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 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!!!

Me too! I had never heard this version. It's after 2 AM but I had to play it before going to bed.

Gromyko Weir

I just heard it in the Olympic commercial

Andre Porch

I, too, heard it on the Olympics commercial and knew who was singing. His raspy tone is very recognizable. I hope his family/estate is happy with this. Very nice choice for the promotion of the Olympic games.....

I’m happy these commercials are turning people on to this great song but I can’t help but feel for these musicians like David Ruffin & Aretha who are having some of their best songs blasted on repeat on national television cheapening the music.

Corey Sheppard

Just heard this in a new commercial. How cool!!
