I've been around a while
I know wrong from right
Learned a long time ago
Things ain't always black and white
Just like you can't judge a book by the cover
We all gotta be careful
How we treat one another

Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
We're all of the same

A man in Louisiana
He never called me by my name
He said "Boy, do this" and "Boy, do that"
But I never once complained
I knew he had a good heart
But he just didn't understand
That I needed to be treated
Just like any other man

Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
We're all of the same

I sat my child down
When he was old enough to know
I said out there in this big wide world
You're gonna meet all kind of folks
I said son it all comes down to just one simple rule
That you treat everybody just the way
You want them to treat you
Yeah

Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
We're all of the same (skin deep)

Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
Skin deep
Skin deep
Underneath we're all the same
We're all of the same
Yeah
