Yearnin' Learnin'

This song is by Earth, Wind & Fire and appears on the album That's the Way of the World (1975).

Once upon a time, a child was born
With a light, to carry on,
Didn't know what he had to be, had a feelin'
He was bound to see

So the streets, he fled to shine
In a world of a different kind
As he yearn, so he learn

Stop! Look what's behind you
Fame and love gonna find you
We're just here to remind you
Yearn and learn is what you do

He just felt so, good inside
Watchin' people come alive
Throbbin' rhythm and it stirs your soul
Melodies of joy unfold

Gives your heart such a special treat
Clap your hands, stomp your feet
As we yearn, so we learn
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Stop! Look what's behind you
Fame and love gonna find you
We're just here to remind you
Yearn and learn is what you do

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Stop! Look what's behind you
Fame and love gonna find you
We're just here to remind you
Yearn and learn is what you do.
