Racist Friend

Jerry Dammers / Dick Cuthell / John Bradbury

(the Special AKA)

 

If you have a racist friend

Now is the time, now is the time for your friendship to end

 

Be it your sister

Be it your brother

Be it your cousin or your, uncle or your lover

 

If you have a racist friend

now is the time, now is the time for your friendship to end

 

Be it your best friend

Or any other

Is it your husband or your father or your mother?

 

Tell them to change their views

Or change their friends

Now is the time, now is the time, for your friendship to end

 

So if you know a racist who thinks he is your friend

Now is the time, now is the time for your friendship to end

 

Call yourself my friend?

Now is the time to make up your mind, don’t try to pretend

 

Be it your sister

Be it your brother

Be it your cousin or your uncle or your lover

 

So if you are a racist

Our friendship has got to end

And if your friends are racists don’t pretend to be my friend

 

So if you have a racist friend

Now is the time, now is the time for our friendship to end

 

GOODBYE
