Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)

Album: Diana Ross (1970)
Charted: 33 20
  • Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can
    Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can

    (Just try)
    Take a little time out of your busy day
    To give encouragement
    To someone who's lost the way
    (Just try)
    Or would I be talking to a stone
    If I asked you
    To share a problem that's not your own
    We can change things if we start giving
    Why don't you

    Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can
    Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can

    (Just try)
    If you see an old friend on the street
    And he's down
    Remember his shoes could fit your feet
    (Just try)
    Try a little kindness you'll see
    It's something that comes very naturally
    We can change things if we start giving

    Why don't you
    Reach out and touch
    Why don't you (Why don't you)
    Reach out and touch somebody's hand

    Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can
    Reach out and touch
    Somebody's hand
    Make this world a better place
    If you can
