    [1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]

    Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, 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

    (chorus)
    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

    [1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]

    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?

    (repeat chorus)

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

    [1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]

    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

    (repeat chorus)

    We're colored people, and they call us the human race
    [Oh, colored people]
    We're colored people, and we all gotta share this space
    [Yeah we've got to come together somehow]
    We're colored people, and we live in a tainted world
    [Red and yellow, black and white]
    We're colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl
    [Colored people, colored people, colored people, colored people, yeah]
