Keepin’ In Touch

I dialed your number, I heard your sweet voice,
You were sayin’ you weren’t at home.
While you were talkin’, I started thinkin’:
Should I wait or hang up the phone?

Automation’s reachin’ ev’ry phase
Of our relation in the micro age.
We’re getting’ caught up in the techno rush;
Somehow we gotta keep the personal touch.

Keepin’ in touch
Get my message, give me a call.
Keepin’ in touch,
Wanna see you, wanna hear it all.
Keepin’ in touch,
The most important thing that I gotta do
Is keep in touch with you.

We telemarket, we teleconf’rence,
You get it all when you got a video.
A friendly user of a home computer
Still needs a friend, ev’rybody knows.

This automation isn’t just a craze,
It’s part of livin’ in the micro age.
There’s a chance that we can gain so much,
Usin’ the tech without losin’ touch.


We’ll Be There

There’s a place they call tomorrow,
somewhere in the reaches of our minds.
To find the road to get there isn’t easy,
there’s so many different signs.
But we’ve got our hopes and we’ve got our memories,
And a feeling that tomorrow will be made of these.

We’ll be there, we’ll be singin’ one more song.
We’ll be there, even though the road is long.
We’ll be there, and the feelin’s growin’ stronger.
When tomorrow comes, together, we’ll be there.

Tomorrow is the rain that falls,
The forest and the dolphins in the sea.
And the kid next door, only four, who tells you
what she wants to be.
It’s the ones who are going hungry, the people left behind,
Who almost gave up dreamin’ of a better time.


And when we make it, let me say,
The thing that i would really like to do
When the band begins to play:
I want to have the first dance with you.


Up With People!

It happened just this morning, I was walking down the street,
The milkman and the postman and policeman I did meet.
There in ev’ry window and ev’ry single door,
I recognized people I’d never noticed before.

Up! Up with people!
You meet ‘em wherever you go,
Up! Up with People!
They’re the best kind of folks we know.
If more people were for people,
All people ev’rywhere,
There’d be a lot less people to worry about,
And a lot more people who care.

People from the south-land and people from the north,
Like a mighty army, I saw them coming forth.
‘Twas a great reunion, befitting of a king!
Then I realized people were more important than things.

Up! Up with people!… etc.

Room For Everyone

We live close together in worlds apart
And need plenty of room inside our hearts.
We share the sky we share the sun.
Can’t we share the world with ev’ryone?

Sometime soon the time must come
When there’ll be room for ev’ryone
A place to walk and a place to run.
Got to be room for ev’ryone.

We’ve got diff’rent dreams with diff’rent names
But it seems our hearts still beat the same.
It’ll take some love it’ll take some trust
To make some room for all of us.

Sometime soon the time must come … etc.

Beat Of The Future

Hey, somebody turn it up, turn it up,
Somethin’ in the sound is changin’.
Hey, somebody tune it in, tune it in,
We’re pickin’ up a brand new station.
Bustin’ through the time zone,
Shiftin’ through the gears,
The sound of tomorrow’s ringin’ in our ears.

It’s the beat, it’s the beat, it’s the beat,
The beat of the future,
Poundin’ like a heartbeat,
The beat of the future,
Rollin’ like a rhythm, ringin’ like a rhyme,
Rippin’ along at the speed of time,
Rockin’ me down to my feet,
The beat of the future.

Everybody pick it up, pick it up,
You can feel it movin’ through you,
And I tell you if you listen now, listen now,
You’ll hear it talkin’ to you.
You can read it in the faces,
The writing’s on the wall.
The heart of tomorrow’s beatin’ in us all!

It’s the beat … etc.

Out in the country, down in the street,
Everybody’s in the band.
You can hear it happen, like thunder clappin’.
The beat is in our hands.

Beat, beat, beat, beat of the future.
Beat, beat, beat of the future.

It’s the beat … etc.
