Em Bm C G


Em Bm
A shy black boy, you came into the city.
C G
To learn about life and how his people are living.
Em Bm C G
He's very stubborn, he's just a child and now his life is mystified.


Em Bm
Black Girl, black boy.
C G
The colour of your skin is your pride and joy!
Em Bm C G
Black Girl, black boy. Your life is not destroyed.


Em Bm
He didn't know the school but they called him "Black Boy".
C G
He hardly talked to the girls and boys.
Em Bm C G
Don't be a fool just obey the rules 'cause then you'll learn the truth.


Em Bm
Black Girl, black boy.
C G
The colour of your skin is your pride and joy!
Em Bm C G
Black Girl, black boy. Your life is not destroyed.


Em Bm
And one day you'll grow up to be a man,
C G
to learn and live and understand.
Em Bm C G
Sticks and stones may break your bones but names will never hurt you.
Em Bm C G
You'll be the one who's having fun so just keep learning on.



Em Bm
Black Girl, black boy.
C G
The colour of your skin is your pride and joy!
Em Bm C G
Black Girl, black boy. The colour of your skin is your pride and joy!
