The Lyrics

When you say Leona Helmsly
People tend to wince
So fabulosly wealthy
And calculating chince

She cheated on her taxes
While her renters lived in slums
So are we any different?
By giving just our crumbs

Your church's trip to Starbucks
Could feed a thousand bums

(Sveedish Folk Dance Style)

Four!

Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Give Love Away!

Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Give Love Away!

And give homage to Leona, ey?

Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Give Love Away!

No one will think you're a Commie
Sharing your family's things
And you can thank a Swami
For blessings Karma brings

Lets all be kind and helpful
And heed the Golden Rule
May we be caring humans
And not the devil's tool

We'll reap the most by giving
More treasure if we pool

(Russian Folk Dance Style)

Da da da da da da
Give Love Away

Da da da da da da
Give Love Away

And don't 'vurrie' 'bout Chernobyl, ey?

Da da da da da da
Give Love Away

(Channeling Charo)

Charo, I'd love to hear you strumming softly
I loved to hear your nails strumming briskly
I want to hear you now, please, please

Please, please, lets hear some a-strumming
Yeah, lets hear some a-strumming
Yeah, lets hear some a-strumming
Yeah, lets hear some a-strumming
I love all your strumming
Lets hear some a-strumming
Love to hear all your strumming
I love all your strumming

I love all your strumming
Lets hear some a-strumming
Hey, I love all your strumming

(Invoking Charo's Legendary Flamenco)

Cha cha cha cha cha cha
Give Love Away!

Cha cha cha cha cha cha
Give Love Away!

Lets get cheery hearing Charo, play!

Cha cha cha cha cha cha
Give Love Away!

Cha cha cha cha cha cha
Give Love Away!

(Oh, yes yes, yes, yes, yes)

Cha cha cha cha cha cha
Give Love Away!
