Rosa Parks Elegy In A Rolling Stones Song
Hey, you, get off of my cloud,
you can’t buy your cigarettes
in the same place as me!
Hey, you, get off of my seat!
In walked a rebel dressed
in the Confederate flag,
I’m sick and tired
of this talk of equality,
it ain’t gonna happen to me
said the white man
to nobody in particular except you and me!
Hey, you, get off of my cloud!
But, Rosa, rode that cloud all the way to jail,
proving that you can never fail even though
the white man wails---Hey, you, get off of my cloud!
