​Mighty Mighty Spade and Whitey

This song is by Alexis Korner and appears on the compilation album Musically Rich... and Famous (1998) and on the compilation album Kornerstoned (2006).

Everybody's talking
About this country's state
We give a new power every hour
Just about with every Christian fate
Killing up our leaders
It don't matter none black or white
We all know it's wrong
But we're gonna fight to make it right

Mighty, mighty spade or whitey
Your black and white power
Is gonna be a crumbling tower
And we who stand divided
And so god undecided
Give this some thought
In stupidness we've all been caught

It really make no difference
If you're cut you're gonna bleed
Might I take a little deeper
Human life come from the semen seed
Now I'm gonna say it loud
I'm just as proud as the brothers too
And just like the rest
I don't want no mess about
Who's taking who

Mighty, mighty spade or whitey
Your black and white power
Is gonna be a crumbling tower
And we who stand divided
And so god undecided
Give this some thought
In stupidness we've all been caught

Mighty, mighty spade or whitey
Your black and white power
Is gonna be a crumbling tower
And we who stand divided
And so god undecided
Give this some thought
In stupidness we've all been caught
Give this some thought
In stupidness we've all been caught
Spade or whitey
