Knuckle down,
It doesn't matter what colour skin he's locked in,
Knuckle down and love that skin.
Knuckle down,
It doesn't matter if you win or lose a little face,

And you'll never get yourself another chance.
'Bout people being different,

Take a little drum to supply the beat,

Won't you put your knuckles down, boys?
Won't you put you knuckles down?
Love her skin,
Knuckle down,

Love her race,
Knuckle down and love that race.
One bright morning you just might wake when the coin drops,
You can burst the bubble full up with trouble,
(not right!)
Take them by the arm and run to the fields,
Soon the whole world will lay down swords and shield for singing.
For my sake,
For my sake,
Knuckle down,
It doesn't matter what colour skin he's locked in,
Knuckle down and love that skin.
Knuckle down,
It doesn't matter if you win or lose a little face,

And you'll never get yourself another chance.
'Bout people being different,

Take a little drum to supply the beat,

Won't you put your knuckles down, boys?
Won't you put you knuckles down?
Love her skin,
Knuckle down,

Love her race,
Knuckle down and love that race.
One bright morning you just might wake when the coin drops,
You can burst the bubble full up with trouble,
(not right!)
Take them by the arm and run to the fields,
Soon the whole world will lay down swords and shield for singing.
For my sake,
For my sake,
