    Lyrics

    (Jimmy Webb)

    To my mind, it always seems a little strange
    That people won't do the things you know they ought to
    Some folks say, the world ain't never gonna change
    But in my heart, I do believe
    Those are the folks who guide to
    Can't or for not to

    The day turns bright and night turns wonderful
    Twilight never really brings them to an end
    If white is right and black is beautiful,
    Lord, tell me when can brown begin
    Tell me, people
    When can brown begin

    Fire and water won't be mixed in, so they say
    But I've seen the steamclouds floating high and free
    Salt and pepper don't get in each other's way
    No, they just cooked together
    And when they don't agree, they just let each other be

    The day turns bright and night turns wonderful
    Twilight never really brings them to an end
    If white is right and black is beautiful,
    Lord, tell me when can brown begin
    Tell me, people
    When can brown begin

    Hey, hey
    And night turns wonderful
    Twilight never really brings them to an end
    If white is right and black is beautiful,
    Lord, tell me when can brown begin
    Tell me, people
    When can brown begin
