lyrics

© 2018 Telamor / Olex Music

With an angry face to me you shout
the nation’s met its fate
Because I’m just like you my friend
I can give it to you straight

Once the world was black and white
And now its living color
To understand what’s going down
You don’t need to be a scholar

Hey Hey Mr. White
Dontcha be afraid
Change is a comin
But we’re gonna be okay

Hey Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right
The world ain’t coming to an end
And the sun will shine its light

I went to Ellis Island
And walked the empty halls
Saw the ghosts of immigrants
Hopeful one and all

I heard din of many tongues
Saw many upturned faces
All coming to a land of promise
From many different places

Hey Hey Mr. White
Dontcha be afraid
Change is a comin
But we’re gonna be okay

Hey Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right
The world ain’t coming to an end
And the sun will shine its light

Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right
Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right

Memory can be deceiving
And paint a rosy picture
Like a Norman Rockwell cover
Of a land of endless summer

It never was so simple
As we would like to think
Nobody’s hands are bloodless
From the same well we all drink

Hey Hey Mr. White
Dontcha be afraid
Change is a comin
But we’re gonna be okay

Hey Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right
The world ain’t coming to an end
And the sun will shine its light

Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right
Hey Mr. White
It’s gonna be all right

The sun will shine its light
Shine on you and me
The sun will shine its light
shine on you and me
