  • Black chick white guy, does it mean shit, maybe?
    I don't know but yo, it never fazed me
    But either way here's one tale
    Of two like that and what prevailed
    It started way back in the eighth grade
    In the small old town where the two both stayed
    He came from a family of middle class
    Where everything he did he always had to ask
    She came from a place that was so alone
    You know the same old tale of a broken home
    Her momma was an alkie and more like a friend
    Had three different kids from three different men
    And that's just the way shit was
    Couldn't change it, couldn't rearrange it, so there it was
    Anyway the two kept on
    With the phone calls notes and so on and so on
    And after the bullshit and whattn'
    That day came the two started fuckin'
    All the time, you know kids' habits
    Every single day fuckin' like rabbits
    Sneakin' out the car when he was fifteen
    Climbin' in the window and fuckin' all night, see
    Fuckin' during lunch in the junior high bathrooms
    Drinking champagne and trippin' on mushrooms
    His dick was metal her pussy was a magnet
    Ninth grade came, I'm pregnant
    Shit got frantic and man, oh, Lord
    It was a tuff decision, but they decided to abort it
    It might have been right it might have been wrong
    But one thing's for sure it really fucked his head up
    Where is it, who is it, how is it, was it right?
    These are the things he thought in bed at night
    A lot of people might laugh at this
    But fuck, 'em they don't know the half of it

    Ain't no sunshine when you're low, I'm low
    People tell me life's a game I'm not playin'
    Bitches don't mean shit to me anymore
    I have taken my blows, I'm still standin'

    Now as time went on the the two kept on
    They kept seeing each other off and on
    See she moved to the city and you know what happened
    Black chick with a real white accent
    Pretty girl in the ghetto, go figure
    Yeah, she got macked by some dope-dealin' nigga
    Still seein' that other kid on the side
    She kept most of her thoughts inside
    See all the first guy did was just love her
    While that punk mother fucker used to beat her and punch her
    She was livin' all wild
    I think all she ever wanted was the love of her own child
    She asked the first guy to have his baby
    He looked at her like she must be crazy
    He was makin' records and goin' on tour
    Twenty thousand people hip hoppin on the floor
    And all that while she sat at home and got macked
    If she stepped out of line, she got slapped
    And then one day she prayed to the Lord to take that guy away
    And he did he got caught with a loaded gun
    And went to jail but first she had his son
    Oooh, and now what to do?
    She had no man, no money and no clue
    Now the other guy came back from tourin'
    And she called him up early one mornin'
    They hooked up her mind was blown
    As he began to raise her son as his own
    And that's a lot of shit to deal with, man
    And if you ain't been there you wouldn't understand
    And people still laugh at this shit
    Fuck 'em, they don't know the half of it

    Ain't no sunshine when you're low, I'm low
    People tell me life's a game I'm not playin'
    Bitches don't mean shit to me anymore
    I have taken my blows, I'm still standin'

    Now for the next year there was some good times
    A few bad times mostly good times
    See, he was a ramblin' man to the bone
    He liked women and wine and he loved to roam
    Not like she was any kind of saint
    See in this story there's a lot of red paint
    But time kept slippin' and made her crazy
    And she talked about havin' another baby
    The guy was like, "oh Lord"
    We got one now that we can't afford
    But she convinced she could handle even two
    Said "I want your child or I'm leavin you"
    I can't figure out why then he didn't run
    I guess he was attached to her and her son
    All confused about what to do
    That girl met another guy and was fuckin' him too, slut
    Could barely pay her rent
    And then the same old shit, I'm pregrant
    And if that ain't some shit 'cause
    The girl didn't even know who the father was
    And still by her side the first guy stayed
    Head gettin' more fucked by the day
    He stuck it out for nine months I don't know why
    And then a little girl on the Fourth of July
    Was born in the front seat of his car
    It was amazing, kinda like a shooting star
    He was happy, told his family and friends
    Only to realize later his little girl wasn't his
    And that crushed him quick
    Suicidal thoughts were in his head real thick
    But before he found all that out
    From the same chick, another kid popped out
    And that shit's real ill
    Girl told him that she was takin' the fuckin' pill
    She must have known all along
    The little girl wasn't his and she was tryin' to latch on
    Three different kids from three different men
    History repeats itself again
    And after some more shit got stirred
    He kicked that bitch to the curb
    And now from her he's got a little boy that makes him laugh a bit, huh
    Huh, and he loves him
    But still you don't know the fuckin' half of it

    Ain't no sunshine when you're low, I'm low
    People tell me life's a game I'm not playin'
    Bitches don't mean shit to me anymore
    I have taken my blows, I'm still standin'
    I'm still standin'
    I'm still standin'
    I am still standin' Writer/s: R.J. RITCHIE

  • AnonymousAwesome song n rap n history
  • AnonymousCongratulations on your marriage.
  • Dave from Greer, ScNever understood what the big deal is about interracial relationships.
  • Richard from Long Island, NyColor does exist. I saw Kid Rock in concert last week, and am seeing him again in 3 weeks. Kid Rock is the man.
  • Jacob from Woodward, OkKid Rock is not racist, I constantly use the N word, and am not afraid to say that tonight I had a really good time with a fine black woman, Kid Rocks style has changed through his career, but he has always been kid rock, just as a young mechanic such as myself doesn't have the experience of a seasoned mechanic, his style was raw, but that doesn't make it bad, and my 18 yo gf has 2 kids by 2 different men, the first one from me, although not interracial, i kinda know what kid is talkin about.
  • Jasen from Milford, MiRace does not exist? How can you honestly sit there and say that?
  • Kurdt from Chicago, IlDecent track.

