Yeah, yeah, I wish there was a video game
To teach you your ancestors name
I wish there was a phone number
Like 1 800 Save Your Brother

I'm thankful for the radio station
Not afraid to put the truth in rotation
There are skirts of information
That you can only get in conversation with

Young people who talk to
Old people, it would make us all
Better people all around, yes, it would

And if old people would talk to
Young people, it would make us all
Better people all around, yes, it would

Yeah, yeah, we went from radio to TV
Now we're going from LP to CD
Don't be afraid to try something new

Yeah, I can help you with the brand new technology
You can help me with the age old philosophy
Together there's so much we can do with

Young people who talk to
Old people, it would make us all
Better people all around, yes, it would

If old people would talk to
Young people, it would make us all
Better people all around, yes, it would

Yeah, yeah, they say that every
Generation gets worse
They call it generational curse
But these problems tend to strive off the sky, yeah

But listen to Mahatma Ghandi's words
And 'Be The Change You Want To See In The World'
Start with yourself and healing will multiply

That's what happens when
Young people who talk to
Old people, it would make us all
Better people all around, yes, it would

If old people would talk to
Young people, it would make us all
Better people all around

Yeah, yeah, if black people
Would talk to white people
It would make us better people all around

Yeah, yeah, if Republican people
Would talk to Democratic people
It would make us diplomatic people all around
