Love
Martha and the Vandellas 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 in your heart

And the world (the world) will be a better place
And the world (the world) will be a better place
For you (for you) and me (and me)
You just wait (just wait) and see
Another day goes by, still all the children cry
Put a little love in your heart
Oh, if you want the world to know, we won't let hatred grow
Just put a little love in your heart

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

Take a good look around and if you're lookin' down
Just put a little love in your heart (come put it in your heart)
I hope when you decide kindness will be your guide
Put a little love in your heart
And the world (the world) will be a better place
Yes, the world (the world) will be a better place
For you (for you) and me (and me)
Why don't you just wait (just wait) just wait and see, come on now
(Put a little love in your heart)
It won't hurt, no no
(Put a little love in your heart)
Ain't no harm now
(Put a little love in your heart)
Say something nice to your neighbor this morning
(Put a little love in your heart)
Tell your children you love them this morning, come one
(Put a little love in your heart)
Put a little love in your heart, oh yeah

There is so much truth in this song , that many , choose to not show , as they do not want to be "vulnerable" .Β  The honesty in this song is so very touching ... and Martha hits the emotion perfectly .

Lisa Foy

This is a true gem. One of their best. I think about all my family we used to visit with in DC. We all would sit around the record player and play the 45 to death. Makes me do these things.

Bill Herald

This was a huge hit in San Diego, and it actually topped the charts on San Diego's top-rated station (KCBQ) on Jan. 9, 1966. The song only made it to No. 70 on Billboard as the flip side of the No. 26 hit ("You've Been In Love Too Long") for the Detroit girl group headed by Martha Reeves.

Ronnie Damnitz

The 2 songs split sales and airplay hence the #70 position you've been in love to long #36

Bill Herald shut up! Only 70? Highway robbery, that’s for sure. It was a hit in LA too.