    It's unfortunate when a myth dictates are behavior, attitudes and expression. Race does not exist, but o well.
  • Ally from Philly, PaI can see why Chris from New Zealand called Kid Rock a racist...'cause in the song he used the 'N word'...which to me is the ugliest word in the he a racist, I don't know. Probably not but, in his defense he was very young and you can tell that his style got extremely better as time progress.
    You can tell that this was a style like Too Short, D NIce, and Ice Cube...which should not be duplicated cause they are unique. Kid Rock Later developed his own style...if he wrote this song over again today I think it would sound different.
  • Kenneth from Cleveland, OhI never really thought Kid Rock was racist ,but the fact he dated a Black girl is not proof that he isn't, seriously.
  • Kiki from Big Spring, Txthis song is the best song ever
  • Renae from Mill Grove, PaKid Rock rhymes like B-rad from Malibu's most wanted.
  • Adz from Newcastle, AustraliaHello Kid Rock fans from all round the world, this is my 1st posting on2 this site & 1st & foremost i would like 2 take this opportunity 2 say "congratulations" 2 chris from New Zealand 4 his brilliant summation of Kid Rocks relationship with Kelley Russell. However chris, your incredibly perceptive mind has seemed 2 ignore 1 simple fact... Kid Rock is NOT a racist! I could over simplify my explanation, as u chose 2 do with your posting, by asking u why he would date an African-American girl in the 1st place if he was racist, but instead i might actually include some FACTS: Fact Number 1; i'm not sure how much u know about Kid Rock, (from your posting i get the impression "not much" would b a suitable answer 2 that query) but on his album "Cocky" there was a bonus track called "W.C.S.R" which features Snoop Dogg. News flash chris, SNOOP IS BLACK!!! Now helping 2 sell your product via the use of a guest star is 1 thing, but if Kid was racist would he really want 2 collaborate with some1 who so proudly sings about being black?! i think not. i recommend that after a much needed trip 2 an optometrists 2 c if u can b cured of your 'color' blindness u may wish 2 have a peek at the inside of any Kid Rock cd booklet & 4 the 1st time u'll b alerted 2 Fact 2: that the drummer in Kids Twisted Brown Trucker band is... drum roll please (no pun intended!).... AN AFRICAN AMERICAN!!! Stefanie Eulinberg has been Kid Rock's drummer from 1998 onwards & if Kid was racist he would not b able 2 tolerate being in the same band & touring with her & vice versa. if he was racist she could quit & work elsewhere, as slavery was abolished after the civil war... THE END, well, the end 4 chris anyway! now as 4 billy from Boston Area, r u perhaps related 2 Pamela Anderson by sticking up 4 her in your posting?! that's the only way i could understand u sticking up 4 her. if u were 2 look up the term "white trash" or the word "groupie" in the dictionary u would c a picture of ur beloved pam. B4 she was with Kid & Tommy Lee she also threw her legs open 4 Vince Neil from Motley Crue, Bret Micheals from Poison, & Kelly Slater, just 2 name a few. Kid was 2 good 4 her billy! she was probably with him only 2 further her "career", the same reason shes sort out other rock stars, as there r 3 facts in life; the sky is blue, the grass is green, & pamela anderson would appear at the opening of an envelope. Kid is a cool guy who deserves better than some skanky hoe like Pamela Anderson, who, after she dies, will have 2 b buried in a y-shaped coffin.
  • Dunno from Central Ca, FlEx-girlfriend Kelley Russell is the subject of his biographical song, "Black Chick, White Guy" quoted in Rock's excact words.
  • Taisha from Port Washington, Ny"I still use a rebel flag. And it's kind of funny for someone to ask about, because I've never got any static for it. I can't believe nobody ever game me (grief)," he says.

    "The reason I do stuff like that is obviously because I'm not a racist," he says.

    By "obviously," he's implying that his music couldn't exist without black influences. His bands have been racially mixed. And he has a son with a former girlfriend who is black.
  • Kurt from Downers Grove, IlHow could he be racist if he used to date a black chick? That doesn't make any sense. Plus, she didn't dump him, so get your facts straight. I love this song, I wish more songs were this personal.
  • Chris from Wellington, New ZealandKid rock used to date a black chick he was racist she dumped him... THE END
  • King from Evansville, Inthe song is about kid rock's ex-girlfriend who had a baby that was fully black NOT mixed. the rollingstone looked into this and wouldnot print false stories. kid went through denile about his girlfriend cheating on him until he finally lissoned to his sences. VH1 behind the music has the full info
