Boxes

When I get to be a composer
I’m gonna write me some music about
Horribly nasty stereotypes
Cause we can’t put people in boxes
Based on race, place in society and
What’s on their face
Boxes wouldn’t fit to many people
And if boxes could talk they complain too

Impressions
Can be wrong
If someone smells like French-fries
Doesn’t mean someone likes McDonalds
Know them and you’ll see
He works to pay tuition
Use your sense to detect
What really lies in a person’s heart

Cause not all blondes are dumb
Take Barbra Walters for example
Cause not all Asians are short
Yao Ming plays basketball
Cause not all Americans are fat
Michael Phillips can swim the distance
When we put people in boxes
Can they ever get out?
Be open to new thoughts and ideas
Without them we would have
No
Internet, iPhones or ink
No
Cars, computers or candy
No
AC, Aquaman, or alphabets
And Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, or Bill Gates
Would not
Be household names

Know people
Just don’t look
Talk, converse
People who are
Shy and silent can
Be loud and kooky
If you
Stereotype them
You cant learn the
True them
Cause stereotypes cause unwanted hype
And then we need to wipe that dirty slate
Yep, when I get to be a composer
I’m gonna write me some music about
Horribly nasty stereotypes
