CLASSIC SONGS ABOUT RESPECTING ONE ANOTHER

What are your favorite songs that basically deal with respect for your fellow man? grouphug


I have a soft spot for...



Sometimes I'm right, but I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the baker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in

I am everyday people
Yeah, yeah

There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on, and so on and scooby-dooby-doo

Ooh, sha, sha
We got to live together

I am no better, and neither are you
We are the same, whatever we do
You love me, you hate me, you know me and then
You can't figure out the bag I'm in

I am everyday people
Yeah, yeah

There is a long hair that doesn't like the short hair
For being such a rich one that will not help the poor one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby-dooby-doo

Ooh, sha, sha
We got to live together

There is a yellow one that won't accept the black one
That won't accept the red one that won't accept the white one
Different strokes for different folks
And so on, and so on and scooby-dooby-doo

Ooh, sha, sha
I am everyday people

AND THIS ONE IS NEW FOR ME BUT OH SO OLD AND GREAT


Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I seen you 'round for a long long time
I really 'membered you when you drink my wine

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I seen you walkin' down in Chinatown
I called you but you could not look around

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I bring my money to the welfare line
I see you standing in it every time

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

The color of your skin don't matter to me
As long as we can live in harmony

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I'd kinda like to be the President
so I can show you how your money's spent

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

Sometimes I don't speak too bright
but yet I know what I'm talking about

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?

I know you're working for the CIA
they wouldn't have you in the Mafia

Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
(repeated 5 times till end)

At this point in history, we have a choice to make
To either, walk the path of love, or be crippled by our hate

Bob Sinclair - World hold on 2006 (not classically old though)

Open up your heart, what do you feel
Open up your heart, what do you feel… is real

The big bang may be a million years away
But I can’t think of a better time to say
World, hold on
Instead of messing with our future, open up inside
World, hold on
One day you will have to answer to the children of the sky
World, hold on
Instead of messing with our future Tell me no more lies
World, hold on Wonder you will have to answer to the children of the sky

Children of the sky… Children of the sky…

Look inside, you’ll find a deeper love
The kind that only comes from high above
If you ever meet your inner child, don’t cry
Tell them everything is gonna be alright

Ch

World, hold on Come one, everybody in the universe, come on
World, hold on Wonder you will have to answer to the children of the sky

Listen now, tell them everything, right here right now
Alright, everybody, here in the world
You are all the children, alright

Together now, unite, and fight… oooh
Open up you heart, no, peace, love for everyone

Oh, no no no no no, alright, to the four corners of the world
Sing it loud, sing it loud, sing it loud loud loud
world hold on on sing it loud, sing it proud
everybody, yeah yeah yeah yeah, oooh
Don’t take no for an answer, no no, not today

Right here,spread love, everybody join together now
One [race], one heart, love and unity, everybody sing
yeah!

Ch

2 that immediately came to mind were

Madonna

Love Makes The World Go Round
written by Madonna and Pat Leonard


Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight
But not with guns and knives
We've got to save the lives
Of every boy and girl
That grows up in this world

Chorus:

There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round
It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round

They think that love's a lie
But we can teach them how to try
Love means to understand
Reach out for someone's hand
'Cause everything you do
Comes back in time to you
We have to change our fate
Before it gets too late

(chorus)

Don't judge a man 'til you've been standin' in his shoes
You know that we're all so quick to look away
'Cause it's the easy thing to do
You know that what I say is true

Love makes the world go round...

Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight

(chorus)

La la la la la la la...




Why's It So Hard
written by M. Ciccone and S. Pettibone


Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
(repeat)

What do I have to do to be accepted
What do I have to say
What do I have to do to be respected
How do I have to play
What do I have to look like to feel I'm equal
Where do I have to go
What club do I have to join to prove I'm worthy
Who do I have to know

Chorus:

I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Before it's too late
Why's it so damn hard

What do I have to learn to know what's right for me
What do I have to know
What am I going to do when I feel righteous
Where do I have to go
Who should get to say what I believe in
Who should have the right
What am I going to do with all this anger
Why do I have to fight

(chorus)

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
(repeat twice)

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, show your sister how

Brothers, sisters, what do I have to say
Brothers, sisters, how do I have to play
Brothers, sisters, who should have the right
Brothers, sisters, why do I have to fight

Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother
(repeat)

Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love

(chorus)

Sing your love
Share your love
(repeat 3 times)

Love your brother now
Show your sister how
Love your brother now
Show your sister
(repeat)



but there are so many others hug
heart
LOVE
♪♫♪♫

My Sly entry - "Don't Call My Nigger, Whitey"

Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger

Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger

Well I was down, across the country
And I heard the voices ring
People talkin' softly to each other
And not a word could change a thing


Don't call me nigger, whitey
Don't call me whitey, nigger...

perfection is a fallacy of the imagination...
