"Everywhere around the world a heartbeat sounds the same." This simple thought has given birth to one of Red's most popular songs. This stirring anthem to humanity's unity in diversity has been sung by children(and adults) all over the world.

Themes: Oneness, diversity

Listen...can you hear the sound
Of hearts beating all the world around
Down in the valley, out on the plain
Everywhere around the world a heartbeat sounds the same
Black or white, red or tan
It's the heart of the family of man
Whoa beating away
Whoa beating away
Whoa it's beating away

Listen...can you hear the sound
Of laughter all the world around
High in the mountains, down by the sea
Everywhere around the world laughter sounds the same to me
Black or white, red or tan
It's the heart of the family of man
Whoa laughing away
Whoa laughing away
Whoa laughing away
Oo la la la la la, oo la la la la la
Oo la la la la la, oo la la la la la oh
Oo la la la la la, oo la la la la la
Oo la la la la la, oo la la la la la oh

Listen...can you hear the sound
Of singing all the world around
Walking through the jungle or on a busy city street
Everywhere around the world singing always sounds so sweet
Black or white, red or tan
It's the heart of the family of man
Whoa singing away
Whoa singing away
Whoa singing away
