Lyrics: 

Everyone Counts

I say to myself , we're all here
And have to get by
Living together
Before we die
So make the journey easy
For others and you
Even if you're feeling crappy
Remember what's true

White, black, brown, red
Cuisines of culture
On the human thread
Everyone counts
Everyone counts
Trees, birds, flowers too
Animals, fish
All part of life's stew

I know there are some differences
In the way we think
But all are tenants
Gone in a blink
The only thing I can change
Is who I will be
In a world that's in transition
Not just about me

White, black, brown, red
Cuisines of culture
On the human thread
Everyone counts
Everyone counts
Trees, birds, flowers too
Animals, fish
All part of life's stew

Everyone counts including the earth
Big blue marble place of our birth
Everyone counts
Everyone counts
Everyone counts to me

"all part of life's stew" -- great metaphor.

Yeah, we are all part of this together and we all need to take care of one another! Nice lyric.

Such a timely and insightful reflection. Wonderful and important message that is beautifully crafted in this lyric.

The older I get the more I notice shifts in lyrical context over time; the evocative "big blue marble" in the last verse would have made no sense fifty years ago (the photo was taken in 1972). Let's hope that there are cultural shifts along the ways you suggest in the years to come, because it feels like they're going in the wrong direction at the moment.
