Stiff Little Fingers – Doesn’t make it Alright.

A song about racism covered from the Specials. The lyrics say it all. I love both versions.

DOESN’T MAKE IT ALL RIGHT( B. Goldberg / J. Dammers )
Just because you’re nobody
It doesn’t mean that you’re no good
Just because there’s a reason
It doesn’t mean it’s understood

(Chorus:)

It doesn’t make it all right
It doesn’t make it all right
It’s the worse excuse in the world
And it doesn’t make it all right

Some people think they’re really clever
To smash your head against a wall
Then they say ‘You got it my way’
They really think they know it all

(Chorus)

Just because you’re a black boy
Just because you’re a white
It doesn’t mean you’ve got to hate him
Doesn’t mean you’ve got to fight

(Chorus)

It doesn’t make it all
It doesn’t make it all
It doesn’t make it all right
