Love Was All We Needed


Upon this date in nineteen hundred and sixty-seven
Four fellas performed a pop song they'd just written
During a live international telecast from London ...
Providing a certain camaraderie we all felt then ...

When the world was torn by war in Asia and the mid-east
We all watched the Beatles perform their wonderful treat
Telling us way back then - All You Need is Love ...
Something every one of us felt ... like a warm glove

- Tristram
