(chorus)We’re colored people, and we live in a tainted placeWe’re colored people, and they call us the human raceWe’ve got a history so full of mistakesAnd we are colored people who depend on a holy grace[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]A piece of canvas is only the beginning forIt takes on character with every loving strokeThis thing of beauty is the passion of an artists heartBy gods design, we are a skin kaleidoscope
We’ve gotta come together,Aren’t we all human after all?
