Those People – feat. Leland Sklar & Pedro Segundo

Post Kenosha and the continued hate fueling, and racial fear mongering by a morally delinquent leader, here’s a live performance of ‘Those People’. From high brow to low brow, it’s about the previously hidden underbelly (now unashamedly on show), that is present day America…. “

“Those People” studio recording is featured on “The Here & Now” EP

THOSE PEOPLE…
Words and Music Judith Owen

WHAT DO YOU THINK
DOWNTOWN IS BURNING TONIGHT
MAKES YOU THINK
WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG
WE’RE ON THE BRINK
HOW MANY SONS MUST GONE DOWN
PINNED TO THE GROUND
WHAT DID YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN?..

AND IN EVERY BOUGIE COUNTRY CLUB
AND EVERY CRACKERBARREL
TALK IN HUSHED TONES
SO THE BUS BOYS
WON’T HEAR CONNIE TELLING CAROL…

THOSE PEOPLE SCARE ME
THOSE PEOPLE DARE ME TO FEEL GUILTY
THAT’S ANCIENT HISTORY
IT’S TIME TO GET OVER
THE CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDER
BE MORE LIKE OPRAH PLEASE….
(we all love Oprah)

SO WILL IT CHANGE
FOR THE POWERS WHO ARE TO BLAME
WHEN EVERY FLOYD WHO SHAMES THEM
THE LOST MEN WHO UNVEIL THEM
ARE UNDERMINED BY THE LOOTING KIND
DISTRACTING US FROM LARGER CRIMES

IN EVERY BOUGIE COUNTRY CLUB AND EVERY CRACKER-BARREL
TALK IN HUSHED TONES SO THE BUS BOYS WON’T HEAR CONNIE TELLING CAROL…

THOSE PEOPLE SCARE ME
THOSE PEOPLE DARE ME TO FEEL GUILTY
THAT’S ANCIENT HISTORY
IT’S TIME TO GET OVER
THE CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDER
BE MORE LIKE OPRAH
(WE ALL LOVE OPRAH)
