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 wherever we go
There is good and bad in everyone
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 wherever we go
There is good and bad in everyone
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
