Tanya Stephens, Do You Still Care

Tanya Stephens, Do You Still Care
(Rebelution, VP 2006)

Dove cresceva Bubba,
masticava il suo tabacco
E quando appendevano delle corde,
loro ne tiravano su sempre due
C’erano croci che bruciavano per tutta la notte,
e le chiese saltavano in aria
E se non eri come loro,
eri fottuto
Il tempo passò e Bubba aveva compiuto quaranta anni
E tutti quei Jack Daniels cominciarono a riscuotere il loro tributo
Sembrava proprio che Bubba
stesse per ritirarsi dalle scene
Nessuno dei suoi amici del Clan
poteva aiutarlo adesso
La famiglia si raccolse al capezzale del suo letto
pronta a cantare il blues
Quando il dottore entrò dicendo:
“Ci sono delle novità!
La buona notizia, Bubba,
è che ti ho trovato un fegato nuovo…
L’unica cattiva notizia, è che appartiene a un negro”

Che te ne importa della trama dei suoi capelli
o del colore marrone della sua pelle?
Che te ne importa? Non te ne importa un fico secco
adesso che ti ritrovi in questo frangente?
Che te ne importa…
significa davvero tanto ora che sei tu
quello che ha bisogno d’aiuto?
Che te ne importa?
Lo trovi ancora così difficile amare il
tuo prossimo come ami te stesso, adesso?
Dimmi perché non puoi accettarmi per come
sono… proprio per quello che sono
Dimmi perché non puoi accettarmi per come
sono… proprio per quello che sono

Dove cresceva Bigga, i ragazzi dovevano
essere duri
Le ragazze erano trofei che ogni uomo
doveva collezionare
Quando si faceva male e le lacrime
gli bruciavano gli occhi
Sua madre diceva: “Smettila di fare chiasso, sei
una donna? I veri uomini non piangono”
Bigga imparò che per essere un uomo doveva
saper lottare
E seguiva delle regole ferree su
cosa è giusto e cosa è sbagliato
Non ebbe mai il lusso
di poter scegliere
Perciò secondo lui, non c’erano scuse
per chi era diverso
Bigga stava spingendo all’angolo,
per alzare qualche spiccio
Quando si imbatté in un omaccione
con cui si era già scontrato in passato
Bigga guardò la pistola sollevarsi
e il proiettile volare
Incredulo nel vedere tutti i suoi amici
che se la davano a gambe
Lasciandolo sul marciapiede, senza preoccuparsi se fosse vivo o morto
Fu salvato da un assistente sanitario che aveva un ciondolo
con su scritto “Gay Pride”
Il colpo alla testa,
sarebbe stato fatale
Loro ti hanno salvato la vita anche se tu dicevi
sempre che i froci devono morire

Che te ne importa della trama dei suoi capelli
o del colore marrone della sua pelle?
Che te ne importa? Non te ne importa un fico secco
adesso che ti ritrovi in questo frangente?
Che te ne importa…
significa davvero tanto ora che sei tu
quello che ha bisogno d’aiuto?
Che te ne importa?
Lo trovi ancora così difficile amare il
tuo prossimo come ami te stesso, adesso?
Dimmi perché non puoi accettarmi per come
sono… proprio per quello che sono
Dimmi perché non puoi accettarmi per come
sono… proprio per quello che sono

Questo è il motivo per cui la guerra non può cessare:
se non la pensi come me,
faccio esplodere il mio pezzo
Questo è il motivo per cui non possiamo fare progressi:
se non fai a modo mio, allora stai sbagliando
Questo è il motivo per cui i bambini iracheni piangono,
e altri palestinesi e israeliani muoiono
Questo è il motivo per cui il mondo sta soffrendo
diciamo che vogliamo che regni la pace
e poi ci sono ancora proiettili
Adesso dimmi perché non puoi accettarmi per come
sono… proprio per quello che sono

"continua" per leggere il testo in lingua originale


Where Bubba Grew Up, Kept his tobacco chewed up,
And when they used to hang ropes, they always kep two up,
Had crosses burnin all night like the church blew up,
And if you didnt look like them, they would fuck you up.

Time passed, and Bubba turned 40 years old,
And all them Jack Daniels started taking a toll,
Seem like Bubba was about to make a final bow,
None of his friends from the clan couldnt help him now.

Family gathered at his bedside, ready to sing the blues,
When the doctor rushed in and said "Ive got some news!!!"
"The good news is, Bubba, Ive found you a liver, only bad news is, it belongs to a Nigger"

Do you still care, about the texture of his hair or the cocoa brown colour of his skin,
Do you still care, do you still give a damn now you're in the predicament you're in,
Do you still care, does it still mean a lot now,
You're the one who's needin the help,
Do you still care, do you still find it hard to love your neighbour as you love yourself now,
Tell me why cant you accept me as I am,
Just as I am now.

Where Bigga grew up, boys were supposed to be tough,
Girls were trophies every man always kept a few of,
When he was hurt and the tears would sting in his eyes,
His mother said "Stop di noise, yuh a girl? real boys dont cry!"
He learned in order to be a man he had to know how to fight,
And had some very difinitive rules bout whats wrong or right,
[Do You Still Care Lyrics on http://www.lyricsmania.com]
He never had the luxury of being able to choose,
So to him for being different, there was no excuse.

Bigga was hustling on the corner, makin some cash,
When he bumped into some beef that he had from the past,
He watched the guns raise and the bullets fly in disbelief,
As his friends all jumped in their rides,
Left him in the gutter didnt care if he died,
He was rescued by a car with plates that said 'Gay Pride',
It would have been fatal,
A shot in your head,
They saved your life, though you always said "Chi-chi fi dead!!"

Now do you care, bout the clothes that they wear,
Would you rather if they left you there,
Do you still care what your friends wanna think if they see you hangin out with a queer,
Do you still care, does it still mean a lot now, you're the one who's needin the help,
Do you still care, do you still find it hard to love your neighbour as you love yourself now,
Tell me why cant you accept me as I am,
Just as I am now.

And thats the reason why, war cant cease,
If yuh nuh look like me, me ago pop mi piece,
And thats the reason why we cant get along,
If yuh nuh do it my way then you doin it wrong,
And thats the reason why, Iraqui babies gonna cry,
And more Palestinians and Isrealies gonna die,
Thats the reason why the world is in pain,
We say we want peace fi reign, but a bullets again,
Now tell me why cant you accept me as I am,
Just the way I am now,
Tell me why cant you accept me as I am,
Just the way I am woah…………….
