"Let's Live For Today" as written by Giulio Rapetti Mogol and Norman David Shapiro....
When I think of all the worries
People seem to find
And how they're in a hurry
To complicate their minds

By chasing after money
And dreams that can't come true
I'm glad that we are different
We've better things to do

May others plan their future
I'm busy loving you
(One, two, three, four!)

Sha la la la la la live for today
Sha la la la la la live for today
And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey
Sha la la la la la live for today (live for today)

We were never meant to worry
The way that people do
And I don't mean to hurry
As long as I'm with you

We'll take it nice and easy
And use my simple plan
You'll be my lovin' woman
I'll be your lovin' man

We'll take the most from living
Have pleasure while we can
(Two, three, four!)

Sha la la la la la live for today
Sha la la la la la live for today
And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey
Sha la la la la la live for today (live for today)

Baby, I need to feel you inside of me
I got to feel you deep inside of me
Baby, please come close to me
I got to have you now, please, please

Please, please gimme some a-lovin'
To gimme some a-lovin'
To gimme some a-lovin'
To gimme some a-lovin'

Baby, gimme some a-lovin'
Gimme some a-lovin'
Got to have all your lovin'
Gimme some a-lovin'

I need all your lovin'
Gimme some a-lovin'
Now I need all your loving

Sha la la la la la live for today
Sha la la la la la live for today
And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey
Sha la la la la la live for today
(Oh, no, no, no, no, no)
Sha la la la la la live for today

    General CommentThis song is can be interprited as a basic love song, but the deeper meaning is the metaphor for life in the Sixties "Complicate their minds by chasing after money", "We were never ment to worry the way that people do", and even the title... are all basic Hippie philosophy! Peace Out

    General Commentwhy were the 60s so hott?


    a revival of 19th century romanticism.
    natural ideals, emphasis of the soul, carpe diem, etc.
    the song; simple, but so passionate.
    GOODNESS, it's beautiful :)

    General CommentLive for today. Beautiful message from a beautiful song. I was born long after this song was released, yet grew up listening to it since my dad listened to it back in the late sixties. Truly a great (yet ignored) classic.
