Ebony and Ivory
African and Caucasian is a song sung by Lois Griffin and Donna Tubbs-Brown in the episode "A White for the Coloreds".

Lyrics

Donna: African
Lois: And Caucasian
Both: Why can't we all get along and stop ragin'?
Donna: That I'm black.
Lois: That I'm white.
Both: Is no reason to fight.
So then let's be friends.
Lois: I'd like to go to the zoo
And see the zebras with you.
Donna: We'd make lots of progress
If we played some chess.
Both: And the tables were turned,
Lois: So I'd be black,
Donna: And I'd be white.
Oh!
African
Lois: And Caucasian.
Both: A tale as old as time, and it just keeps on agin'.
Lois: Like soccer and penguins
And old timey movies,
We live side by side.
Donna: Hey, isn't that groovy?
Or like Orcas and Oreos
And the Bengal white tiger.
You can still be my friend.
Lois: And you can still be my Niger.
Donna (Speaking): 'Scuse me?
Lois: African and Caucasian.
Why can't we all get along and stop ragin'?
Donna (Speaking): Mmm-hmm.
Donna: That I'm black.
Lois: That I'm white.
Both: Is no reason to fight.
So then let's be friends.
Chorus: African.
Caucasian.
Getting along and not ragin'.
African.
Caucasian.
Getting along and not ragin'.
African.
Caucasian.
Getting along and not ragin'.

Trivia

  • In the televised version of the song, the lyric "You can still be by friend and you can still be my Niger." is changed to "Doesn't matter if you're from Poland or Niger." and Donna's speaking lines are removed. Additionally, she and Lois sing this lyric, as well as the opening to the next chorus, together.
