Lyrics for Black Like Me by Mickey Guyton:

Verse 1
Little kid in a small town
I did my best just to fit in
Broke my heart on the playground, mm
When they said I was different

Pre-Chorus
Oh, now
Now, I'm all grown up and nothin' has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

Chorus
It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

Verse 2
My daddy worked day and night
For an old house and a used car
Just to live that good life, mm
It shouldn't be twice as hard

Pre-Chorus
Oh, now
Now, I'm all grown up and nothin' has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

Chorus
It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be, oh, black like me

Bridge
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, I know
I'm not
The only one
Oh, yeah
Who feels
Like I
I don't belong

Chorus
It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
And if you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be, oh, black like me

Outro
Oh, and some day we'll all be free
And I'm proud to be, oh, black like me
And I'm proud to be black like me
I'm proud to be black like me
Black like me
