All We Got Is All We Need
By Martin William Anderson

We’re all we got, we’re all we need.
A mantra we should adhere to, if we believe.
With unity true success is guaranteed.
See, I need you and you need me.
We’re all we got but we’re all we need.
It’s you and I against the world indeed.
To work together we must concede.
I’ll try once again to plant this seed.
Some will contend they live by a better creed.
But I’m all you’ve got and you’re all I need.
