Rednecks - Randy Newman

Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show

 

With some smart ass 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 no Northern town

 

We keepin' the niggers down

 

We got no-necked oilmen from Texas

 

And good ol' boys from Tennessee

 

And college men from L S U

 

Went in dumb come out dumb too

 

Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes

 

Gettin' drunk every weekend at the barbecues

 

We keepin' the niggers down

 

We're rednecks we're rednecks

 

We don't know our ass from a hole in the ground

We're rednecks we're rednecks

 

We keepin' the niggers down

 

Now your northern nigger's a Negro

 

You see he's got his dignity

 

Down here we're too ignorant to realize

 

That the North has set the nigger 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

In the South-Side of Chicago 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 we're rednecks

 

We don't know our ass from a hole in the ground

We're rednecks we're rednecks

We keepin' the niggers down

 

We are keepin' the niggers down
