White Man Lyrics - Queen

Review The Song (2)

Words and music by Brian May

I'm a simple man with a simple name
From this soil my people came
In this soil remain oh yeah oh yeah
He made us our shoes
And we trod soft on the land
But the immigrant built roads
On our blood and sand oh yeah

White man White man
Don't you see the light behind your blackened skies
White man White man
You took away the sight to blind my simple eyes
White man White man
Where you gonna hide from the hell you've made

Oh the red man knows wars
With his hands and his knives
On the Bible you swore
Fought your battle with lies oh yeah
Leave my body in shame
Leave my soul in disgrace
But by ev'ry god's name
Say a prayer for your race oh yeah

White man White man
Our country was green and all our rivers wide
White man White man
You came with a gun and soon our children died
White man White man
Don't you give a light for the blood you've shed?

White man White man
White man
White man White man
For you battled with lies
White man White man
Still lies
White man White man
Say you look around every skin and bone again

What is left of your dream?
Just the words on your stone
A man who learned how to teach
Then forgot how to learn
Oh yeah

A shame | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/3/11

It is a shame that even today the native americans are treated as second class citizens. Finding oil or rare earth in a reservation - maybe they should be moved? Need a disposal zone for radioactive waste or arsene, well there is a reservation with some redskins in our backyard.
Thanks Freddie for reminding us...

maening of white man | Reviewer: Sergio Cornejo | 2/27/10

it is obvious that this song makes a short reference of the advance of the "white men" through indian lands, because it sais:"from this soil my people came". and it looks like a reclaim of the lands¬°by telling that white man have earn the hell with the "red man", and it also shows, the way men advanced killing the indians as the time tey stopped being men and turned into annimals..."say you look around every skin and bone again"....."a man who learned how to teach, then forgot how to learn".
