Verse 1
Yesterday was yesterday, today is today,
Tomorrow will be tomorrow. Black is black,
White is white, and yellow is yellow today.

Verse 2
Gold is gold, silver is silver,
Bronze is bronze. A promise is a promise.
Equality is equality. Freedom is freedom all day long.

A rose is a rose. No compromise.
A rose is a rose. The scent is nice.
Would you ever be makin' a stand,
And realize that a rose is a rose,
And realize that a rose is a rose?
