Learn a little giving and loving

I dumpster-dived and dug out Learnalilgivinanlovin from Skipping waste, a documentary chosen for a Free School meeting.

The beginning, motown-ish, the rhythm, a few notes of Phil Collins, the insturmental a lite drop of Baileys Irish Cream and the lyrics, an epiphany for certain folks, that, my friend, is how brillant the song is.

The main course serves a heavy dose of carefree street-wise philosophy, a remedy that should stand the test of “high-maintenance” living, temper flying, conflict playing and crashes deafening illusions of governments and corporations created and spoon-fed fear.

If you’re always trying to get to the top
You don’t get to the bottom of nothing
Then you’re gone before you know it
You’d better stop (stop)
Learn a little giving and loving

It’s been done before
C’mon, do it again
‘coz if it’s good
Then you should share it round
What’s the use of keeping
All the good things that you’ve found to yourself?

Learn a little, learn a little, learn a little giving
Learn a little, learn a little, learn a little giving and loving

You don’t gotta keep no other man down
For you to get up
There’s no need to worry
Just don’t give away your self-respect

‘coz if it’s all you’ve got left
The rest don’t really matter now anyway honey

But give away love (give it)
And give it for free
No strings attached
Just don’t ask for it back

Learn a little, learn a little, learn a little giving
Learn a little, learn a little, learn a little giving and stop

Giving
Learn a little giving give it
It’s been done before
C’mon do it again
Learn a little, learn a little, learn a little giving and loving

Flying across the aqua over to Asia, a random résumé of sageness, in this case Dao De Jing (道德經), mélange suffisamment bien avec self-respect, giving et loving, n’est-ce pas?

持而盈之﹐不如其已﹔揣而銳之﹐不可長保。
金玉滿堂﹐莫之能守﹔富貴而驕﹐自遺其咎。
功成身退﹐天之道也。

Learnalilgivinanlovin sealed a funky crescendo in skipping waste, which you SHOULD watch!
