Mickey Guyton – Black Like Me Lyrics

Black Like Me By Mickey Guyton

Little kid in a small town
I did my best just to fit in
Broke my heart on the play ground
When they said I was different

Oh now, Now I’m all growing up and nothing has changed
Yeah still the same

It’s a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

Daddy work day and night
For an old house and used car
Just to live that good life
It shouldn’t be twice as hard

Oh now, Now I’m all growing up and nothing has changed
Yeah still the same

It’s a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

Oh I know I’m not the only one
You feels like I, I don’t belong

It’s a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

Oh in some day will all be free
And I’ll proud to be a black like me
And I’ll proud to be a black like me
proud to be a black like me
black like me
