Letra de They Don't Care About Us (Lyrics)

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody's gone mad

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Sue me, Sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kick me
Don't you black or white me

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rapin' me of my pride oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black man, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don't want to see
But if Roosevelt was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

Some things in life they just don't want to see
But if Martin Luther was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, kick me
Don't you wrong or right me

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don't really care about us

Sobre They Don't Care About Us

  • El Rey del Pop también fue objetivo de la censura en sus canciones. El tema habla de como los poderosos y los gobiernos dan la espalda y maltratan a los pueblos, sobretodo a las minorías.

  • El tema original decía en la letra “jew me”, “kike me”. En 1995 Michael Jackson, ante la presión social, se vio obligado a pedir disculpas por el uso de esos términos y se modificó la letra de la canción por “do me” y “strike me”, esos fragmentos de la canción están camuflados con efectos de sonido en la canción que llego a los medios mainstream.

  • El disco original que incluye el tema sin la modificación de la letra es un objeto fetiche de colección entre los fans del cantante.

  • Una de las versiones del videoclip, la que se filmó el Brasil, también estuvo cargadita de polémica. Brasil esperaba convertirse en ciudad olímpica y el videoclip tenía intención de mostrar la cara menos turística y más humilde del país. Algo que no gustó a las autoridades. Trataron incluso de boicotear la filmación y prohibir que se llevase a cabo.
