Grandpa held the paper
Pretending he could see
But he couldn't read without his glasses on
How can all these people
Afford so many things?
When i was young we wore what we had on?
Chorus:
Mama said
A little love and affection
In everything you do
Will make the world a better place
With or without you
[Dadd2add4]A little love and affection
[C]in everything you do
[Dadd2add4]A better place[C]

Verse:
Slammin' down some late night shots
The artist and the hero compare
Goals and visions and afterthoughts for the 21st century
But mostly came up with nothin'
And the truth was never learned
And the Human Race just kept rollin' on

Chorus:
Rollin' through the fighting
Rollin' through the religious wars
Rollin down the temple walls
And the Church's exposed sores
[Dadd2add4]Rollin through the fightin',
[C]the religious wars
[Dadd2add4]Mostly came up with nothin'[C]

Verse:
Grandpa here's your glasses,
You'll see much better now
Said that young girl of Edith and Earl's
But Grandpa just kept starin',
He was lost in some distant thought
And he turned and he said to that young girl

Chorus:
A little love and affection
In everything you do
Will make the world a better place
With or without you
[Dadd2add4]A little love and affection
[C]In everything you do
[Dadd2add4]A better place
[C]With or without you

Verse:
Hear the rooster crowing
Down on the double E
It's a new morning dawning on the green
Bouncing off the towers
The sun's heading down to the street
The morning businessman's window shades are drawn

Chorus:
Another morning edition
Coming to the porch
Because Grandma puts down the paper
Before Grandpa raises his fork
[Dadd2add4]A little love and affection
[C]In everything you do
[Dadd2add4]With or without you[C]

Harmonica break:
[Dadd2add4]                [C]        [Dadd2add4]Hear the rooster crowing
[C]Down on the Double E
