Prejudice
This is a song about prejudice
And the language of prejudice
And the power of the language of... prejudice
It's called
Prejudice

Em
In our modern free spoken society
            D
There is a word that we still hold taboo
   C                                     D
A word with a terrible history of being used to abuse oppress and subdue
Em                                     D
Just six seemingly harmless letters arranged in a way that will form a word
            C                                       B
With more power than the pieces of metal that are forged to make swords
            C               D            Em
A couple of G's an R and an E an I and an N

                  C                    D                   B
Just six little letters all jumbled together have caused damage that we may never mend
Em                                          D  
And it's important that we all respect that if these people should happen to choose to 
C                                         D
Reclaim the word as their own it doesn't mean the rest of you have a right to it's use
Em                           D
So never under estimate the power that language imparts
C                                           B
Sticks and stones may break your bones but words can break hearts
                 C                                                    D
A couple of G's; geez unless you have had to live it, an R and an E; even I am careful with it
            Em                      D                 C
An I and an aNd in the end it will only offend don't want to have to spell 
        B
it out again

Em D C B D Em x2

Yeah

Em            D                         C     B  D
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger
Em            D                         C     B  D             
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger
     C
So listen to me if you care for your health
     D                              B
You wont call me ginger less your ginger yourself
Em            D                         C     B  
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger

Em                              G
When you are a ginger life is pretty hard
C7                                 F
Years of ritual bullying in the school yard
Em                          G
Kids calling you ranga and fanta pants
C7                     F
No invitation to the high school dance
         Em                            G
But you get up and learn to hold your head up
     C7                                 F
You try to keep your cool and not get het up
     Em                                G
But until the feeling of ill is truly let up
         C7                      B7
Then the word is ours and ours alone don't you know



Em            D                         C  B  D
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger
Em            D                         C  B  D
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger
C
So if you call us ginge we just might come unhinged
D                                                       Bb7
If you don't have a fringe with at least a tinge of the ginge in it
Em            D                         C  B
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger

Em                                   G
Now listen to me we're not looking for sympathy
C7                              Fsus4 F
Just because we are sensitive to UV
Em                                G
Just ‘cause we're pathetically pale
C7                           F
We do alright with the females
Em                                       G
Yeah I like to ask the ladies round for ginger beer
C7                                                 F
And soon they're running their fingers through my ginger beard
Em                                     G
And dunking my ginger nuts into their ginger tea
C7                               G
And asking if they can call me ginge, And I say I don't think that's appropriate

Em                    D                   C      B     D     
Cus only a ginger can call another ginger ginger
Em                     D               C         B     D
Only a ginga can call another ginga ginga

C                                    D                                           
And all the ladies agree it's a fact once you've gone ginge you can't go back
Em                      D                 C        B            
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger

Yeah go ginge go you funky ginge

*SOLO*

 Em                           G    
Yeah you can call us bozo or fire truck
             C7                    Bb    F
You can even call us carrot top or blood nut
Em                                   G
Yeah you can call us match stick or tampon
     C7                         D
But f**king with the G word is just not on
Em                               G
If you're a ginger bowl and you don't like us
C7                                            F
You gonna stand up to the fight if you want to fight us
Em                                     
But if you cut yourself you might catch gingervitus
    G                           D      F F# Gm
So maybe you should shut your funky mouth
