Racism is just so wrong
It makes people feel they don't belong.
It doesn't matter, the colour of your skin;
What's important is what lies within.
STOP all the calling
STOP all the names
STOP all the violence
We're all the same
Why be so nasty,
Why not get along?
If you agree then join in with this song.
Because as I was saying,
It really isn't nice
to feel like you're an outcast.
So before you speak, think twice.
So let's try our best to be a better population,
Spreading joy throughout the world, becoming one whole ...
Feeling pressured, I rack my brains
searching for a solution
If I say yes, I'll be in with the crew
but at school I'll be facing exclusion
I've been warned against the drugs trap
but the temptation's just too strong
I give in, and instantly regret it
I know what I've done is wrong
My new found friends grin at me
