Annotationen

Dieser Top-Hit spricht von Toleranz und benutzt einen «Jesus Loves the Little Children» um die geteilte Nation (Hippies – Squares, Afroamerikaner*innen – Weisse) wieder herzustellen.

We shouldn't care
About the length of his hair
Or the color of his skin

Lyrics

[Chorus:] Jesus loves the little children All the little children of the world Red and yellow, black and white They are precious in his sight Jesus loves the little children of the world Everything is beautiful In its' own way Like a starry summer night Or a snow covered winter's day Everybody's beautiful In their own way Under God's heaven The world's gonna find a way [Verse 1:] There is none so blind That is he who will not see We must not close our minds We must let our thought be free For every hour that passes by You know the world Gets a little bit older It's time to realize That beauty lies In the eyes of the beholder [Chorus:] Everything is beautiful In its' own way Like a starry summer nights Or a snow covered winter's day Ah, sing it, children Everybody's beautiful In their own way Under God's heaven The world's gonna find a way [Verse 2] We shouldn't care About the length of his hair Or the color of his skin Don't worry about what shows from without But the love that lives within We're gonna get it all together now Everything gonna work out fine Just take a little time To look on the good side my friend And straighten it out in your mind [Chorus:] Everything is beautiful In its' own way Like a starry summer nights Or a snow covered winter's day Ah, sing it, children Everybody's beautiful In their own way Under God's heaven The world's gonna find a way One more time Everything is beautiful In its' own way Like a starry summer nights
