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

EmIn our modern free spoken society
DThere is a word that we still hold taboo
C DA word with a terrible history of being used to abuse oppress and subdue
Em DJust six seemingly harmless letters arranged in a way that will form a word
C BWith more power than the pieces of metal that are forged to make swords
C D EmA couple of G's an R and an E an I and an N
C D BJust 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 DReclaim the word as their own it doesn't mean the rest of you have a right to it's use
Em DSo never under estimate the power that language imparts
C BSticks and stones may break your bones but words can break hearts
C DA 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 CAn I and an aNd in the end it will only offend don't want to have to spell
Bit out again
