All Winners
lyrics by My Rap Name is Alex

music by B. Lohr, B. Sachs, J. Willoughby, D. Harter, E. Bailey, R. Maiola, K. Cissoko & G. Sherman

Who told you people with pimples ain't appealin? (yeah?)
or skinny blonde girls don't have feelins? (yeah?)
who told you you were too big to be sexy?
or that your quiet voice is not worth respecting?
Who says a magazine cover's what you're spozed to be? (Nah!)
just as you are you look beautiful to me.
You're not too short, too fat, too black or too tall
I see nothing wrong with you at all
As soon as we get your wings unfurled
Your gifts are going to change the whole world

  I wanted to know love I had to do this first
  see the truth of the beauty of the women of the Earth
  the children of the Earth, the men of the Earth
  the beauty of myself, you know, my self worth
  the truth and the beauty of the people in between
  in the whole web of life if you know what I mean
  Heather K, gotta say "gratitude to the end"
  For what you added to my life, helped me find all my friends
  and the interconnections upon which life depends
  maybe some day we find a way make amends

And we're all winners here
fighting to be free from fear
we're all winners here
to me that's just crystal clear

Who says there's insufficient love for us to overcome our fears? (yeah?)
we ain't tryin' to hear that. They been sayin' that for years
And why they work so hard on tryin' to divide us?
Could it be that they're afraid of what's inside us?
Birds gotta sing, wolves gotta eat
we gotta rock to the beat, try to get you out your seat
You ain't weak or asleep or a creep or alone
So when I say REVOLUTION, c'mon let's get it on
As soon as we get our wings unfurled
Our gifts are going to change the whole world

  What if we turned off the tv
  and I touched you, and you touched me
  and what if we just giggled for fun
  and run out into the sun where we all just fall into one
  communicate and relate demonstrate without anger
  flirtin' with danger, talkin' to a stranger
  we could play a game. Everyone could win it
  we could eat a meal with no animals in it
  go out and get our grove on and dance until the dawn an'
  remember it all in the mornin' (in the mornin)
  in the mornin (mornin)
  on and on and on and on and on and

We're all winners here
fighting to be free from fear
we're all winners here
to me that's just crystal clear

Who's the one that said that it was wrong to hug the trees (yeah?)
Or that we shouldn't just dangle in the breeze
And who says that a woman that likes sex is bad
That kind of thing just makes me mad
Who says a man is not a man if he's not strong
And who says there's such a thing as do not belong
You ain't wrong, so come on, come along, sing a song
Time to recognize you been strong all along
As soon as we get our wings unfurled
Our gifts are going to change the whole world

  There's no self-made men, we're all made by our moms
  gratitude to every mom and we all shine on
  like the moon and the stars and the sun and the one
  everything, freedom rings once we all can have fun
  We stand together... we overcome
  one human family no matter where you're from
  and now the world don't move to the beat of one drum
  but gratitude because there's enough drums for everyone

  there's enough of everything when we live within our means
  give your love and your touch and your rice and your beans
  and your smile is free, give it away, give it away
  it might bounce around the world and save your life some day

We're all winners here
fighting to be free from fear
we're all winners here
to me that's just crystal clear
