  • See Billy got picked on in school
    For things, he couldn't change
    He tried his best to play it cool
    But in the seventh grade
    You either fit right in or you don't fit
    That's just the cold hard truth
    I wish that I'd have been the friend that Billy never knew

    I think it's time to come together
    You and I can make a change
    Maybe we can make a difference
    Make the world a better place
    Look around and love somebody
    We've been hateful long enough
    Let the good Lord reunite us
    'Til this country that we love's undivided

    Yup, you either go to church or you're gonna go to Hell
    Get a job and work or you're gonna go to jail
    I just kinda wish we didn't think like that
    Why's it gotta be all white or all black?

    And when we gonna learn
    To try on someone's shoes sometimes? (that's right)
    When we gonna start to see from someone else's eyes?

    I think it's time to come together
    You and I can make a change
    Maybe we can make a difference
    Make the world a better place
    Look around and love somebody
    We've been hateful long enough
    Let the good Lord reunite us
    'Til this country that we love's undivided

    Oh yeah
    Undivided
    Oh yeah

    And we're all the same to God
    No matter what we get His love
    I'm tired of looking left or right
    So I'm just looking up

    I think it's time to come together
    You and I can make a change
    Maybe we can make a difference
    Make the world a better place
    Look around and love somebody
    We've been hateful long enough (hateful long enough)
    Let the good Lord reunite us
    'Til this country that we love's undivided

    C'mon
    Oh yeah
    Undivided
    Oh yeah

    You either go to church or you're gonna go to hell (oh yeah)
    Get a job and work or you're gonna go to jail (undivided)
    I just kinda wish we didn't think like that (yeah baby)
    Why's it gotta be all white or all black?
