a brighter day lyrics – the doobie brothers

“a brighter day”

there’s a little bitty boy down in jamaica
who has the gift of seeing second sight
he sees the world and all it’s troubles
but inside his heart the sun is shining bright

so everybody shout to your brother
everybody sing let your spirit fly away
oh oh oh shout to your brother
so all the people have a brighter day

well the network news went down to the island
to try to understand the things he sees
but he just laughed and he waved at the camera
he said open up your mind and follow me

so everybody shout to your brother
everybody sing let your spirit fly away
oh oh oh shout to your brother
so all the people have a brighter day

when people go to war it hurts us all you see
they don’t feel the need to congregate
i may be just a boy but i am not a fool
our leaders need to simplify instead of complicate

so everybody shout to your brother
everybody sing let your spirit fly away
oh oh oh shout to your brother
so all the people have a brighter day

everybody… yeah… everybody

everybody shout to your brother
everybody sing… can ya hear him say
oh oh oh shout to your brother
so all the people have a brighter day

everybody shout… to the little bitty boy
everybody sing… all the people just gotta believe
oh oh oh shout to your brother
i wanna tell ya, all the people have a brighter day

ohh ohh can ya hear what the little boy say
