Quoth SongBook

where were the rapists when I was a child ?
they were my neighbors,
that’s why I’m so wild
where were the drunkards that shot with their guns ?
and closed the shops early so we could have fun ?
where were the women who spread the disease
who spread love so freely
and so spread their knees
they went to the southside to make their own laws
away from the knawing of innocent laws
lord they went to the southside and we must go too
if we want our freedom it’s what we must do
if we want happy families it’s what we must do

give me donkey ears !
give me honkey tears !
give me black blood !
and that of queers !
to mix with my own

come with me to the southside where we’ll make our home
come with me to the southside where we’ll make our home

– Will Oldham/Boonie Prince Billy
