Put A Little Love In Your Heart
David Ruffin Lyrics


Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart
You see, it's getting late, oh, please don't hesitate
Put a little love into your heart

And the world will be a better place
Oh and the world will be a better place for you and just for me
You just wait and see

Another day goes by, still the children cry
Put a little love into your heart
If you want the world to know, we won't let hate grow, no
Put a little love into your heart

And the world will be a better place
I know you know that I know, the world will be a better place
For you and me
Oh you just try, just wait and see

Take a good look around, oh if you're lookin' down
Put a little love into your heart
I hope when you decide, that kindness be your guide
Put a little love into your heart
And the world, oh will be a better place
I know you know that the world is gonna be a better place
For you and me, oh you just wait and you'll see
Oh people now, put a little love into your heart this evening
Oh put a little love into your heart
Ain't no harm baby in letting kindness be your guide
Don't it open up your eyes
Oh, try putting a little love into your heart
Oh and you'll see that the world

This man still brings profit to Motown bank account.

renea simpson

So true

Robert Chatman

This song and the album ,,feeling good,, was going to be a big hit. Berry didn't, want David to top the temptations, so berry and Otis stopped it. This album is way better than anything the temps put out since the ,,I wish it would rain,, album, with David ruffin.

Interesting comment. I will look for the album. After he left the group he performed solo at the Harlem summer concerts. Check out the movie SUMMER OF SOUL and you will see him do a solo version of MY GIRL. He put his own spin on that song showcasing his vocal range!

This my cousin y'all!!!! Sing it cuzo! I saw d commercial and started feeling all warm and fuzzy. I had no idea he sung this song. I decided to look this up for my sick daughter to make her smile and came across this version.

This voice is everything. David Ruffin is my all time favorite. My grandson has a raspiness in his voice and I'm hoping he keeps it. To hear this song played in Olympics commercial has me in tears!!!

Valerie Teti

The Olympics commercial inspired me to download to my phone! I love this version!
