Give a Little Love

Sebastian covers Ziggy Marley's reggae song "Give a Little Love", which actually has very little to do with the character of Sebastian that we know. I think it's because Sebastian has become such a lovable character, most people forget that when he started out in the film, he was a pretty big stick-in-the-mud. This song is very hopeful and optimistic. It was originally featured in the Sebastian: Party Gras! album, and was later included in the soundtrack for The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea.

We've got to give a little love
Have a little hope
Make this world a little better


See man, if you give love, you get love back. It goes like that. In other words, what goes around comes around. Listen to this now.

See, we live in this great big world, so caught up in the confusion
All of this can make some sense for me and you
Now, maybe we can find a way, there's got to be a solution
How to make a brighter day, what can we do?

We've got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let's do what we can do together

Oh, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la, only if we try

You see what I'm saying? Now come on, sing with me, give it a try. You ready?

Now we have no worries on our minds, got no troubles on our shoulders
Sometimes it seems so much, the things we go through
Now maybe if we take the time, time to understand each other
We can learn to make it right, what do we do?

We've got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let's do what we can do together

Oh, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la, only if we try
Oh, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la, only if we try

(If everybody got somebody by the hand
Maybe everyone could learn to love and understand)

Oh, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la, only if we try

Sing it!

Oh, oh-oh-oh-ah
Oh, la la la, only if we try

We've got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let's do what we can do together

Oh, come on now, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la, only we try

(We've got to) give a little love, have a little hope
Make this world a little better
Try a little more, harder than before
Let's do what we can do together

Oh, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, la la la only we try

We've got to give a little love, have a little hope
Make this a little better
We can do it together, together

Come on!
Oh, la la la, we can really make it better, yeah
Oh, only if we try

(Yeah, man!)

Give a little love, have a little hope
Make this a little better
We can do it together, togetherů



Give a Little Love

The Pop Dreamers also cover the Ziggy Marley song (which had previously been covered by Sebastian), and maybe that's because it's a deliberate tribute to Sebastian's "sound" even though he isn't in the album.
