Lyrics: How Many? <br/>(Children’s Song) <br/> <br/>Verse 1: <br/>How many shades are there of white, brown, and tan? <br/>Maybe as many as the grains of the sand. <br/>How many colors of our hair and iyr eyes? <br/>Maybe as many as the stars in the skies. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>All of us are different. <br/>All of us are free <br/>To choose how we act <br/>And to choose what we’ll be. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/>How many talents are there, how many minds? <br/>Maybe a hundred million various kinds. <br/>How many hearts are there and how many ways <br/>To sleep through the nights and to live through the days? <br/> <br/>Verse 3: <br/>How many places will I act as I should, <br/>Say something useful and then do something good? <br/>If I use fairness and be gentle and kind, <br/>How many happy times and friends will I find? <br/>
