One Love (Bob Marley)
One Love! One Heart! Let's get together and feel all right. Hear the children cryin' (One Love!); Hear the children cryin' (One Heart!), Sayin': give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right; Sayin': let's get together and feel all right. Wo wo-wo wo-wo! Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love!); There is one question I'd really love to ask (One Heart!): Is there a place for the hopeless sinner, Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own beliefs? One Love! What about the one heart? One Heart! What about - ? Let's get together and feel all right As it was in the beginning (One Love!); So shall it be in the end (One Heart!), All right! Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right; Let's get together and feel all right. One more thing! Let's get together to fight this Holy Armagiddyon (One Love!), So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (One Song!). Have pity on those whose chances grows t'inner; There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation. Sayin': One Love! What about the One Heart? (One Heart!) What about the - ? Let's get together and feel all right. I'm pleadin' to mankind! (One Love!); Oh, Lord! (One Heart) Wo-ooh! Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right; Let's get together and feel all right. Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right; Let's get together and feel all right.
The world needs a little more love, a little more hope. I send this out not to the haters, not to the intolerant, as I doubt this will do anything to change them. Rather, I send this out to those who love, do hope and do care. Although they may find it difficult at times, and feel alone. It doesn't matter what religion you subscribe to - be it Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Atheism, or the pursuit of the almighty dollar - don't stop giving a damn. So I send out Bob's words (cause Bob is god) - to inspire and to remind, especially if you're among the Saints of those who pursue the accumulation of wealth in our capitalist society. Speaking of which ... did anyone read the news about Keanu Reeves philanthropy? To paraphrase the good man: "I already have enough money to live a couple of centuries. I don't worry about money anymore." So he gave away about $50MM of his Matrix earnings.
