HOPE

 

People say you gotta look out for number one

Next thing you know, Little Johnny’s got a gun

Mom and Dad, they don’t know what happened there

Do they not know, or maybe they just don’t care

Yeah, Little John don’t understand

How the hell he gonna grow up to be a man

Say, Little John, you gotta find some hope in this world.

 

Hey, yeah, there’s a lot of hope in this world

Hey, yeah, listen to this bird

You gotta keep a smile, stand up straight,

Love your neighbor, do what’s right

Then you’ll find there’s a lotta hope in this world

 

Well, I have always tried to be a better person

No matter how I try, jive gets in the way

It’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture

But remember, y’all, together we are one

But there’s jealousy, greed & pride,

Insecurity, things to make the soul die

It’s time we find a place for hope in this world

 

Hey, yeah, there’s a lot of hope in this world

Hey, yeah, listen to this bird

You gotta keep a smile, stand up straight,

Love your neighbor, do what’s right

Then you’ll find there’s a lotta hope in this world

 

Take it to the bridge!

 

The other day, I was feeling stressed and down

My friend told me, “Just try to stay open-hearted,

Cuz you can find joy in every moment of every day

Next thing you know, it’s time to get the party started”

Just give a lot, don’t expect much

Soon you’ll find it’s more than enough

That’s how you’ll find a place for hope in this world

 

Hey, yeah, there’s a lot of hope in this world

Hey, yeah, listen to this bird

You gotta keep a smile, stand up straight,

Love your neighbor, do what’s right

Then you’ll find there’s a lotta hope in this world

 

Yeah, one more time

You gotta keep a smile, stand up straight,

Love your neighbor, do what’s right

Then you’ll find there’s a lotta hope in this world

 

You gotta keep a smile, stand up straight,

Love your neighbor, do what’s right

Then you’ll find there’s a lotta hope in this world
