Basic Human Needs
Lyrics by Wavy Gravy, Music by Bob Slaughter

Wouldn't it be neat  if the people you meet 
Had shoes on their feet and something to eat 
And wouldn't it be fine if all human kind had shelter 

   Basic human needs 
   Basic human deeds 
   Doing what comes naturally 
   Down in the garden 
   Where no one is apart 
   Deep down in the garden 
   The garden of your heart 

And wouldn't it be grand if we all lend a hand 
So each one could stand on a free piece of land? 
And wouldn't it be thrilling if folks stopped their killing 
And started in tilling the land 

And wouldn't it be daring if folks started sharing 
Instead of comparing what each other is wearing 
And wouldn't it be swell if people didn't sell 
Their mother Earth
