  Society's Child

  (Janis Ian)

  Copyright (c) 1966 Taosongs Two (BMI) Admin. by Bug

  Come to my door, baby
  Face is clean and shining black as night
  My mama went to answer
  You know that you looked so fine
  Now I could understand the tears & the shame
  She called you boy instead of your name
  When she wouldn't let you inside
  When she turned and said
  "But honey, he's not our kind"

          She says I can't see you any more, baby
          Can't see you any more

  Walk me down to school, baby
  Everybody's acting deaf and blind
  Until they turn and say
  "Why don't you stick to your own kind"
  My teachers all laugh, their smirking stares
  Cutting deep down in our affairs
  Preachers of equality
  Think they believe it
  Then why won't they just let us be?

          They say I can't see you any more, baby
          Can't see you any more

  One of these days I'm gonna stop my listening
  Gonna raise my head up high
  One of these days I'm gonna raise up
  My glistening wings and fly
  But that day will have to wait for a while
  Baby, I'm only society's child
  When we're older, things may change
  But for now this is the way they must remain

          I say I can't see you any more, baby
          Can't see you any more
          No, I don't want to see you any more

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
