Choice Of Colors
The Impressions Lyrics


If you had a choice of colors
Which one would you choose my brothers
If there was no day or night
Which would you prefer to be right

How long have you hated your white teacher
Who told you, you love your black preacher
Do you respect your brother's woman friend
And share with black folks not of kin
People must prove to the people
A better day is coming, for you and for me
With just a little bit more education
And love for our nation
Would make a better society

Now some of us would rather cuss and make a fuss
Than to bring about a little trust
But we shall overcome our beliefs someday
If you'll only listen to what I have to say

And how long have you hated your white teacher
Who told you, you love your black preacher
Can you respect your brother's woman friend
And share with black folks not of kin

I say now people must prove to the people
A better day is coming for you and for me
With just a little bit more education
And love for our nation
Would make a better society

And if you had a choice of colors
Which one would you choose my brothers
If there was no day or night
Which would you prefer to be right
And if you had a choice of colors
Which one would you choose my brothers
If there was no day or night
Which would you prefer to be right
If you had a choice of colors
Which one would you choose my brothers

I was a little girl when this song came out. I still love this song and it is so relevant for what is happening now in the USA! We are tired and a change is coming! I AM BLACK and I Am PROUD to be BLACK!

Dale Painter

You better, peace

Adrienne Robinson

Oh Yes

Owetta Fay Robinson

I wonder how many of our Prophets of soul knew how powerful their music was and still is! In fact their words are more true today than in the Spiritual 70's, the late 60's, and filtered, somewhat, through the 80's.
