Black Eyed Peas Question

I have the song, "One Tribe" on CD. I think the message is great that we all are equal. Do you think this song is appropriate to have as a "class song"? I would maybe play it at the end of the day a couple times a week. Opinions, please!

I haven't heard the whole song, but I think it would be appropriate if there were no bad words. If I am thinking of the right song, it's on a Pepsi commercial. I think it promotes a great message.

I don't need no leader
That's gonna force feed a
Concept that make me think I need to
Fear my brother and fear my sister
And shoot my neighbor or my big missile
If I had an enemy to [enemy]
If I had an enemy to [enemy]
If I had an enemy, then my enemy is gonna try to come and kill me
Cause I'm his enemy
There's one tribe ya'll
I could see people easily misinterpreting this as no need for leadership/authority, or wanting to question or defy leaders/authority figures. I'll put on my thinking cap for alternatives.

There is the copyright issue to consider...

I believe you can not make a copy of a song and hand it out.

I am thinking of playing this occasionally in my classroom. I heard it at a PD and thought it was neat.

It's probably an old one and I'm just behind the times.


I believe
I believe
I believe
OH
(repeat 4 times between each verse)

When the mountain seems too high
And you don't have the courage nor the strength to climb
In a road you all 'lone in
But still you run though you can not see the finish line
And dark cloud are over you
Your sky's no longer blue
But you marched on straight ahead
And somehow you made it threw
Got to the mountain
And lead the path for me
Your victory made history and now I believe

When it felt like you and we couldn't fight no more
On the ropes and it seemed like you was gonna' run out of breath
When the world was on your shoulders
And the walls were in your way
You leadily made it over
Threw it all you kept the faith
With the hope you set us free
You showed us how to dream
And now we can lift our voices and forever see
Now's the time to look ahead
And think of the heroes of the past
To celebrate this victory
Lets raise the flag cause I believe

And when they tried to keep you down
You kept up your head
Never lose inside
You believed in what was right
You endured to the end
Walked threw the strongest wind
And when our hope was dying
You brought us healing
And now I got something
To tell my children I believe
