Societys Child

Janis Ian

 CmF
 COME TO MY DOOR, BABY
 CmF
 FACE IS CLEAN AND SHINING BLACK AS NIGHT
 CmF
 MY MAMA WENT TO ANSWERYOU KNOW THAT YOU
 EbF
 LOOKED SO FINE NOW
 Bb
 I COULD UNDERSTAND THE TEARS & THE SHAME
 D
 SHE CALLED YOU BOY INSTEAD OF YOUR NAME
 Gm
 WHEN SHE WOULDN'T LET YOU INSIDE
 Eb
 WHEN SHE TURNED AND SAID
 FEbF
"BUT HONEY, HE'S NOT OUR KIND"

SHE SAYS
 AmD7
 I CAN'T SEE YOU ANY MORE, BABY
 AmD7BbC
 CAN'T SEE YOU ANY MORE NO, I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU ANY MORE
BABY

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
BABY
