Beautiful People of H.P.

Updated on December 12, 2010

Friends

Giving Thanks

On the day before Thanksgiving I thought it would be fun to say thanks to some of my favorite writers for writing AND taking the time to visit my attempts at doing interesting hubs. As always a song popped into my head that conveys how I feel about all of you. It's a tune from the 60's and the talented artists' name is Melanie. The song is titled "Beautiful People" and I hope you enjoy it.                                              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're gather'd
I'll pass buttons out that say
Beautiful people
Never have to be alone
'Cause 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 ev'ry 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 ev'ryone you know
I'll pass out buttons for
The ones who come to show
Beautiful people
Never ever have to be alone
'Cause there'll always be someone
With the same button on as you
Include him in ev'rything you do
He may be sitting right next to you
He may be a beautiful people too
And if you take care of him
Maybe he'll take care of you
'Cause all of the beautiful people do
And you're all beautiful people too

I wish you all Peace and a Happy Thanksgiving!!

      Oh Tom I can't believe that you count me among your "beautiful people." Thank you sooooo much. You're too kind and I might add faithful to your friends. Thanks again. What a beautiful hub, poem.

      You're quite welcome James, while we don't always agree we seem to find some common ground and that's important. Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Peace!! Tom
