I woke up white today
And everything went right today
I woke up white today and everything was a-OK

I woke up Caucasian
Had a realization
I should take advantage
Of this fucked up situation

I walk up in a store
I don't get hard looks no more
I'll go rob a bank real fast
And surely they'll blame your

Black Ass
Black Ass
Black Ass
Black Ass

I woke up white today and everything went right today
Everyone said hi to me cause I exude excellency
I'm starched and yuppified no way I make you terrified
I'ma go electric slide my way up to the upper

East Side
East Side
East Side
East Side

I'm the embodiment of a fine upstanding citizen
And the cops just drive on by even though I'm super high
I know black folks real well cause I watch me some Dave Chapelle
In a fancy restaurant they don't assume I want

Chicken
Chicken
Chicken
Chicken

Hey hey I woke up white today
Woke up white today

I woke up white today and everything went right today
I woke up white today and everything was a-OK
I woke up Caucasian had a realization
I should take advantage of this fucked up situation

Woke up white today
True story
