Black Man Lyrics

First man to die
For the flag we now hold high
Was a black man
The ground were we stand
With the flag held in our hand
Was first the redman's

Guide of a ship
On the first Columbus trip
Was a brown man
The railroads for trains
Came on tracking that was laid
By the yellow man

We pledge allegiance all our lives
To the magic colors red, blue and white
But we all must be given
The liberty that we defend
For with justice not for all men
History will repeat again
It's time we learned
This world was made for all men

Heart surgery
Was first done successfully
By a black man
Friendly man who died
But helped the pilgrims to survive
Was a redman

Farm workers rights
Were lifted to new heights
By a brown man
Incandescent light
Was invented to give sight
By the white man

We pledge allegiance all our lives
To the magic colors red, blue and white
But we all must be given
The liberty that we defend
For with justice not for all men
History will repeat again
It's time we learned
This world was made for all men

Here me out

Now I know the birthday of a nation
Is a time when a country celebrates
But as your hand touches your heart
Remember we all played a part in America
To help that banner wave

First clock to be made
In America was created
By a black man
Scout who used no chart
Helped lead Lewis and Clark
Was a redman

Use of martial arts
In our country got it's start
By a yellow man
And the leader with a pen
Signed his name to free all men
Was a white man

We pledge allegiance all our lives
To the magic colors red, blue and white
But we all must be given
The liberty that we defend
For with justice not for all men
History will repeat again
It's time we learned
This world was made for all men

This world was made for all men
This world was made for all men
This world was made for all men
God saved His world for all men

All people
All babies
All children
All colors
All races
This world's for you

And me
This world
My world
Your world
Everybody's world

This world
Their world
Our world
This world was made for all men

Here me out
