Sunday Music ~ The Black Messiah


A HAT TIP to Sing a Simple Song, for today’s inspiration!

THE KINKS (1978)

Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine
Everybody talking about racial equality
‘Cos everybody’s equal in the good Lord’s eyes
But if I told you that God was black
What would you think of that
I bet you wouldn’t believe it

There’s a self made prophet living right next to me
He said the Black Messiah’s gonna come and set the whole world free
He looked at me with his evil eye and prophesied
And he really believed it

He said a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
And he no liar, ‘cos he has truly heard the word
Everybody talk about racial equality
But I’m the only honky living on an all black street
They knock me down ‘cos they brown and I white
Like you wouldn’t believe it

They say a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world
Everybody talk about racial equality
Everybody talk about equal rights
But white’s white, black’s black and that’s that
Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine

Everybody talking about racial equality
You hear everybody talking about equal rights
But white’s white, black’s black and that’s that
And that’s the way you should leave it

Don’t want no Black Messiah to come and set the world on fire
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world
Everybody got to show a little give and take
Everybody got to live with a little less hate
Everybody gotta work it out, we gotta sort it out
Everybody got the right to speak their mind
So don’t shoot me for saying mine

  3. When I took care of my mother, prior to her passing away, she had me take her to the shrine of the Black Madonna, just outside Eureka, MO. It is quite an amazing place. If you ever head toward St Louis, it’s well worth the stop. Excellent info about the place here: http://www.franciscancaring.org/blackmadonnashri.html

  4. Had trouble posting for some unknown reason. Here’s a link to the Black Madonna site in Eureka, MO: http://www.franciscancaring.org/blackmadonnashri.html
