Put A Little Love In Your Heart


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 and 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 will be a better place,
And the world will be a better place,
For you and me, you just wait and see.
[Piano Solo]

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 will be a better place,
And the world will be a better place,
For you and me, you just wait and see.

Put A Little Love In Your Heart,
Put A Little Love In Your Heart...

Music and Lyrics by Jackie DeShannon 1969


Three Little Birds


Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.
Singin' Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.

Rise up this mornin', smiled with the risin' sun,
Three Little Birds pitch by my doorstep,
Singin' sweet songs, melodies pure and true,
Saying' "This is my message to you."

Singin' Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.
Singin' Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.
[Piano Solo]

Walk in the sun shine, dance in the gentle breeze,
Three little trees, grow in the summer light,
Sway-in' easy, under the sky so blue,
"This is my message to you."

Singin' Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.
Singin' Don't worry 'bout a thing, every little thing gonna be alright.
Don't worry ... 'bout a thing

Music and Lyrics by Bob Marley 1980
"trees" lyric by Dave Myers



Pennies From Heaven


A long time ago, a million years B.C. the best things in life were absolutely free.
But no one appreciated a sky that was always blue and no one congratulated a moon that was always new.
So it was planned that they would vanish now and then and you must pay before you get them back again.
That's what storms were made for and you shouldn't be afraid for:

Every time it rains it rains
Pennies From Heaven.
Don't you know each cloud contains
Pennies From Heaven.
You'll find your fortune falling all over town,
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down!
Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers.
If you want the things you love, You must have showers.
So when you hear it thunder don't run under a tree,
There'll be Pennies From Heaven
for you and me!
[Piano Solo]

Trade them for a package of sunshine and flowers.
If you want the things you love, You must have showers.
So when you hear it thunder don't run under a tree,
There'll be Pennies From Heaven
for you and me!
There'll be Pennies From Heaven
for you and me!

Music by Arthur Johnston / Lyrics by Johnny Burke 1936



Up To The Mountain


I went up to the mountain because you asked me to;
Up over the clouds, to where the sky was blue.
I could see all around, everywhere,
I could see all around, everywhere.

Sometimes I feel like, been nothin' but tired
and I'll be workin' till the day I expire.
Sometimes I lay down, no more can I do,
then I go on again because you ask me to.

Some days I look down, afraid I will fall,
though the sun shines I see nothing at all.
Then I hear your sweet voice, come and then go,
telling me softly, you love me so.

The peaceful valley just over the mountain;
The peaceful valley few come to know.
I may never get there, in this lifetime
But sooner or later, it's there I will go.
But sooner or later, it's there I will go.

Music and Lyrics by Patty Griffin 2007
