Colors of the Wind [Pocahontas]
by Disney



You think I'm an ignorant savage
And you've been so many places
I guess it most be so
But still I can not see if the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't know
You don't know

You think you own what ever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life has a spirt has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountians
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once never wonder what their worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heran and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle in a hoop that never ends

How high does the sycamore grow
If you cut it down then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For wether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountian
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the earth and still all you'll own is earth
Until you can paint with all the colors of the wind
