[1988]
Scritta da Mick Jones e Don Letts
Nell’album intitolato “Tighten Up, Vol. 88”

Tighten Up, Vol. 88
A stranger's a friend
You just don't know
With a shake of the hand
We could give it a go
I look kinda pale
They call me gringo
You got funny hair
They call you negro

Under the skin say we're all the same
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
Funny names

I'm not like you
You're not like me
Don't think that will ever change
It's obvious to see
You're not like me
I'm not like you
Don't mean that we can't get along
And like each other too

'Cause under the skin say we're all the same
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
Funny names

Recognise the difference
Give thanks we ain't the same
Variety's the spice of life
Hey fella, what's your name?
Some live in the city
Some come from ghettoes
Eat funny food
Speak funny lingo
Yes a stranger's a friend
You just don't know
Forever by your side
Just like a shadow

'Cause under the skin say we're all the same
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
How come when I turn my back
You call me funny names
Funny names
How come you call me funny names
Funny names…
