If I told you I was black
Would you run away far?
Would you hate me
Because I'm not like you are?
If I said I was mixed
Would you look away and say ew?
Would you tease me and call me names
Because I'm not like you?
Now that you know I'm different
When you have a party would you invite me?
Or would you just lie to my face
And still pretend that you're sorry?
There's so many bad people in this world
That it's hard to see the ones that are good
Would yu judge me by the colour of my skin
Or by what's inside like you should?
