    Been listening to this song a lot lately. Makes me sad, this song was from 30 years ago and yet not a damn thing has changed.

    I see no changes, wake up in the morning, and I ask myself
    Is life worth living, should I blast myself?
    I'm tired of bein' poor, and even worse I'm black
    My stomach hurts, so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch

    Cops give a damn about a negro
    Pull the trigger, kill a nigga, he's a hero
    Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares
    One less hungry mouth on the welfare

    First, ship 'em dope and let 'em deal the brothers
    Give 'em guns, step back, watch 'em kill each other
    It's time to fight back, that's what Huey said
    Two shots in the dark, now Huey's dead

    I got love for my brother, but we can never go nowhere
    Unless we share with each other
    We gotta start makin' changes
    Learn to see me as a brother instead of two distant strangers

    And that's how it's supposed to be
    How can the devil take a brother, if he's close to me?
    I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
    But things changed, and that's the way it is

    I see no changes, all I see is racist faces
    Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
    We under, I wonder what it takes to make this
    One better place, let's erase the wasted

    Take the evil out the people, they'll be acting right
    'Cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
    And only time we chill is when we kill each other
    It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other

    And although it seems heaven sent
    We ain't ready, to see a black President
    It ain't a secret, don't conceal the fact
    The penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks

    But some things will never change
    Try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
    Now tell me, what's a mother to do?
    Bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you

    You gotta operate the easy way
    (I made a G today) But you made it in a sleazy way
    Sellin' crack to the kid (I gotta get paid)
    Well, hey, well, that's the way it is

    We gotta make a change
    It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes
    Let's change the way we eat
    Let's change the way we live
    And let's change the way we treat each other
    You see, the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
    What we gotta do, to survive

    And still I see no changes, can't a brother get a little peace?
    There's war in the streets and war in the Middle East
    Instead of war on poverty, they got a war on drugs
    So the police can bother me

    And I ain't never did a crime, I ain't have to do
    But now, I'm back with the facts givin' 'em back to you
    Don't let 'em jack you up, back you up
    Crack you up and pimps smack you up

    You gotta learn to hold ya own
    They get jealous when they see ya, with ya mobile phone
    But tell the cops, they can't touch this
    I don't trust this, when they try to rush, I bust this

    That's the sound of my tool, you say it ain't cool?
    But mama didn't raise no fool
    And as long as I stay black, I gotta stay strapped
    And I never get to lay back
    'Cause I always got to worry 'bout the pay backs
    Some buck that I roughed up way back
    Comin' back after all these years
    Rat-a-tat, tat, tat, tat, that's the way it is

    Getting ready to drive the Hubby to the airport. It's going to be a lonely two and a half weeks without him here. Especially with everything to get done before I leave.

    Safe travels to my love.

He changed the music industry for all artists by fighting the record companies and winning. Super intelligent and interesting guy that always had a laid back energy. Which is why I think people easily dismiss him.

    You and hubby are the same. He was so dismissive of TP when we first got married (he just told me he hated him back then, lol) but now he says some of the same things you say about him and he really likes him The documentary is really good! We watched it a few months before he passed away.

    Honestly. I know your Hubby is a Prog Rock freak like me so it's difficult to convince us that music other than what those kinds of groups play is actually challenging and complicated. Only when I was forced to sit down and emulate it did I see everything that went in to TP.

    Next, tell him to sit down and REALLY LISTEN to Hall & Oates. I had to learn a few of their tunes and it drove me out of my skull. Some of the most complicated music I've ever had to learn and the same. I dismissed them as just another 70s/80s band that only wanted to hit top 40. He will be blown away.

    And now I'm going to listen to this and clean



    ETA: Mainly have him listen to the electric piano. There are chords in there that I've never heard of much less play. And no two chords seem to be alike. Crazy stuff.

    It's so funny you said that because in the last few years he has decided he really loves some Hall & Oates.

    Tell him that I had to learn "Sara Smile" on my keyboards (electric piano settings) then have him listen to just the electric piano parts.

    Yeah. It's like that

    As a life-long Petty fan, I cannot fathom someone not liking him. Well, after 21+ years of marriage my husband revealed he 'wasn't into him'. WTF??

    I've never not liked him, just didn't pay much attention to him. FWIW I don't think there are people that all out "hate" him. More like, Meh about him.
