Was on everyone's mind,
Was understood by most that equal'ty,
Was a matter of time,
Then eventu'lly everyone agreed,
Then the laws were improved,
Then made a day of MLK's b-day,
Then the discussion was pretty much moot,
Now the talk's still about inequal'ty,
Now of money, not race,
Now it's not right if someone has no chance,
Now of boosting their place.
Ask if race is equal,
Ask what the world should look like with the Love,
Asked by him from the Amer'can people.
