« Andy Fraser from Free wrote this but I changed the lyrics because the original was rather political though I loved the basic song. Gene Page, who orchestrated for Barry White, did a glorious string arrangement. Funnily enough, I get a lot of letters about this song from religious organisations who always tell me it's very positive. I suppose it is »   

Paroles :

Said the fight to make ends meet
Keeps a man upon his feet
Holding down his job
Trying to show he can’t be bought

Ooh, it takes every kind of people
To make what life’s about, yeah
Every kind of people
To make the world go ’round

Someone’s looking for a lead
In his duty to a King or creed
Protecting what he feels is right
Fights against wrong with his life

There’s no profit in deceit
Honest men know that
Revenge does not taste sweet
Whether yellow, black or white
Each and every man’s the same inside

It takes every kind of people
To make what life’s about, yeah
It takes every kind of people
To make the world go ’round

You know that love’s the only goal
That could bring a peace to any soul
Hey, and every man’s the same
He wants the sunshine in his name
