Crystal Blue Persuasion (version by Danyel Alana. Original lyrics by Tommy James & The Shondells)

Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a'rising
Most definitely

A new day is coming, (ooh, ooh)
People are changing
Ain't it beautiful, (ooh, ooh)
Crystal blue persuasion

Better get ready gonna see the light
Cause, love is the answer, (ooh, ooh)
And baby that's all right

So don't you give up now, (ooh, ooh)
Its so easy to find
Just look to your soul (look to your soul)
Baby open your mind

Crystal blue persuasion, ahhh ahhhhhh
It's a new vibration
Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal, .......blue persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
When he looks down
On every green field, (ooh, ooh)
yeah babe in every town
All of his children
And every nation
They'll be ....peace and good
and brotherhood

and Crystal blue persuasion, yeah

Crystal blue persuasion, aha
Crystal blue persuasion, aha
Crystal blue persuasion, aha
