Sung by Kool & the Gang

Chorus:
Everybody stand up and sing, and say I love you
Stand on up and sing.
Everybody stand up and sing, and say I love you.
Oh yeah.

Take this time to open your heart,
Show your feelings right from the start.
Now is the time to spread love around,
Show your thanks when you dream love found.
That's why I'm saying,

Chorus

Look around at the world, it's so fine,
All these things were made for you and I.
If you try a little piece you will see
That it was meant for you, and it was meant for me.

Chorus

Live you life and love who you are,
Cause all of us were born to go far.
Spread your love around everywhere,
Let somebody know that you care, baby
Some people think that they got it so hard
But all of us were born to be stars.
Now's the time to spread love around,
Show your thanks when your dreams are found.
And that's why I'm saying,

Chorus

Oh, oh, oh, oh, Let it ring
Oh, oh, oh, oh, From your heart.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, Touch somebody's hand,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, And say I love you.

Look around at the world, it's so fine,
All these things were made for you and I.
If you try a little piece you will see
That it was meant for you, and it was meant for me.

Chorus
