Without the civil rights act where would we be?
It ensures equal rights for all,
Discrimination was ruled out for you and for me.

Without the civil rights act where would we be?
It ensures I’m entitled to my education,
Desegregation was ruled out for you and for me.

Without the civil rights act where would we be?
February 10, 1964, the house of reps. passed the law,
Thinking of everyone, despite their flaws.
