We can't turn back the clock But we can chant for love Let's cut the idle talk so we can Chant for love We always have the time to quarrel About such problems as money and war Let's put it off until tomorrow Who needs another dose of sorrow? It don't necessitate an act of faith To chant for love What alibi is strong enough to wait To chant for love Though we don't hold the reigns of power Somebody else seems to be in control We mustn't waste another hour We'll get directly to the soul If we can Chant For a world united Chant For a world that's dying for love The Hare Krishna plays a drum and bell When he chants for love The tribal priest is afraid of hell So he chants for love I am not pushing some religion Don't get me wrong, I never mess with such things Just be true to your own vision This is your personal decision The Dervish spins to a "Hu Hu Hu" When he chants for love Nobody knows what the angels do When they chant for love You're at the bottom of the ladder Someone may try to tell you where you should start But the words, they never matter If you can feel it in your heart Then you can Why don't you chant? You can chant Chant, chant, chant ...
