What Stevie Wonder Can Do For You

When you dig out those old records

and have time to put them on

and are brave enough to put them on

He can make you remember

          (yester-me, yester-you, yesterday)

The thrills and the love

           (for once I have something I know won’t desert me)

The anticipation

          (there’s a place in the sun, where there’s hope for everyone)

and disappointment

         (what happened to the world we knew)

But, most of all, the longing

         (maybe someday, I’ll see your face among the crowd)

of youth.
