Colors Of The Wind by Vanessa Williams

paint with the colours of the wind

She also urges him to accept humans who are different in appearance and culture and to learn from them. Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

If you cut it down, then you'll never know And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon For whether we are white or copper-skinned We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain Need to paint with all the colors of the wind You can own the earth and still All you'll own is earth until You can paint with all the colors of the wind. If you cut it down then you'll never know And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon For whether we are white or copper skinned We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain We need to paint with all the colors of the wind You can own the earth and still All you'll own is earth until You can paint with all the colors of the wind. There is some debate over where the song begins within the narrative of the movie.
