Music by john oates / lyrics by john oates

Little girl walkin down the street
Gotta subway smile & a heart in heat
Sayin work it for you daddy
Ill work it for you daddy
Work it for you daddy
All nite

Leather boy make the metal scene
Wanna party with the band
Have the hot chicks screamin
Its a video dream

Watch the preacher man work the t.v. screen
Hell take your money, love and promise everything
But there aint no shortcut to salvation

Every man, woman, every boy & girl
Let your love lite shine
Make a better world believe it
People when you feel it

Keep on pushin love
`cause your heart cant deny
Youll be right on time if you
Keep on push in love

See the homeless man on a frozen stoop
He gets the walk-on-by from the business suit
See it happening every day (you know) it dont have to be that way

Got a bomb for me and two for you
Ill blow your scene baby
Then you can blow mine too

Every man, woman, every boy & girl
Let your love lite shine
Make a better world believe it
People if you feel it
Keep on pushin love
