Someday I know there will be a time
When we all have to come together as one.
So when will we let this war be the end,
And let the love begin? Tell me.

When I was coming up, (coming up)
I got old fashioned love (old fashion)
Never talked to mama (no way)
Always knew what a kids place was
I feel much frustration (frustration)
Gotta teach this generation (what)
To love one another again (lets love)

[Chorus:]
If you wanna learn (respect)
You gotta live (respect)
You gotta show the world what it is (what it has to be)
If you wanna get (respect)
You gotta give (respect)
Share it with everyone that lives.

(Parents)
Father father watch (they better watch)
What you say and do (ok)
Twenty years from now, your kids will be you (you better know)
If you teach them tho (respect)
The right way to go (let them feel love)
What comes around, goes around, show them that!!

If you wanna learn (respect)
You gotta live (respect)
You gotta show the world what it is (you gotta show the world what it is)
If you wanna get (respect)
You gotta give (respect)
Share it with everyone that lives (spread love to everyone)

[Hook:]
Watch what you say and do (you better watch)
Children, they learn from you (this is true)
Don't let the cycle end (no)
Let's make the love begin (let's start)
Hold on don't give up yet (not yet)
Give love and give respect (100%, 100% come on)

[Chorus:]
If you wanna learn (respect)
You gotta live (respect)
You gotta show the world what it is (what it has to be)
If you wanna get (respect)
You gotta give (respect)
Share it with everyone that lives.

[Hook:]
Watch what you say and do (you better watch)
Children, they learn from you (this is true)
Don't let the cycle end (no)
Let's make the love begin (let's start)
Hold on don't give up yet (not yet)
Give love and give respect (100%, 100% come on)

(spoken)
This is simple things that make me feel like I'm in a trance,
Floating on top of the world, and only love can make me dance.
Yes, only love can make me dance.
