Darius Rucker Parody

All White
(parody of Darius Rucker's "Alright")

All white, all white,
Yeah, it's all white, all white

Don't take a Sherlock observation
To see the difference that's so well defined
My workplace lacks diversity
Been like that, don't ya know, since the days of Patsy Cline

You can throw a dart and hit the same skin tone
Sometimes it makes a brother feel mighty alone

Cause I've got some shade here in my skin,
But the industry that I'm workin' in
Oh, it's all white, all white
Now I've got boots under my feet
And the whole music chart except for me
It's all white, all white
Just check out CMT
Yeah, it's all white but me

It's no big deal, no, to me it ain't no drama
That I'm an anomaly yes it's true
If not for Charley, I'd be Obama
But the bigs have pride in me as long as I pay dues

Now that I'm well on my way to being a star
I wish Coe'd stop telling me to park his car

Oh, I've got some shade here in my skin,
But the industry that I'm workin' in
Oh, it's all white, all white
Well I've got boots under my feet
And the whole music chart except for me
It's all white, all white
Just check out GAC
Yeah, it's all white but me

It's all white but me, yeah yeah
When I look out at crowds there's just one thing missin'
Nobody in the audience can dance in rhythm

Oh, I've got a whole bunch of melanin,
But the industry that I'm workin' in
Oh, it's all white, all white
Well I've got boots under my feet
And the whole CMA show but me
It's all white, all white
Check out Walmart CDs
Yeah, they're all white but me

  4. Your best parody yet. Especially like the "If not for Charley, I'd be Obama" line. Gold, Jerry, gold.

  5. I'm with Michael. This is brilliant all around, but the Charley Pride/Obama reference was my favorite too.

  6. That is really, really well done. The funny part is, I could actually hear Rucker singing this. (and I loved the dig at David Allen Coe)
