"Everybody Ought To Know" as written by and Claude Vernell Mcknight....
Everybody ought to know

Do you believe that there's a place in you heart
That could ever help a stranger who is down on his luck?
Would you turn and walk away?
Maybe a smile is all that he would want
(All he would want, oh!)
Someone is afraid
They're feeling no hope at all
It's the color of their skin
That's got them hitting the wall
They say "What's the use in climbing
When the ceiling is just too tall?"

I believe that love is truly (oh, truly divine)
And when we give it we are truly (Oh, truly alive)
It's not hard to be a giver when you take the time
No one gets left behind

Love is a smile on your face
On a summer day
It's the beat of your heart
Every breath you take
It can help the pretty little flowers to grow
Everybody ought to know
Everybody ought to know

Life is so much sweeter
When we open our eyes
When we look into the person
Rather than the disguise
At the bottom of the package
There might be a wonderful prize

I believe that love is truly (oh, truly divine)
And when we give it we are truly (Oh, truly alive)
It's not hard to be a giver when you take the time
No one gets left behind

Love is a smile on your face
On a summer day
It's the beat of your heart
Every breath you take
It can help the pretty little flowers to grow
Everybody ought to know

Just imagine the things we could do
If love was in everyone's heart
It might snow in the desert
If everyone did his part

I believe that love is truly (oh, truly divine)
And when we give it we are truly (Oh, truly alive)
It's not hard to be a giver when you take the time
No one gets left behind

Everybody ought to know

What the world need now is love sweet love
It's the only thing there's much too little of
True love - the ultimate motivator
Stony heart regulator
Everybody ought to know
C'mon, it's what every soul needs
Tell me how you gonna feel?
No love, no deal
Without love, can't walk, can't talk, can't move
Can't live, can't give, can't smile, for awhile
Got to have love
Better ask somebody 'bout love
Everybody ought to know
