We're All in This Together

If trillions of diverse cells can work together to produce the marvel of a human body, why can't billions of people do the same with the "body" of humanity?  That's the question this fabulous, rip-roaring tune from Red's Parents' Choice "Gold" Award-winning CD, "Hello World", asks.

Themes: Cooperation, oneness

We're All in This Together

What a miracle of nature our body is
So many gifts in one place working all together
Nerves and knuckles, liver, lungs, and kidneys
Everything we need in one place working all together
So when I see the different members of the human race
I think what a waste we're not working more together
Just like nerves and knuckles, liver, lungs, and kidneys...
It all makes sense to me, anatomically

Some folks are fingers, some folks are toes
Nigel's a kneecap, Nellie's a nose
We're all in this together
Brian's a blood cell, Jennie's a gene
Someone's a whisker, someone's a spleen
We're all in this together

Inside your body, see what's going on
There's a million pieces getting along
Separately they're a pile of parts but all hooked up the magic starts
It's a miracle of harmony...so how about you and how about me
We're all in this together

Someone's a cheekbone, someone's a chin
Angel's an elbow, Sarah's a shin
We're all in this together
Ellie's an eyeball, Tessa's a tear
Someone's an ankle, someone's an ear
We're all in this together

Charlene, Cameron, Nikolai, Peg, Hettie, Mina, Vitaly, and Craig
Curt, Elizabeth, Maggie, and Chip, Octavio, Darius, Jasmine, and Skip
There's a couple of billion you's and me's with ears to hear and eyes to see
We're all in this together

If you won't listen to me listen to your heart
Something's getting ready to start
Take a look around, it's just about time to power
us up and bring it on line
It's a miracle of harmony... the body of humanity
We're all in this together
