People Are For Lovin'--By Sara Kendrick--United States

People Are For Lovin'

Birds sing unpremeditated art
On this warm gray winter's day
People are for lovin' things are for use
Sing birds sing broadcast it don't dismay

Birds sing morn's verse, do you hear their song
Tell this new generation
Things are for use, people are for lovin'
Not to be used but for admiration

Birds sing unsung lovely melody
Unrehearsed tune in time sing
People are for lovin', things are for use
Listen hear the sound as they upswing

Birds sing back and forth to each other
When will humans ever learn
Things are for use, people are for lovin'
Maybe today is the day of turn
