We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better

Whoa, oh, oh
Oh, oh, whoa

Livin’ in this crazy world
So caught up in the confusion
Nothin’ is makin’ sense
For me and you

Maybe we can find a way
There’s got be a solution
How to make a brighter day
What do we do

We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let’s do what we can do together

Oh, whoa, oh
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, la, la, la
Only if we try

Got the words on our minds
Got the troubles on our shoulders
Sometimes it seems so much
What we go through

Maybe if we take the time
Time to understand each other
You can learn to make it right
What do we do

We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let’s do what we can do together

Oh, whoa, whoa
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, la, la, la
Only if we try

Oh, oh, oh, la, la, la
Give a little
Oh, ah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, la, la, la
Only if we try

[If everybody took somebody by the hand]
Come on take him by the hand
[Then maybe everyone could learn to love and understand]

Oh, whoa, oh
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, whoa, oh, la, la, la
Only if we try, sing it

Oh, whoa, oh, la, la, la
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, whoa, oh
Only if we try

We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better [Make this a better world]
Try a little more, harder than before
Let’s do what we can do together

Oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, whoa, oh
Only if we try

We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better [Make it a better world]
Try a little more, harder than before
Let’s do what we can do together

Oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
We can really make it better, yeah
Oh, whoa, oh, la, la, la
Only if we try

We got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this a little better
We could do it together, together

Give a little love (Give a little love)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing a Babylon (Sing a Babylon)
Only if we try

Give a little love, have a little hope
Make this a little better [Make it a better world]
Try a little more, harder than before
Let’s do what we can do together
