Lyrics

Say it, say the word love

In the beginning I misunderstood
But now I've got it, the word is good
Everywhere I go I can hear it said
In all the good book and the bad books that I have read
Go on say it, go on say it, say it, say it, say it y’all
go on say it, go on say it, say it, say it

Spread the word and you'll be free
Spread the word and be like me
Spread the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?

It's so fine, like sunshine
It's a word, it’s a word they call love
it’s a word, it’s a word they call love

Now that I know what I’m feelin’ is right
I mean to show everybody the light
Give the word a chance to say
That the word is the only way

say it, say it, say it, say it, say

Say the word and you'll be free
Say the word and be like me
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?

It's so fine, like sunshine
It's a word, it’s the word they call love
It's a word, it’s a word they call love

It's so fine, just like sunshine
It's a word, it’s the word they call love
It's a word, it’s a word they call love

It’s a word
it’s a word
it’s a word

Say it

Say the word love x6

Say it
