Those Are Your Hang-Ups

 

Verse 1

Breaking your assumptions

By just living

Black disabled man out in public chilling

So why are you illin

 

Chorus

I’m an uncle minding my own business

Looking out for my mix race nephews

Why do we scare you

Mind your own business

 

Verse 2

You are so confuse

Just don’t know what to do

Keep an eye on me while calling the police

Thinking u need to get child protective service

 

Chorus

I’m an uncle minding my own business

Looking out for my mix race nephews

Why do we scare you

Mind your own business

 

Bridge

Go from pity to scared

Open my mouth

Now you are in fear

Frozen & you refuse to hear

In front of my nephews

Standing right here but u don’t care

 

Verse 3

Trying to enjoy Mother’s Day

Isms never take a day off

Just another day but I had enough

My sister, nephews & I trying to have a good time

 

Outer Verse

Minding our own business

Please don’t interrupt

Those are your hang-ups

Don’t make them ours
