Three Dog Night is an American rock band best known for their music from 1968 to 1975. This highly successful vocal-centric rock band formed in 1968 with a lineup consisting of Danny Hutton, Cory Wells and Chuck Negron.

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

Together they grow to see the light

A child is black

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