Black or White

by Michael Jackson
rap lyrics by Bill Bottrell

I took my baby
On a Saturday bang
Boy, is that girl with you?
Yes, we’re one and the same

Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle
Has happened tonight

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

They print my message
In the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them
I ain’t second to none

And I told about equality
And it’s true
Either you’re wrong
Or you’re right

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
So when the going gets rough
I ain’t scared of your brother
I ain’t scared of no sheets
I ain’t scared of nobody
Girl, when the goin’ gets mean

[rap by Bill Bottrell]
Protection
For gangs, clubs, and nations
Causing grief
In human relations
It’s a turf war
On a global scale
I’d rather hear
Both sides of the tale
See, it’s not about races
Just places
Faces
Where your blood comes from
Is where you space is
I’ve seen the bright get duller
I’m not going to spend my life
Being a color

Don’t tell me you
Agree with me
When I saw you
Kicking dirt in my eye

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said
If you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said
If you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

It’s black
It’s white
It’s tough
For them to get by
It’s black
It’s white

It’s black
It’s white
It’s tough
For them to get by
It’s black
It’s white
