Lyrics

Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, yes sir
I couldn't help but note your shade of melanin
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
'Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin

We've gotta come together
And thank the Maker of us all

We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We're colored people, and they call us the human race
We've got a history so full of mistakes, and we are
Colored people who depend on a Holy grace

A piece of canvas is only the beginning for
It takes on character with every loving stroke
This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart
By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope

We've gotta come together
Aren't we all human after all?

We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We're colored people, and they call us the human race
We've got a history so full of mistakes, and we are
Colored people who depend on a Holy grace

Ignorance has wronged some races
And vengeance is the Lord's
If we aspire to share this space
Repentance is
Repentance is the cure

Well, just a day in the shoes of a color-blind man
Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
As a part of our anatomy

We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We're colored people, and they call us the human race
We've got a history so full of mistakes, and we are
Colored people who depend on a Holy grace

We're colored people, and they call us the human race
We're colored people, and we all gotta share this space
We're colored people, and we live in a tainted world
We're colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl

Oh, we have to get together somehow
Colored people, colored people, yeah
Oh, red, yellow, black and white
Colored people, colored people
