate made us feel helpless. And when we fell victims to this feeling of inadequacy or inferiority or helplessness, we turned to somebody else to show us the way.

Chorus
Never raise your fist like this, just forget
Never take the chance to get rich, just wish
Never mind all the good times, just forget
And don’t do it like that, just do it like this. (Just do it like this.)

5 Fifths
So I’m sitting
In the back of the bus,
Who’s more racist,
Them or us?
If you color,
Better stay in the lines,
Enslave the body,
Just control they minds.
Show the books,
But don’t want you to read,
Catch a boy trying,
Beat ‘em till he bleeds.
They try to tell me,
I’m only worth 3 fifths,
Can’t sell me off,
Because I’m priceless.
Call us ghetto,
Aint got no etiquette,
We ain’t sick,
Don’t need no medicine.
Try to tell me,
What I can and can’t teach,
Give me the pulpit,
Best believe I’m goin preach.

Los
Nevermind all the drama,
Stress of being blessed,
Never test, never try to contest or protest
An arrest when know it’s wrong,
Thinking about your life,
When you singing the song
Thinking about your future,
Feeling that gone,
Understand you not gonna be that strong,
So never try,
Never look to the sky,
Or ask why,
Never think coz you come across with no lie,
Never think you can,
Don’t think you’re the man,
Don’t plan with thought,
Just face it you’re a fan,
And understand you like dirt,
Always gettin stepped on,
But never getting hurt.

Chorus
Never raise your fist like this, just forget
Never take the chance to get rich, just wish
Never mind all the good times, just forget
And don’t do it like that, just do it like this (Just do it like this)


Malcolm X
Because you can't hate the roots of a tree, and not hate the tree. You can't hate your origin and not end up hating yourself. You can't hate Africa and not hate yourself.

You show me one of these people over here who has been thoroughly brainwashed who has a negative attitude toward Africa, and I'll show you one who has a negative attitude toward himself.

So, I point these things out to you brothers and sisters so you and I will know the importance in 1965 of being in complete unity with each other, harmony with each other, and not letting the man, maneuver us into fighting one another.

Chorus
Never raise your fist like this, just forget
Never take the chance to get rich, just wish
Never mind all the good times, just forget
And don’t do it like that, just do it like this (Just do it like this)
