I Love Everything
©1993Will Hale
Go to Top of Page

My life's formula is Peace + Gratitude = Joy
This song is dedicated to Mona, my Fluorite Family, and everyone I love including you! In the spirit of traditional music, I encourage you to write your own additional verses.

I love everything                 I love everything
I love everything           and I love all of you
I love your feet                   I love your toes
I love your heart                 I love your nose
I love your spleen even though it don't show
and I love all of you

Chorus

I love Michael I love Sue
I love Eric, Tom and Lisa too
and I see the rainbow's end in you
Yes I love all my friends

Chorus

I love the mountains                I love the sea
I love the birds                         I love the trees

I really really love the air I breath

Yes I love all the earth

Chorus


Good For You

Truth is Truth. Regardless of what we may think.

What's good for you       What's good for you

Is good for me       Is good for me

When it comes to love       When it comes to love

We're all the same       We're all the same

What's good for you       What's good for you

Is good for me       Is good for me

There's nothing new about the golden rule

As you give you shall receive

We all are one big family

Oh yes it's clear to see

Chorus

Because you're the one who inspires me

To live my life each day

There'd be no fun without someone

Like you for me to love

Chorus


When I'm in Love

Go to Top of Page

Love is so much more than romantic relationships.
It's a place of joy, abundance and ultimate security within each heart.

When I'm in love       I never worry

When I'm in love       All I do is smile

When I'm in love       I feel like sunshine

When I'm in love       I have all I need


Meet Me at the Library

©1993 Will Hale

Go to Top of Page

I am eternally grateful for the amazing resource of the
Public library. The great thing about knowledge is when
you share an idea, you can give it all away and still have
all you had. Cool! In our current age of technology, there
is no freedom without equal access to information.

Meet me at the library       that's where I'm gonna be

Digging buried treasure       where everything is free

Meet me at the library       bring along a friend

Discovery and wonder       the fun will never end

At the library

Imagination is all we need

At the library

our minds will be free

So meet me at the library       bring along a friend

Discovery and wonder       the fun will never end



Come Together

Go to Top of Page

Thank you to all the brave prophets who have stood up for peace. We may not be saying anything new; only we
will keep saying it until it's true
.

We say      we want world peace
We say              Love is our right
We say          stop all the fighting
We say   lets make up our minds

Come Together           one people one heart
Come together      let's give peace a chance
Come together         we only have one world
Come together      we'll sing and we'll dance


They say   we can't do it
World peace it's never been done
They said   only birds fly
Look Mom we're up on the moon

Come together             one people one heart
Come together       let's give peace a chance
Come together         we only have one world
Come together      we'll sing and we'll dance


Dance solo

We say        we want world peace
We say               Love is our right
We say           stop all the fighting
We say   let's make up our minds

Come together             one people one heart
Cometogether       let's give peace a chance
Come together        we only have one world
Come together     we'll sing and we'll dance




We Can Be Different

©1996Arthur Lee

Go to Top of Page

Our acceptance of diversity makes me proud to be an
American. By our example, we can show the world
we can be different and live together.

We can be different and love one another
We can be different and love one another
We can be different and love one another
Because love makes the world go round

Black skin white skin       you might have yellow skin
Red skin brown skin       even the earth has green and blue skin
But on the inside we're all the same
yes on the inside we're all the same

Chorus: We can be different...

There's people from China, Russia, America
others from India, Europe and Africa
but on the inside we're all the same
on the inside we're all the same

Chorus: We can be different...

Christian, Hindu, you might be of the Jewish faith
Buddhist, Muslim, or love might be your only way
but on the inside we're all the same
on the inside we're all the same

Love is what we are and what we'll always be
Love has no prejudice
our true nature is to be free.

Chorus: We can be different... 2X

Love makes the world go round

Well I'm feelin so bad       I wish someone would make me smile

I'm feelin so bad       I wish someone would make me smile

With a friend like you       I can make it through the hard times

Well I feel a little better       I wish someone would make me giggle

Well I feel a little better       I wish someone would make me giggle

Well I feel a little better       I wish someone would make me giggle

With a friend like you       I can make it through the hard times

Well I'm feeling really great       I wish someone would make me laugh

I'm feeling really great       I wish someone would make me laugh

With a friend like you       I can make it through the hard times.



Big Feelings

©1996 Arthur Lee

Go to Top of Page

Feelings are a great compass, since we can only
in two directions: toward Love or into fear.
Besides, life would be boring without dynamics.

I got a big feeling       deep inside
I got a big feeling       I just can't hide
I got a big feeling       can I share it with you?
I want to express myself that's what I want to do

When I'm feeling hungry       that's when I want to eat
When I'm feeling tired       that's when I want to sleep
When I'm feeling sad       sometimes I start to weep
When I'm feeling happy       I want to jump up on my feet

Chorus: I got a big feeling...

When I'm feeling depressed       that's when I sit and pout
When I'm feeling mad       sometimes I want to shout
When I'm feeling worried       that's when I start to doubt
When I'm feeling joyful       I want to let my love flow out

Chorus: I got a big feeling...

When I'm feeling silly       that's when I want to goof around
When I feel like dancin'       I want to hear a jammin' sound
When I'm feeling lost       sometimes I want to be found
When I'm feeling funky       You know it's time to get down

Rap break

Chorus: I got a big feeling...


Ol' Hanna

Ol' Hanna is another name for the Sun I
learned from worksong recordings I found at the
library. Additional thanks to Marc Anderson for
going above and beyond the call of duty.

Sweet golden sunshine on the horizon
I've been hoeing this row just like my heartbeat
Just one more day in one more hour
With my work day done you can hear me holler

Chorus:
Goodnight Ol' Hanna
We'll see you in the morning
Goodnight Ol' Hanna
We'll see you in the morning

All Earth's creatures they love Ol' Hanna
The grass keeps growing and the birds keep talking
As sure as I'm living and I keep on singing
Ol' Hanna keeps me growing another day older

Chorus:
Goodnight Ol' Hanna
We'll see you in the morning
Goodnight Ol' Hanna
We'll see you in the morning



After I'm Gone

©1990 Will Hale

Go to Top of Page

This song is a tribute to our lives influences. I wrote it
while grieving the loss of Brent Mydland, a singer and
keyboard player, who inspired me with his enthusiasm.

I'm going to leave you a picture
I'm going to leave you this song
To help you remember
Even after I'm gone

That I want to love you
I want to love you after I'm gone
I want to love you
I want to love you after I'm gone

So if you really love me
Do me a favor and dance on my grave
There's no need to worry
'cause I'm livin right here inside this song

I want to love you
I want to love you after I'm gone
I want to love you
I want to love you after I'm gone

After I'm gone     after I'm gone
After I'm gone

I won't go       without your love
Singing I won't go       without your love


Dance

Thank you to Armstrong Elementary School Principal,
Tim Berg, and songwriter David Wilcox for teaching me
the incredible power of a whisper.

Sometimes I wonder is the world round
It's only when I jump that my feet leave the ground
I hope you're not busy this coming June
I've booked us a flight for a waltz on the moon

Chorus:
Dance for the thrill of it all
Dance all day
Dance for the joy of it all
Dance all day

When I say I love you, believe that it's true
I will look for the light that is hiding in you
Nobody's noticed what's quite clear to me
There's millions of ways to get to your dreams

Chorus:
Dance for the thrill of it all
Dance all day
Dance for the joy of it all
Dance all day
