If you had a choice of color Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right How long have you hated your white teacher Who told you, you love your black preacher Do you respect your brothers woman friend And share with black folks not of kin People must prove to the people A better day is coming for you and for me With just a little bit more education And love for our nation Would make a better society Now some of us would rather cuss and make a fuss Than to bring about a little trust But we shall overcome our beliefs someday If you'll only listen to what I have to say And how long have you hated your white teacher Who told you, you love your black preacher Can you respect your brothers woman friend And share with black folks not of kin I said now people must prove to the people A better day is coming for you and for me With just a little bit more education And love for our nation Would make a better society And if you had a choice of colors Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right And If you had a choice of colors Which one would you choose my brothers If there was no day or night Which would you prefer to be right
