Gladys Knight & The Pips – Friendship Train lyrics

Well, well, well, well, well, well
Calling out to everyone across the nation
Said, "The world is in a desperate situation
Stealing, burning, fighting, killing
Nothing but corruption"

It looks like mankind in on the eve of destruction
Oh yes, it is people, let me tell you now
We've got to learn to live with each other

No, no matter what the race, creed or color
I just got to tell you what the world needs now
Is love and understanding get on board the Friendship Train

Everybody shake a hand, shake a hand
People I'm talking about the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, make a friend now
Listen to us now, we're doing our thing
On the Friendship Train

We've got to start today to make tomorrow
A brighter day for our children
Oh, calm down people now we can do it
I can prove it but only if our hearts are willing

Now, so get on board the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand
Yes, I'm talking about the Friendship Train
Come on buddy, shake a hand, make a friend

No, no, no, it don't matter what you look like
People or who you are
If your heart is in the right place
Talking about the right place
You're welcome on the board now

This train stands for justice
This train stands for freedom
This train stands for harmony and peace
This train stands for love, love

Come on, get on the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand
I'm talking about the Friendship Train
Come on buddy, shake a hand, make a friend, now

People listen to me now
Harmony is the key, my sisters and brothers
Oh yes, it is I say
Harmony is the key, my sisters and brothers

People, we can't wait 'cause another day might be too late
Come on, get on the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand, now
I'm talking about the Friendship Train
Get on board and shake a hand, make a friend, now
