(Yeah, yeah)
I wish there was a video game
To teach you your ancestor names
I wish there was a phone number
Like 1-800-Save-Your-Brother
I'm thankful for the radio station
Not afraid to put the truth in rotation
There is certain information
That you can only get in conversation with...

[Chorus:]
Young people would talk to
Old people, it would make us a
Better people all around
(Yes, it would)
And if old people would talk to
Young people, it would make us
Better people all around
(Yes, it would)

(Yeah, yeah)
We went from radio to TV
Now we're going from LP to CD
Don't be afraid to try something new (yeah)
I can help you with the brand new technology
If you can help me with the age old philosophy
Together there's so much we can do when...

[Chorus]

(Yeah, yeah)
They say that every generation gets worse
They call it a generational curse
But these problems don't just drop out the sky (yeah)
But listen to Mahatma Ghandi's words
And be the change you want to see in the world
Start with yourself, and healing will multiply
Ah, that's what happens when...

[Chorus]

If black people would talk to white people
It would make us a better people all around
If Republican people would talk to Democratic people
It would make us diplomatic people all around
