Let’s Work Together
Wilbert Harrison Lyrics


Together we will stand
Divided we'll fall
Come on now people
And let's get on the ball

And work together
Come on come on let's work together
Now now people
Say now together we will stand
Every boy girl woman and man

Before when things go wrong
As they sometimes will
When the road you travel
Well seems all uphill

Let's work together
Come on come on let's work together
Now now people
Say now together we will stand
Every boy girl woman and man

Make someone happy
Make someone smile
Let's all work together
And make life worthwhile

Let's work together
Come on come on let's work together
Now now people
Say now together we will stand
Every boy girl woman and man

Two or three minutes
Two or three hours
What do they mean
Now now in this life of ours

Let's work together
Come on come on let's work together
Now now people
Say now together we will stand
Every boy girl woman and man

"Sock it to me baby"--Wilbert Harrrison.


Well now the marriage vow is very sacred
The man put us together now you want to make it
Stick together, come on, come on let's stick together
You know we made a vow not to leave one another never

"Let's Work Together"
Together we will stand divided we'll fall
Come on now people let's get on the ball
And work together, come on, come on let's work together, now, now people
Say now together we will stand, every boy, girl, woman, and man

Instead of arguing 'this is better than that' and dissing other versions, try showing a bit of musical maturity and appreciate that other musicians have interpreted the song their way. Yes this is the original recorded on primitive equipment ... and that's how it sounds ... raw, earthy and beautiful. Just be thankful someone took the time to upload it...thanks Hankgwe

Charlie Newman

Amen, Joe.
I've never understood why so many people have to knock one thing to compliment another.
Seems like total bullshit to me.

No. This is not the original. Wilbert originally wrote and recorded "Let's Stick Together", about trying to save a relationship. Canned Heat rewrote the lyrics but gave Wilbert credit for the music. This is him covering the Canned Heat version. Your point about arguing in the comments section is good, but it is not the original version of the song.

WELL said...This sounds like it was recorded at a Black back yard barbeque in 1950s...Old brothers with REAL soul...ALL other versions sound like cheap $ driven imitations compared to purity of this original...

Clark Ditter

Joe,
What you are saying makes sense, but I have a query.

According to Wikipedia this is not his original version, but is a 1969 re-working of the original song "Let's Stick Together" which is also available on YouTube (the other one has a yellow label).

According to Wikipedia, the other one, "Let's stick together" is the 1962 original, but it doesn't sound older to my ears. Bryan Ferry covered this version, whereas Status Quo covered "work together", which seems more guitar-ish.

Can you shed any light?

@Thomas Beattie yes he was a singer. He sang the classic "Kansas City". (I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come...)
