"No One's Leaving" as written by and Lou Reed....
I'm a white bread, I'm a white bread, so?
I'm a got a ring and I hang it through my nose
Got a little game, take it to the park,
Don't care who plays, long as the game is on.

My sister and her boyfriend slept in the park,
Had to leave home because he was dark
Now they parade around in New York with a baby boy,
He's gorgeous!
Ain't nobody leaving!

Blacks call each other "brother" and "sis,"
Count me in, because I've been missed
I've seen color changed by a kiss,
Just as my brother and my sister.

My sister and her boyfriend slept in the park,
Had to leave home because he was dark
Now they parade around in New York with a baby boy,
He's gorgeous!
Ain't nobody leaving!

I wish I knew everyone's nickname,
All their slang and all their sayings
Everyone would show affection,
Know how to dress to fit the occasion

And I wish we all waved
All waved
All waved
I wish we all
Wish we all
Wish we all
Waved

    General CommentI truly feel sorry for my computer desk, sofa arm, car dashboard or anything else that's in my way when I play this song! Even a "Quadroplegic" person starts to 'airdrum' when this song starts! As far as the song meaning goes, I wish that more bands would take the initiative to write more songs dealing with discrimination like Jane's Addiction or the Red Hot Chili Peppers for that matter. If I'm gonna hate someone, it's gonna be because of "you" not your skin tone.
