Black Or White
(Michael Jackson and Bill Bottrell)

"Hey!"
"What?"
"Turn it off!"
"Dad, this is the the best part!"
"Turn it off!"
"No!"
"It's too late for this, turn it off!"
"Dad, this is the best part, come on!"
"No, turn it off now!"
"No, this is the...I wanna listen to it, ok?"

"Yeah, right...too late? Sure. Eat this!"

I took my baby on a Saturday bang
"Boy, is that girl with you?"
Yes, we're one and the same
Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight
But if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them
I ain't second to none
And I told about equality
And it's true either you're wrong or you're right
But if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
Sew when the going gets rough
I ain't scared of your brother
I ain't scared of no sheets
I ain't scared of nobody
Girl when the going gets mean

Protection for gangs, clubs, and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It's a turf war on a global scale
I'd rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it's not about races
Just places, faces
Where your blood comes from
Is where your space is
I've seen the bright get duller
I'm not gonna spend my life being a color

Don't tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye
But if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

I said if you're thinkin' of being my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

I said if you're thinkin' of being my brother
It don't matter if you're black or white

Alright, alright, alright
Ooh ooh, alright
Yeah, yeah, yeah, now
Alright, alright
Ooh ooh, come on, come on
Yeah, yeah, yeah, now
Alright

Ooh ooh
It's black, it's white
It's tough for them to get by
Yeah, yeah, yeah
It's black, it's white, whoo

Ooh ooh
It's black, it's white
It's tough for them to get by
Yeah, yeah, yeah
It's black, it's white, whoo
