Dead Air Church: Beautiful People

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
(Melanie Safka)


Beautiful people
You live in the same world as I do
But somehow I never noticed you
before today
I'm ashamed to say

Beautiful people
We share the same back door
And it isn't right
We never met before
But then we may never meet again

If I weren't afraid you'd laugh at me
I would run and take all your hands
And I'd gather everyone together for a day
And when we gathered
I'll pass buttons out that say

Beautiful people
Then you'd never have to be alone
Because there'll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in everything you do.

Beautiful people
You ride the same subway
As I do every morning
That's got to tell you something
We've got so much in common
I go the same direction that you do
So if you take care of me
Maybe I'll take care of you

Beautiful people
You look like friends of mine
And it's about time
That someone said it here and now
I make a vow that some time, somehow
I'll have a meeting
Invite everyone you know
I'll pass out buttons to
The ones who come to show

Beautiful people
Never have to be alone
Because there'll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in everything you do
He may be sitting right next to you
He may be beautiful people too
And if you take care of him
Maybe he'll take care of you
And if you take care of him
Maybe I'll take care of you
Because I'm a beautiful people, too.

I always really liked Melanie. I think that &^%$%#! "rollerskate" song really ruined things for her, though.
