Because it’s the rules
Teacher said to boy
Not my rules he says, no

Talking in Ebonics
Talking in italics
Talking talking talking talking
Just remember

That you wear a crown
Oh-oh oh-oh

Because it’s the rules
Policeman said to boy
Not my rules he said, no

Who will love the prophet?
Who will love the madman?
Who will love the genius child?
Just remember...

Angela Davis
Charlie Parker
Cassius Clay

Not my rules they said
No, no, no
Not my rules they said
No
