Lyrics:

Hello, my friend
So happy to see you again
I was so alone
All by myself just couldn't make it

With the wind blown round
Have you heard baby
A whole lot a people comin' right on down
Comunication, yeah, is comin' on strong
I don't give damn baby
If your hair is short or long
I said get outta your grave ha
Oh everybody is dancin' in the street
Hey
Do what you know
Don't be slow
You got to practice what you preach
Yeah ha
Cause it's time for you and me
Come to face reality
Forget about the past baby
Things ain't what they used to be
Keep on strait ahead
Keep on strait ahead
Strait ahead baby
Strait ahead baby
Whoo

We got to stand side by side
We got to stand together and organize
Send power to the people, that's what their screamin'
Freedom of the soul
Pass it on, pass it on, to the young and the old
You gotta tell the truth and the truth yeah
They're gonna need a whole lot of lives
Because one of these days baby
They'll be runnin' things
So when ya give 'em love you better give it right
Woman and child and man and wife
The best love to have is the love of life
That's about all baby

Hello, my friend
It's so good to see you again
Now I've been all by myself
I don't think I could make it alone
I don't think I could make it alone
