What the World Needs Now


Read some encouraging words from decades past.


Thank you Songwriters: Hal David / Burt Bacharach, 1965.


What the world needs now is love, sweet love

It's the only thing that there's just too little of

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

No not just for some, but for everyone

Lord, we don't need another mountain

There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb

There are oceans and rivers enough to cross

Enough to last 'til the end of time

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

It's the only thing that there's just too little of

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

No, not just for some, but for everyone

Lord, we don't need another meadow

There are corn fields and wheat fields enough to grow

There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine

Oh listen, Lord, if you want to know

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

It's the only thing that there's just too little of

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

No, not just for some, oh, but just for every, every, everyone


Thank you Songwriters: Jackie DeShannon, Randy Myers and Jimmy Holiday, 1969.


Think of your fellow man

Lend him a helping hand

Put a little love in your heart

You see it's getting late

Oh, please don't hesitate

Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place

And the world will be a better place

For you and me

You just wait and see

Another day goes by

Still the children cry

Put a little love in your heart

If you want the world to know

We won't let hatred grow

Put a little love in your heart

And the world (And the world) will be a better place

All the world (And the world) will be a better place

For you (For you) and me (And me)

You just wait (Just wait) and see, wait and see

Take a good look around

And if you're looking down

Put a little love in your heart

I hope when you decide

Kindness will be your guide

Put a little love in your heart

And the world (And the world) will be a better place

And the world (And the world) will be a better place

For you (For you) and me (And me)

You just wait (Just wait) and see

People now, put a little love in your heart

Each and every day

Put a little love in your heart

There's no other way

Put a little love in your heart

It's up to you

Put a little love in your heart

Come on and

Put a little love in your heart

You've got to

Put a little love in your heart


And from En Vogue in 1992...


Free your mind, and the rest will follow

Be color-blind, don't be so shallow

Free your mind, and the rest will follow

Be color-blind, don't be so shallow

Free your mind!

Why, oh why must it be this way?

Before you can read me, you got to learn how to see me!


Peace everyone. It's 2021. Mindfulness is more important than ever.
