You Give A Little Love

Kasabian performing You Give A Little Love at Mulberry's Fire Pit Party on 13 April 2012

You Give A Little Love is a song written by Paul Williams for the 1976 film Bugsy Malone.

BackgroundEdit

Kasabian first covered You Give A Little Love at Mulberry's Fire Pit Party at Coachella 2012[1] and once again at an acoustic gig for XFM on 13 August 2012. In an interview on the German TV show on tape in November 2011 Tom named You Give A Little Love as a song he would have liked to have written.[2] Asked about the decision to cover it they said they were big fans of the film and Mulberry's Coachella party seemed like the perfect opportunity.[3] The song appeared on the band's setlist as "We Could Have Been" and was posted by Mulberry on YouTube as "We Could Have Been Anything" instead of its actual title.

LyricsEdit

We could've been anything that we wanted to be
And it's not too late to change
I'd be delighted to give it some thought
Maybe you'll agree that we really ought
Two, three, four

We could've been anything that we wanted to be
Yes that decision was ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double up our powers

We could've been anything that we wanted to be
And I'm not saying we should
But if we try it, we'd learn to abide it
We could be the best at being good guys

Flowers of the earth
Who can even guess how much a real friend is worth
Good guys
Shake an open hand
Maybe we'll be trusted if we try to understand
No doubt about it
It must be worthwhile
Good friends do tend to make you smile

We could've been anything that we wanted to be
Yes that decision is ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double up our powers

You give a little love
And it all comes back to you
You know you're gonna be remembered
For the things that you say and do

You give a little love
And it all comes back to you
You know you're gonna be remembered
For the things that you say and do

We could've been anything that we wanted to be
Yes that decision is ours
It's been decided we're weaker divided
Let friendship double up our powers

You give a little love
And it all comes back to you
You know you're gonna be remembered
For the things that you say and do
