"Straight American Slave" as written by and Mario Rubalcaba Paul O'beirne....
Say hello to my little friend
A broken spleen and a heart of gold
Has a face that the world adores, yeah
But lives a life that belongs in hell, no

But we ain't movin' now
But we ain't movin' now
But we ain't movin' now

Buffalo soldier
Break dance with knives stuck in your back
Holy water
Pours out of stretch marks from your past

A straight American slave
A straight American slave

Say hello to my little friend
A broken spleen and a heart of gold
Has a face that the world adores, yeah
But lives a life that belongs in hell, no

But we ain't movin' now
But we ain't movin' now
But we ain't movin' now

Buffalo soldier
Break dance with knives stuck in your back
Holy water
Pours out of stretch marks from our past

Buffalo soldier
Break dance with knives stuck in your back

A straight American slave
A straight American slave

    General CommentIt's about how gays are represented in the media, like how blacks once were some time ago; only for comic relief. And how it's ok for a straight person to be play a gay person on TV, but still innaroprate to most people for a gay person to exist in real life.
