Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger
Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger

Why's all the time in this world
We stumble in the night
When all we have to do is get along
We don't need to fight

And in this great beauty, beautiful beauty
Beautiful world we live upon
Well say it's far too small
Far too small for us not to get along

So saying why can't we just all get along
So saying why can't we just sing this one song
So saying why can't we just all get along
Instead of always saying

Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger
Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger

Why's all the time in this world
We stumble in the night
When all we have to do is get along
We don't need to fight

And in this great beauty, beautiful beauty
Beautiful world we live upon
Well say it's far too small
Far too small for us not to get along

There's more than just one color
To this big world rainbow
And no color shines off any brighter
This my son, you should know, you should know
