"Give A Little Bit" as written by Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson....
Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
Give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you
There's so much that we need to share
Send a smile and show you care

I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my life for you
So give a little bit
Give a little bit of your time to me
See the man with the lonely eyes
Take his hand, you'll be surprised

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit of my life for you
Now's the time that we need to share
So find yourself, we're on our way back home

Going home
Don't you need to feel at home
Oh yeah, we gotta sing

    General CommentKevin, the Goo Goo Dolls formed in the mid 80s, and "Give a Little Bit" made its first apperance on the 1977 CD, Even in the Quietest of Moments, by Supertramp. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself. Great song.

    General CommentFreddieIsMyIdol is right, I\'ve got the original record in my hands right now, it\'s from \'77, and the Goo Goo Dolls formed in \'85. (I\'ve actually double checked it).
    So, I guess Kevin thinks that the Goo Goo Dolls did a better job then Supertramp.
    I must say, personaly, I like the Supertramp version better.

    General CommentI love this song, it's awesome! Theres a pretty good cover out by the Goo Goo Dolls, but I like this one more. As for the Jesus theory, it works, but I don't think thats what they meant it to be. It was written by Roger Hodgeson when hw was a teenager, and I'm guessing its about wantong a girl, not about Jesus... but I could be wrong.

    General CommentClearly Freddie is just taking the piss. BTW, "the man with the lonely eyes" is Roger Hodgson himself not Jesus, you bible thumper!

    General CommentThe man with lonley eyes is none other than Jesus. Look at any pictures of him(I KNOW it's not him) but that's the way He's depicted in all renditions. Very good song!
