Treasure Island

Philip Charles Brown

If I Was White

If I was white, i'd be rich
get a shovel, make a ditch
fill it up with water
workin like I oughta
Build my castle therewithin
And then it would all begin
If I was white, I'd have a maid
Go and get myself spade
and dig a hole where dirt once laid
put all my treaures there within
and there it would all begin
If I was white
I'd shine so bright
A mirror facing the sun am I
I lighten up all the sky
and there it would all begin
If I was white
and you were not
and I did not know what the world has taught
I would love you
and share with you
my castle and my treasure too
I would shine so bright for you

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
