Here we go, ain't it grand 
Here we stand on foreign sand
And we're not alone 

Why do we fear what we don't understand 
Can't we reach out our hands to try to just say hello 
Try to plant a seed, fulfill the need
To make it grow, just say hello 
And when you're far from home try to learn from what you see
Your eyes will tell you everything you need

Why do we dread what we don't really know
Come not as concubine, come not as foe
Come with intentions clearly shown 
Try to plant a seed, fulfill the need
To make it grow, just say hello 
And though you're far from home try to learn from all you see
Your mind will tell you everything you need, everything you need

Here we go ain't it grand here we stand on foreign sand
And we're not alone 
Red, yellow, black and white  Every man stand in the light, stand not alone 

It's not a lie, it's not a sham we play for keeps, it's not a scam
No bigotry, we're hand in hand it ain't a cinch, we make a stand 
We learn to live on foreign sand, just say hello 

Why do we despise when we can't even speak 
We keep on spreading lies
As far as we know it's the only way to be
Try to plant a seed, fulfill, the need
To make it grow, just say hello 
And though you're far from home try to learn what you could be
Your heart will tell you everything you need
And though you're far from home try to learn what you could be
Your heart will tell you everything you need

Even though you stand, here you stand on foreign sand
Ain't it grand here we stand, on foreign sand
 Together we stand, on foreign sand
 Together we stand, here we stand 
On foreign sand
