Lyrics
I've been ripped off and rejected,
needled and neglected,
shelved and selected
as your Minority Male.

Been beaten and bloodied,
understood and buddied,
scrutinized and studied
as your Minority Male.

I've been strung up and trampled,
photographed and exampled,
labeled and sampled
as your Minority Male.

Now I don't like your jokes and your words
And just sometimes I'd like to be heard.
I don't want you daughter or wife
Just a chance
to lead a life of my own.

I've been overlooked and fired,
oversexed and desired,
welfared and rehired
as your Minority Male.

I've been red-lined and reported,
sympathized and supported,
spit on and imported
as your Minority Male.

I've been despised and tokenized,
nullified and demoralized.
It's been stated or implied
that I'm
your Minority Male.

It's so much more than a numbers game.
You really want someone else to blame.
You don't care who fills that space,
'cause you know you can always replace
your Minority Male.

Your Minority Male.
