Just because my skin is brown It don't define who I am I could be a porcupine Or I could be a little lamb
Please don't try and judge me Only by the colors you have seen To love me is to know me Whether red, yellow, black or green
(Chorus) Color is skin deep But true beauty lives on and on Color is skin deep But true beauty lives on and on
Her skin might be ivory And he might be from Japan But that don't make a better woman That don't make a lesser man
Please don't try to judge 'em Only by the colors you have seen To love 'em is to know 'em Whether red, yellow, white, or green
(Bridge) Color is the shape of the rainbow Color is the tint of the sky It's not a person, place or thing It's only a description of you and I Like the colors on the frame of a house Will not tell you of the colors within So why would I try to judge A man by the shade of his skin?
