black and white

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 tv used to be black and white
and all the players Caucasian
now we’ve introduced colour
but still some blighters, spoil the occasion

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 just because of the colour of someone’s skin
or maybe the way their eyes are slanting
is no excuse at all
for any abusive chanting

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 so now, whenever we hear racial insults being directed
we go banana’s, rather than hurl the fruit
we work towards correction
and hope the rest of the world will follow suit

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 whatever their roots, everyone can be a star
so, with the fortitude of the crowd
we should accept everybody for who they are
and all strive for values, of which we can be proud
