Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/11/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen asked us to find songs about ‘unity’. I found a lot of songs with this theme, and really like this one. I’ve heard it many times, and agree with the lyrics and thoughts of this song.

Thanks for all the fun and interesting prompts, Helen!

“Get Together”, by the Youngbloods, was released in 1966, from their album, “The Youngbloods”. It was written by Chet Powers, and is on the RCA Victor label.

This video is a bit blurry, but I still like it better than just a one photo of the band.

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Love is but a song we sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

[Verse 2]
Some may come and some may go
We will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

[Intro]

[Verse 3]
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both

It’s there at your command

[Chorus]
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

(I said) Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now
