KOOL & THE GANG


Color Line Lyrics

Little girl in a big town born with a silver spoon
One parent black, one parent white
Made her way to a school
With the children of the rainbow
But inside her eyes she was color blind

But then she met a black child
Who the people call a victim of a messed up system
They both tried but they couldn't see eye to eye
He said, "Girl you gotta choose
Which side you wanna stand on
If you wanna stand with me
I wanna know, who do you think you really are?"
And she said

"Tell me where do I stand
When I stand on the color line?
We're so quick to judge, nobody knows
Tell me what I should be
When I stand on the color line?
I wonder who really knows"

She made her way into college
When the girl turned seventeen
So beautiful, so very wise
She had a vision of a family,
home and her own career
She remained the apple of her parents eye

Then she met a white child
Who said the he loved her,
didn't care about culture
"You can be whatever you want today
But you know you gotta choose
Which side you wanna stand on
If you wanna stand with me
I wanna know, who do you think you really are?"
And she said

"Tell me where do I stand
When I stand on the color line?
We're so quick to judge, nobody knows
Tell me what I should be
When I stand on the color line?
I wonder who really knows"

A grown woman in a bed
At a local sanitarium
The nurse feeds her food
and then combs her hair
In a place where her mind
used to be she remembers
How her life was good when she used to care

Then her mind flashed back
To the night when both men
asked her to marry
But every offer comes along with a deal
Then both said, "You gotta choose
Which side you wanna stand on
If you wanna stand with me
How do you know
How do you know who you really are?"
And she said

"Tell me where do I stand
When I stand on the color line?
We're so quick to judge, nobody knows
Tell me what I should be
When I stand on the color line?
I wonder who really knows"
