Lyrics:

Don’t take the lovers from the world,
There must be lovers in the world,
‘Cause there is no one else that can save us.
With all the wise men in the world,
With all the great men in the world,
Look at the mixed up mess that they gave us.

It’s time the lovers had their chance,
Let’s put this planet in their hands,
And let there be music for all of the people.
Ring out the news from the top of the steeple.

Let there be love,
Let there be love.

Don’t take the lovers from the world,
We need the lovers of the world,
And if we want a change,
In a world gone insane
Can you blame us?

Only lovers can save us,
Only lovers can save us,
Only lovers can save us.

  1. Thank you Pieter. This is great. Yes Dame Shirley’s tone and song delivery did change through the years to keep pace with the time, but kept her unique style and taste. I love how she sings this wonderful song.
