Barbra Streisand – People (From A Happening In Central Park) lyrics

At this time I should like very much to thank my wonderful conductor.
And what he does is this... It's sort of... It reminds me of an old
Mae West picture... Uh... I don't know how I made this association,
But... You see, he makes this orchestra sound as if there were 70 pieces.
And it reminds me the scene where Mae was teaching in a classroom
And she said: [imitating Mae West's voice] "One an' one is two... Two
An' two is four... Four an' four makes ten, if you have worked right! "
And I would also like to say that I'm thrilled and delighted... I can't
Believe there's 128, 000 people out there... "FEENTASTIC!" Ah! Ah!
Thank you... But I would like to thank you, you lovely bunch of...

People, people who need people,
Are the luckiest people in the world.
We're children, needing other children,
And yet letting a grown-up pride,
Hide all the need inside,
Acting more like children than children.
Lovers are very special people,
They're the luckiest people in the world
