Rednecks (鄉下人) - Randy Newman

Written by:Randy Newman

Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show

 

With some smart a** New York Jew

 

And the Jew laughed at Lester Maddox

 

And the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too

 

Well he may be a fool but he's our fool

 

If they think they're better than him they're wrong

 

So I went to the park and I took some paper along

 

And that's where I made this song

 

We talk real funny down here

 

We drink too much and we laugh too loud

 

We're too dumb to make it in no northern town

 

And we're keepin' the niggers down

 

We got no necked oilmen from Texas

 

And good ol' boys from Tennessee

 

And colleges men from LSU

 

Went in dumb come out dumb too

 

Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes

 

Gettin' drunk every weekend at the barbecues

 

And they're keepin' the niggers down

 

We're rednecks rednecks

 

And we don't know our a**

From a hole in the ground

We're rednecks we're rednecks

 

And we're keeping the niggers down

 

Now your northern ni**a's a Negro

 

You see he's got his dignity

 

Down here we're too ignorant to realize

 

That the north has set the ni**a free

 

Yes he's free to be put in a cage

In Harlem in New York city

And he's free to be put in a cage

On the south side of Chicago

And the west side

And he's free to be put in a cage

In Hough in Cleveland

And he's free to be put in a cage

In East St Louis

And he's free to be put in a cage

In Fillmore in San Francisco

And he's free to be put in a cage

In Roxbury in Boston

 

They're gatherin' 'em up from miles around

 

Keepin' the niggers down

 

We're rednecks rednecks

 

And we don't know our a** from a hole in the ground

We're rednecks we're rednecks

 

And we're keeping the niggers down

 

And we're keeping the niggers down
