Give a little bit

Give a little bit …  Give a little bit of your love to me

Give a little bit

I’ll give a little bit of my love to you

There’s so much that we need to share
So send a smile and show you care

I’ll give a little bit

I’ll give a little bit of my life for you
So give a little bit …  Give a little bit of your time to me

See the man with the lonely eyes
Take his hand, you’ll be surprised

Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me

I’ll give a little bit
I’ll give a little bit of my love for you

Now’s the time that we need to share
So find yourself, we’re on our way back home

Going home
Don’t you need to feel at home?
Oh yeah, we gotta sing

Give a little bit.

Take his hand, you'll be surprised; image

  1. MJ, when I saw the title of your post, that song came immediately to mind! So funny that you posted the lyrics! Love the pictures… I read once that we don’t realize how much a touch means to an elderly person.
    Love the paw!

    • I’m so glad you “get” my reference. We’ve been spending quite a bit of time with my elderly father-in-law, both in person, on the phone and via email, and that has left me thinking of others I know who don’t have anyone to “check” in on them. And that’s a favorite picture of Frankie giving a “high paw” to all :). Give a little bit indeed!

  2. How precious. How paw-fect, as well! Great post, MJ. You are able to communicate the most simple message in the most beautiful way. That’s what I love most about your blog!

  3. This song is now wonderfully stuck in my head for the day. 🙂 I love the hands and the paw “high 5”. That’s cool.

    • Frankie was getting his picture taken and gave me a high paw at the last minute… perfect for this post. I love that song, always have, always will.

      Cheers! MJ

  4. Yes, we need to be more giving and as the lyrics say, we need to be willing to see the need first. Excellent post.

    Ahhh. Supertramp. Great song from a great album. Love the paw photo.

    • Wonderful Sunday night music, isn’t it? He’s a master.

      Frankie thanks you .. he’s got quite the following these days 🙂 MJ

    A couple in their 80’s called me from Hobby. They were passing through, thought of my mother and tried to give her a call. I told them to keep trying. They called back and still no answer. I sent my brother over to check on her and no car in the driveway. She was out and about. Later we connected…she wondered what all the fuss was about…she was at a student teacher meeting…in her 80’s and still supervising student teachers! Sheeesh!

    • I love it! And I love that they thought to check in on her and worried enough to call you. I wonder if the next generation will think to do such things? I sure hope so.

      Go Mom!

  7. Good thoughts and an excellent emjayandthem photo too 🙂

  8. Seems perfect with the animals. All of mine are just circling through my head. Thanks for the visual!

  9. I love this song and have the Supertramp version. Great pictures too.

  10. Cute photo of Frankie! Sweet post! ~ Sheila

  11. I could name that song in 3 notes…there is so much power in a gentle touch. I have heard that people take public transportation just so they can have human interaction. There is something to be said about a genuine smile and a warm handshake. They say welcome, I am glad you are here!

    • Me, too. Great song, great album! I have heard the same … like the little old guy in the grocery store who stops me with a twinkle in his eye, and a pat on my wrist, so he can tell me his joke. You know his wife has heard the same joke a million times and is sick to death of it and he just wants someone new to tell it to 🙂

  12. Great message, MJ. Love that your dog wanted to participate!

  13. Ah, thanks for the reminder of a great song!

  14. So sweet — great song, pictures, thoughts. You’ve made me smile tonight!
