"Ebony And Ivory" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don't we?

We all know that people are the same where ever you go
There is good and bad in ev'ryone
We learn to live, we learn to give
Each other what we need to survive together alive

Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord why don't we?

Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory, ooh

We all know that people are the same where ever you go
There is good and bad in ev'ryone
We learn to live, when we learn to give
Each other what we need to survive together alive

Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord why don't we?

Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don't we
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony

    General CommentThis is obviously about racism. We should get over our skin color and live in a peaceful world.
