Battleground - Joe Jackson

    Black nigger white nigger standing in the dark
    Listen to the rhythm of the bass boom
    Black nigger takes a hit sending up a spark
    In the dark heat
    Swaying a little to the bass beat
    White nigger takes a hit takes money out
    Says this is what it's all about
    Rots your brain - who cares
    Black nigger stares
    White nigger sighs
    I like your music
    I like your style
    I crack a joke so why don't you smile

    White nigger dancing out on the floor tonight
    The band's not good but the beat seems right
    The band's all black and the floor's all white
    Clenching fists unite and fight
    Rock Agianst Racism rules tonight
    But in the real world
    No-one rules
    But fists are clenched all right
    Down in the Underground
    Out in the playground
    The common ground
    is a Battleground

    Now you don't have to be black to be a nigger no more
    The writing's on the wall
    Say - black is power
    White is flower
    Diveded we fall
    And behind the wall
    behind the door,
    In the dark heat
    In the rhythm of the bass beat
    Something is wrong
    And no-one is taking the blame
