"Black And White"

(As recorded by Three Dog Night)
DAVID ARKIN
EARL ROBINSON

The ink is black, the page is white
Together we learn to read and write
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight.

And now a child can understand
That this is the law of all the land
All the land.

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day, and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light.

And now at last, they plainly see
They'll have a dance of liberty, liberty.

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day, and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight.

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day, and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light.

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day, and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight.

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day, and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light.

C'mon, get it, get it
Oh, yeah
Yeah, keep it up now
A-run the world
Little boys and, little girls
Yeah, yeah, oh oh oh oh, yeah.
