Song Details
Artist(s)Skunk Anansie
Album(s)Paranoid & Sunburnt

I HIT HIM WITH A PIECE OF HIS PHILOSOPHY
ANGLO-SAXON MUCK IN HIS TYPE OF GREED
WHAT DID HE DO TO DESERVE SUCH HATE
HE TRIED TO INTELLECTUALISE MY BLACKNESS

HE PUT ON HIS LEATHERS AND HIS REGGAE TRAINERS
THREW AWAY BOB MARLEY PUT ON MAXI PRIEST
I TOLD HIM `BOUT THE PROBLEMS OF HIS CONSCIOUS DEEDS
WHEN HE TRIED TO INTELLECTUALISE MY BLACKNESS

HE TRIED TO SUMMERIZE, TO INSTITUTALISE
STILL HE COULD RECOGNIZE, HE WAS MATERIALIZED

HE TRIED TO INTELLECTUALISE MY BLACKNESS
TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR HIS WHITENESS
HE TRIED TO INTELLECTUALISE MY BLACKNESS, SAVE ME

HE`S ALWAYS TRYIN` TO MAKE UP FOR HIS LITTLE SLIPS
THE JOKE ABOUT THE NIGGA AND THE YELLOW NIP
THEN HE TELLS ME I`M SO DIFFERENT FROM THOSE OTHER SHITS
WHEN HE TRIES TO INTELLECTUALISE MY BLACKNESS

MOTHERFUCKER DON`T YOU LECTURE - RISE ME
DON`T YOU EVER TRY TO LECTURIZE ME
