Don’t play on the Holiday, work to find a better way. Everybody love somebody now. Everybody sing for Martin Luther King. Let freedom ring for Martin Luther King! Holiday! Holiday! King Holiday!

Who do we thank for teaching us That we all have the strensth to love? we thank the Prince of Non-Violence for showing um the way. How do we show the children of today How do live together at one? We’ll sing of a King And his words will light all of our tomorrows. Listen children of today, Don’t think love has gone away. It’s in your hearts and minds How long? Not long? New day will shine, if we just take the chance. His love will glow. Open up the windows! Let the hero shine Every day in your life, Yours and mine. Everybody shine. For the future generation, Dr. King’s medication, For successful operation, is PEACE FOR EVERY NATION! Sing! Celebrate! Sing! Sing! Celebrate! For a King Celebrate! Sing! Sing! Celebrate!
