Ever feel like you've been unnecessarily singled out because of your appearance?
I was walking up the street, late one Sunday night,
The cops were driving down the street, and I was to their right.
One said to the other, "There's a freak at 3 o'clock!
Long hair and a leather jacket...we'll have a little talk!"
So they pulled up right beside me and they motioned me to stop,
I thought I'd best obey him, after all, he was a cop.
He asked a bunch of questions, and I grudgingly obliged,
I wondered what he'd do to me, if I had've lied.
"We're only checking up!" he said,
"There's nothing you've done wrong!"
But I know why they stopped me: it's because my hair was long.
He had only done his job, and he'd been nice about it,
But would he have stopped me if I'd had short hair?
I really doubt it.
