Lyrics: How Many?
(Children’s Song)

Verse 1:
How many shades are there of white, brown, and tan?
Maybe as many as the grains of the sand.
How many colors of our hair and iyr eyes?
Maybe as many as the stars in the skies.

All of us are different.
All of us are free
To choose how we act
And to choose what we’ll be.

Verse 2:
How many talents are there, how many minds?
Maybe a hundred million various kinds.
How many hearts are there and how many ways
To sleep through the nights and to live through the days?

Verse 3:
How many places will I act as I should,
Say something useful and then do something good?
If I use fairness and be gentle and kind,
How many happy times and friends will I find?
