Touch A Hand, Make A Friend    (1973)

Can't you feel it in your bones, now?
A change is coming on
From every walk of life
People are seeing the light
Can't you feel it in your hearts, now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

I've read about you, my friend
Ain't it time you come on in?
Live the united way
Why don't you join us today?
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

It's been reflected in the attitude
Of others just like you
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Every day we'll go waking up
To the needs of one another
We're on our way
Making the world a better place

Can't you feel it in your hearts, now?
A new thing is taking shape
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can

Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
Reach out and touch a hand
Make a friend if you can
