Alright
Yeah

Look at all the people, livin' on the street
It don't seem they got nothin' to eat
Children play with guns and they ain't toys
What will become of all my girls and boys?

It don't take brains to figure it out
Ev'ryday the newspaper headlines shout
It's gonna take a miracle from above
Either that just one drop of love

(One drop of love)
One drop of love will make the world alright
(One drop of love)
One drop of love will unite black and white
(One drop of love)
One drop of love to make a new start
(One)
One drop of love everyone's heart

I know
I know
I know

It's getting harder everyday to make ends meet
When you do, it's hard to stay on your feet
Who are your real friends? You can't keep track
While you're wathin' you front, you're gettin' stapped in the bag

I ain't no genius but I know
There's only one way to make this hatred go
People, I tried it, now I'm beggin' you
(Just)
Reach in your heart and give up one drop too

(One drop of love)
One drop of love will make the world alright
(One drop of love)
One drop of love will unite black and white
(One drop of love)
One drop of love to make a new start
(One)
One drop of love everyone's heart

One drop of love, will plant a seed
Maybe everyone will follow our lead
Then they'll see, one drop can grow
'Cause wilt enough drops a whole river flows
A whole river flows from one drop of love

(One drop of love)
Yeah
(One drop of love)
Hmm
(One drop of love)
Ye, one drop, aha

I ain't no genius but I know
There's only one way to make this hatred go
People, I tried it, now I'm beggin' you
(Just)
Reach in your heart and give up one drop too

(One drop of love)
One drop of love will make the world alright
(One drop of love)
One drop of love will unite black and white
(One drop of love)
One drop of love to make a new start
(One)
One drop of love everyone's heart

(One drop of love)
One drop of love will make the world alright
(One drop of love)
One drop of love will unite black and white
(One drop of love)
One drop of love to make a new start
(One)
One drop of love everyone's heart

One drop of love, one drop of love
