"Love Understanding & Respect"

LOVE UNDERSTANDING & RESPECT Lyrics by Carl Carlton And The Songdogs
It's a pitch black night and the telephone keeps ringing
A moment outside of time and outside of s***e
The ventilator's cutting slices in the air
I got your message clear we got to move the children outta here
A touch of velvet down on desolation street
Hear all dem women sing dem love songs
And all us poor boys try so hard just to stay alive
And.... I've found my heart, I found my heart

Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep movin'
Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep on groovin'
Love, understanding and respect - no turnin' back
I'm on a mission for respect and love

Memories of a lifetime, flashing like a movie show
I wish your gentle touch could ease my fension and ma strain
The list of allies seems to be rather thin these days
Look at choice and fate, look at our waste and gain
A touch of velvet down on desolation street
Hear all dem women sing dem love songs
And all us poor boys try so hard just to stay alive
And.... I've found my heart, I found my heart

Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep movin'
Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep on groovin'
Love, understanding and respect - no turnin' back
I'm on a mission for respect and love
(Solo ... I give it to you, you give it to me......)

A touch of velvet down on desolation street
Hear all dem women sing dem love songs
And all us poor boys try so hard just to stay alive
And.... I've found my heart, I found my heart

Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep movin'
Love, understanding and respect - gotta keep on groovin'
Love, understanding and respect - no turnin' back
I'm on a mission for respect and love
