Liner Notes: 

I had a dream recently of owning a store and small children that wanted to come inside. But they all were wearing KKK hoods. I told them at first
to leave. They came back again and I let them in a took them to a piano, and mentioned that the keys were both black and white. Decided to write about it.

Lyrics: 

No Hoods
© 2020 Cindy Prince

The children came to my door
But I couldn't see their faces
Their parents had them in white hoods
Thinking they're the better race

I told the kids they couldn't come in
Their attire was of the KKK
I so wanted to hold each one
But instead they went away

Chorus
Please don't teach your children hate
Don't put them in a sheet
Let them grow up loving the world
Be innocent and sweet
Teach them to care for everyone
Until their last heartbeat

Bridge
The children came back again
I opened the door and let them in

I took them to a piano
Showed them the different keys
They were both black and white
And hatred was like a disease

I woke up then from my dream
Thought of the real children living this
Not sure I can change anything
But that would be my wish

Repeat chorus



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I appreciate this lyric a lot-- the piano verse reminded me of the old Stevie Wonder/Paul McCartney duet Ebony and Ivory.
