Listen to Red, White, and Blue -    

 

Hurray for the red, while and blue and the yellow,
The green and he black and the brown,
Forty-eight crayons in every box,
For every child, the whole world around!

 

Hurray for the colors in every rainbow
In every land from the east to the west,
Forgive us the small-minded thinking that tells us
One color is better than all of the rest.

 

Hurray for the rivers that pay no heed
To the boundaries they cross on their way to the sea!
Hurray for the wild goose whose home is the sky
From the north to the south, wherever she flies!

 

Hurray for the red of the sunset
The white of the clouds and the blue of the sky,
The purple of passion in every heart,
The gold of compassion in every eye.

 

And if I pledge my heart
To anything at all
Let it be to children who peacefully sleep,
To lions as they lie down with the sheep.
To homes where roots run deep.

 

Hurray for the red of our blood and the white of our
Courage, the blue of our pain.
The green of the hillside, the black of the midnight,
Hurray for the life-giving silver of rain.

 

Hurray for the colors in every rainbow
In every land from the east to the west.
Forgive us the small-minded thinking that tells us
One color is better than all of the rest.

 

Carol Johnson, a “prosocial” Michigan singer-songwriter, inspires, teaches and delights her listeners, encouraging us to lift our vision, to be peaceful, to be good to each other, to ourselves and to the earth. Hundred of thousands of children have been enriched by her popular MISIC WITH A MESSAGE presentations.
