    "We Are The World", U.S.A. for Africa


    There comes a time when we need a certain call
    When the world must come together as one
    There are people dying
    Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
    The greatest gift of all

    We can't go on pretending day by day
    That someone, somehow will soon make a change
    We're all a part of God's great big family
    And the truth - you know love is all we need

    ( CHORUS )
    We are the world, we are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    so let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    Well, send'em you your heart
    So they know that someone cares
    And their lives will be stronger and free
    As God has shown us
    By turning stone to bread
    And so we all must lend a helping hand

    ( REPEAT CHORUS )

    When you're down and out
    There seems no hope at all
    But if you just believe
    There's no way we can fall
    Well, well, well, let's realize
    That one change can only come
    When we stand together as one

    ( REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE )


    To this day I just love to hear "We Are The World" - the melody is so simple but beautifully arranged and produced by Daddy Q. Okay, so it woud not hit the top 40 in the 90's, but re-produce it and replace the singers with those like Puff Daddy, R. Kelly, Mariah Carey, Madonna, etc, and chances are it's going all the way to the top! Here's a list of the singers next to their lyric from the 1985 version. . .
