I know why I like you
It's 'cause of your clothing and your haircut
And 'cause you're racist
I have a match; your face,
My asking you questions you can't answer
You want to box me?

Our world works in a weird way
I've heard them say a man with a beard may
Frighten children or dogs but a mustache scares me
More

I know why you bite me
It's 'cause of your instincts and your canines
And 'cause I kicked you
