This is just a song to say
That I'm proud for what they are
And I hope my world can take me
Half that far

Way back in mccarthy's day
My parents left the usa
Young rebellious lovers
They left behind a nation far too proud
And powerful to say
That love transcends all colors
Some black men turned against my father
Some white men turned against my mother
Each race has their place they all would say

And with a past so battle worn
And a future begging to be born
They found a life that's growing still today

And glancing thru the years
And living thru their fears
I hope they can accept my goals
A bit confused, a bit unclear

And all the years behind me now
Seem like a book I've read and yet somehow
I still don't understand all the words
All the black and all the white
That rest in me that make me fight
Remind me of all the knowledge left to learn
Still some black men turned against my father
Some white men turned against my mother
Each race has their place they all would say
With a past so battle worn
And a future begging to be born
They found a life that's growing still today

And glancing thru the years
And living thru their fears
I hope they can accept my goals
A bit confused, a bit unclear

This is just a song to say that I'm proud for what they are
And I hope my world can take me half that far
