the ink is black

The page is white
Together we learn to read and write
A child is black
A child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight

And now a child can understand
That this is the law of all the land
All the land

The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black
A child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light

And now at last we plainly see
We'll have a dance of liberty
Liberty

The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black
A child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight

You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught
