Lyrics:
BOOTSTRAPS BREAK by Jennifer Milligan
I was born a bootstrap girl gonna change the world Born a bootstrap girl on a pretty pedestal
But this bootstrap living wears down my soul
Born a Bootstrap kid, afro hair chocolate skin He loves his country that only tolerates him Pulls up on bootstraps made way too thin.
Bootstraps break, oh those bootstraps break Resentment swarms under a festering soul Bootstrap living’s impossible.
Born a bootstrap girl, served her country with pride. Smart as a whip, troubles run-in’ by her side
Sings the bootstrap blues, straps she can’t find.
Bootstraps break, oh those bootstraps break Resentment swarms under a festering soul Bootstrap living’s impossible.
Born a bootstrap boy, milky white like me.
Sees the insidiousness in this idiocracy.
Fight bootstrap living in this land of the free.
No more Bootstrap living in this land of the free.
