I got power
You got power
We all got power.

Yeah, white people have got money.
But lots of black people got money too.
Lots of black people don’t got money.
But lots of white people don’t got money

You say y’all getting shot because of white supremacy,
But there’s always been issues with cops and some felonies.
This goes for white people too,
Put your hands up and shut up.
But if you run,
You might get the gun.
There is no running and THEN cooperating.

You can complain about being arrested,
But you do the crime.
You can best believe if a white man gets caught doing the crime with you
He’s goin down too.
If you do the crime
You do the time.

I got power
You got power
We all got power.

There are no scholarships for being white.
There’s white colleges yes.
But there’s also black colleges.

If you work hard you get good grades,
Simple as that.
You don’t get an E, just because you’re black

I got power
You got power
We all got power.
