"Colors All Our Own"
Music: Michael Goldberg
Lyrics: Eric Worden

(intro)
brick by brick
stone by stone
we will build a bridge called America
feel the glow
of a rainbow
made with colors all our own

(verse 1)
land of the free
that is what my father promised me
color or creed
since our ancestors were freed

equality
it remains the promise of the land I love
no slavery...
a life of liberty...
it is our destiny

day by day
hand in hand
we will stretch our arms across the promised land
from the north
from the south
to the home of the brave
brick by brick
stone by stone
we will build a bridge called America
feel the glow
of a rainbow
made with colors all our own

(verse 2)
I share the dream
freedom rings from the highest tree
Martin once asked
"Are we really free at last?"
proud of my skin
let me share the heritage I hold within
lines on my face
history can't replace
I'm part of the human race!

one by one
word by word
we will seek our happiness undeterred
from the west (we came)
from the east
to this sanctuary
life by life
thread by thread
we will sew a quilt called America
we belong
make it strong
weaving with colors all our own

(bridge)
give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses
let us teach unity among the classes
people of color tell your family story
we are the fabric of our flying glory
it's time for sharing
it's time for caring
it's time to lift your voice and sing...

day by day
hand in hand
we will stretch our arms across the promised land
from the north
from the south
to the home of the brave
brick by brick
stone by stone
we will build a bridge called America
feel the glow
of a rainbow
made with colors all our own
