Salt & Pepper

We were known as Salt and Pepper
We were women quite unique
Wherever we went men would call out
Hey Salt and Pepper, your sweet
She wore an Afro and I had long blonde hair
We fought against racism and for women’s rights everywhere
We listened to speeches from Kennedy and King
Their words were quite amazing
and we knew we were doing the right thing
It was unconscionable that this country was not truly free
But Salt and Pepper were determined to stand for liberty
We compared notes on how the fight was progressing
But during all the violence we felt it was regressing
We knew of Rosa Parks and how she continued to fight
And she made us proud because she stood for Civil Rights
The unrest was disturbing but it would not end
Until all races understood that we could all be friends
Salt and Pepper made a pact to wait for victory
And we continued on so people would be free
We talk about the past when we get together
And we realize we’re still Salt & Pepper
