And When We Walk Out On The Stage
The Way We Feel Deep Inside
Is Something Magic When The Music Starts To Play

We Wanna Bring A Little Happiness And Love Into Your Lives
Forget About Your Problems And Your Troubles For A Little While

We’re Here To Entertain You
On Stage Right Now
We’re Here To Entertain You
Right Here, Right Now
We Like To Dance, We Like To Sing
And Do Our Thing
We Like To Dance, We Like To Sing
We Like To Do Our Thing

Let Your Heart Strike A Match
(Cause Love Lights The Flame)

Let It Shine So Bright

Let It Burn Forever And Ever
Let Love Bring Us Together
Let It Shine So Bright
The Eternal Light
Let Us Join Our Hands Together
Make A Chain That Bonds Forever

Stand In The Rain And You’ll Rust

Let’s Try To Show Compassion
It’s The Time For Us To Learn
There Will Be A Better Tomorrow
Our Reward Is Love In Return

(Chorus)
Let It Shine So Bright
The Eternal Light
Let It Burn Forever And Ever
Let Love Bring Us Together
Let It Shine So Bright

Ooh, I know a fortune teller
A very freaky fella
How ’bout you like me to tell ya
(Love is the thing you need)

Let me say now
A family physician
Gave me his quick prescription
For a nice disposition
(Love is the thing you need!)

But, when all your frustrations
Don’t receive no medication
How bad you feel
Oh, it’s just unreal

Oh, you can’t get no satisfaction
When your mind is overactin’
And you don’t give yourself the love you need

(So get on up)

And get down, down, down
With some good ol’ funky, funky love
(Love is the thing you need)

Fellas!

(Love is the thing you need)

Ah, yeah,

Make you feel so good
Make your body shake like crazy
Give yourself a get and go, yeah
(Love is the thing you need) The midnight hour

(Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need)

Sing it again

(Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need) When that somebody finds you down
(Love is the thing you need)
Love comes up from underground (Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need)

Oh, love (Oh, love)

Yeah, some people they don’t know
That it’s the only way to go
If you wanna live a happy, happy life yeah, yeah

Oh, there ain’t no doubt about it
We just can’t do without it
No we can’t, no we can’t
Sing it to me children

(Love is the thing you need)
One more time, yeah

(Love is the thing you need)
Yeah, yeah,

Once a day, twice a day, everyday
(Love is the thing you need)

What you say now
Once a day, twice a day, good God, everyday
(Love is the thing you need)

You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love

Y’all know what I’m talkin’ about (Love is the thing you need)

You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love

Love is the thing you need!

Don’t you stop, don’t you stop, don’t you stop
