The Ones You Love

Written almost 20 years ago, the song is as relevant today as ever. Some things, unfortunately, never change. Bottom line - when one is living a good life and chooses to ignore the needs of others, the least he can do is tend to the ones he loves.



The Ones You Love

Children cry on the street
They don't have enough to eat
Mothers wait for days on end
A hopeless situation they can't mend

Is it good for you?
Is it good for me?
I don't know how the world can sleep
It's just not right to close the door turn out the lights

They'd better be the ones you love
The children ought to get some love
If no one else should ever get enough
They'd better be the ones you love

Daddy waits there in line
A little work he hopes to find
Something wrong with times like these
It's enough to bring a man down to his knees

Is it good for you?
Is it good for me?
I don't know how the world can sleep
It can't be right to close the door turn out the lights

They'd better be the ones you love
The children ought to get some love
If no one else should ever get enough
They'd better be the ones you love

They'd better be the ones you love
The children ought to get some love
If no one else should ever get enough
They'd better be the ones you love
Thinking of the children
The children need oh some love
You'd better be thinking about the children
The children need out love
Better be, you better be thinking of
They better be the ones you love
Better be, you better be
Better be the ones you love
- Rick Astley
