Marvin Gaye style plea for equality among different cultures.


Equality - it should be easy
Equality - it should be easy

Can’t judge a book - by its cover
Can’t love one - without loving the other
Just because someone wears a turban
Don’t mean he can’t live like a suburban

What we all want - is really the same
All the same rules - in a different game
Just because someone’s skin is brown
Don’t mean that they can’t live on the same side of town

It’s obvious to me
Love sets you free
Why can’t there be…

Equality - it should be easy
Equality - it should be easy

Your beliefs are different - well,, so are mine
So many cultures - of a different kind
Just because somebody kneels to pray
Don’t change what their heart really wants to say

You can’t see the forest - without the trees
We all stand tall - then fall to our knees
Just because someone’s God is dead
Don’t mean you can’t live with what’s left in his head

It’s obvious to me
Everyone can see
Why cant there be…..
