National Anthem Written For Who?

Anthem Written For Who?
 
The song, that song, it's not our song
It hasn't ever been our song, that song
The song, that song, it's not our song
Written when we all were shackled
Not you want us to sing it while being tackled
Will those invisible bars ever be unshackled
The song, that song, it's not our song
Written by a man who hated
Never thought a thought that black people rated
His hatred of blacks was so clearly stated
The song, that song, it's not our song
So whether or not we stay standing or seated
That song still signifies us being mistreated
I guess that's why Kaep is still seated
The song, that song, it's not our song
You call it our national anthem
How can that be when our true freedom is being held for ransom
The song, that song, it's not our song
That song well, we should never have song it for very long
You see Francis Scott Key never intended that song for people like me.
