Take This Song

"Take This Song", originally by Jamaican ragge band Third World, is given a Sebastian-style cover in the Sebastian from The Little Mermaid album. It's a laidback number, very relaxed and quietly charming.

(printable version)

Down in Jamaica, one Friday afternoon
A little bird brought us a song with melody
He says, "Take this song, give it to the whole wide world
From now on, you're on your own
Remember that you're not alone

Oh yeah

Can't you see that the whole world is changing?
Can't you see there's a new day dawning?

I've come so far, so far from across the sea
I've traveled by day, traveled by night
With a message to set you free

Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony
Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony

Can't you see that the whole world is changing?
Can't you see there's a new day dawning?

People sing the same song around the world
A song of love to touch the hearts
The hearts of everyone

Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony
Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony"

He brought the message then he went away
He gave us hope for a brighter day
Gave us the strength to make it through the storm

When seas were rough, times are tough
It's up to us to carry on

Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony
Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony

Take this song and melody (All you gotta do is sing my song)
Make this world a symphony (That's right, sing this song, man)
Take this song and melody (Come on now, sing this song)
Make this world a symphony

Take this song and melody
Make this world a symphony...
