lyrics

When they shipped us over as slaves 
Made us struggle in the field till we fell in the grave 
Then they noosed up our necks and hung us from the trees
Burned our bodies down as we bled on the leaves
Mmm…Now they tellin us we still equal even though i
The narrative still the same so
Don't Ask Why…I'm Hotter Than July
Don't Ask Why…I'm Hotter Than July
When they tried to keep us from equality 
We had to march hand in hand just to be free 
They they beat us till we bled and they hosed us down 
Put the dogs on us rippin our knees on the ground 
Don't ask why…I'm Hotter than July
Don't ask why…I'm Hotter than….
Don't try to tell me All Lives Matter
Cause it really doesn't matter to me
When the people who fought and died
For your freedom is Still trying to be free….
Hotter….I'm hotter
Hotter…I'm hotter
When a young baby cries when his daddy dies
Holdin up his two black hands…oh lord!
When a brotha man chokes and can't reach for his throat
Cause they afraid of his two black hands…oh lord!
When I continue to think that we is on the brink of becoming extinct
All because of my two black hands….
Don't ask why…I'm hotter than July
Don't ask why…I'm hotter than July
Don't ask why…I'm hotter than July
Don't ask why…I'm hotter than July
Don't ask why…I'm hotter than July
