Black and White

Jacob Miller

The ink is black, the page is white
Together we'll learn to read and write

The child is black, the child is white
The whole world looks upon a sight
A beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night

A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see Jah light
To see Jah light

And now at last it's plain to see
They'll have again a liberty
A liberty (yeah)

The ink is black, the page is white
Together we'll learn to read and write

The child is black, the child is white
The whole world looks upon a sight
A beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night

A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see Jah light
To see Jah light

And now the child must understand
This is the law of all the land
All the land

And now the child must understand
This is the law of all the land
All the land
