We Are the World Lyrics

"We're The World (USA For Africa)"

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending...

    If doesn't matter where your from,the color of your skin, or any of the other things that stand in ppls way. We are all humans and there should never be a thought to helping others. Do what you can, you NEVER know if it could or will be you! Just saying.....

    Its a good song which inspires others to do something for those who need in help... It says that we can't be one who pretends everything is k and there will be someone to help the poor an Im not the right one to do those charity or I can't do this alone... we should have to be together then we can make a huge success in helping people around without considering their status

    I think the song is a great song, which has the power to command unity in diversity: without considering the colour of our skin or human race, abolishing slave trade, racial discrimination, religion and ethnicity bigotry, hunger and starvation, Political injustice and corrupt practices in every nations of the world. I Stand For Unity✊

    It's a very useless song with hiden satanic meaning coz God did not command us to turn stone to bread but Jesus told us man shall not live on bread alone. Am from Africa and we don't need such donations we only need Jesus

    We need to help other people from Africa and other countries. We need to raise good money for healthy foods to prevent all other people from dying of starvation. We wanted to give a better life to all people from other countries. We can’t ignore to help other people. When you love your family, you help your family. We are part of the world. Helping others makes the day brigihter. Saving our family from other parts of the world. We’ll make a better day together. We give the foods and shelters to other people from other parts of the world. So, that the people will stay healthy from hunger and thirst. We can make bread for hungry people so, we can help them.
