Welcome To Diverse City
by TobyMac



 

They call us Diverse City, we’re colorful good
It’s like a freak show in your neighborhood
So, if you wanna praise you can come on down
Cause this freak show’s leaving the ground

Up, up and away, baby we don’t play, maybe you thought you was done for the day
He said, she said, I said this, that you can’t get away from your moment of bliss
Stirring, we’ll lure you in and we’ll make room for the shade of skin
Short ones, tall ones, skinny ones, bigger, love is the gun and we pullin’ that trigger
So you send me and I’ll send you hope in the form of a new tattoo
Mine is the shiny city on a hill and yours, of course, is the colors that fill it
We’ll take you high, we’ll take you higher

Now come to the city where you can praise
If you’re black, if you’re white, if you’re yellow or grey
In the morning, in the night, anytime of day
What’s that place – Diverse City
With curls in your hair and braids on the side
Straight shake’em loose, just come on and ride
We’re a body with parts, like you and me
Together we make diversity

Welcome to Diverse City, we’re colorful good
It’s like a freak show in your neighborhood
So, if you wanna praise you can come on down
Cause this freak show’s leaving the ground

Said we’re Diverse City, we’re colorful goods
It’s just a state of mind, we gonna shine the way that we should, baby
So, if you wanna praise you can come on down
Cause this freak show’s leaving the ground

You bring the heart, I’ll bring the soul
I’ll bring the flag, you bring the pole
We’ll fly it high so the whole world knows
The dream of a king ‘bout to unfold

We ‘bout to do this thing for real
Diverse City got mass appeal
So put your hand in the hand of mine
And we’ll spread this love like dandelions
