A Three Dog Night Moment


On the fourth of July I had a "Three Dog Night" moment in Central Park (which can be seen in the photograph atop this entry). I thought of their song when I saw these children playing. Here's the link to the 1972 song + here are the lyrics.

"The ink is black
The page is white
Together we learn to read and write

A child is black
A child is white
A whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight

And now a child can understand
That this is the law of all the land
All the land

The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night

A child is black
A child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light

And now at last we plainly see
We'll have a dance of liberty

The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and then by night

A child is black
A child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight
A beautiful sight

The world is black
The world is white
It turns by day and the by night

A child is black
A child is white
Together they grow to see the light
To see the light"
