Ever graceful and amazing,

Joan started off the show.

‘We are the world’, she sang out,

as our tears began to flow.

 

‘Shake me, wake me’, sang The Tops,

followed by ‘That same old song’,

and the audience responded, as

‘Sugar pie, honey-bunch’ came along.

 

Billy Ocean’s ‘Caribbean Queen’,

was sure to hit the right note.

This ever popular ‘Lover boy’,

sure got a cheering vote.

 

Black Sabbath came on next,

with ‘Children of the grave’,

and on hearing ‘Paranoid’;

rapturous applause, the crowd gave.

 

‘Love somebody’ sang out Rick;

his fans too, played their part,

when the intro began

for another hit;  ‘State of the heart’.

 

REO, with ‘Can’t fight the feeling’,

then took up their slot.

Fans rolled with the changes;

this speed-wagon’s wheel’s – red hot.

 

Then Crosby, Stills & Nash

took ‘Southern Cross’ off the floor.

And their ‘Teach the children well’,

naturally saw emotions soar.

 

‘You’ve got another thing comin’,

set Judas Priest’s spot off right.

‘The Green Manalishi’ followed,

but no wild world tonight!

 

Bryan Adams’ ‘Summer of 69’,

as expected, went down a storm.

He finished with ‘Cut’s like a knife;

and as ever, was on form.

 

‘California Girls’ and ‘Good Vibrations’

got the Beach Boy’s on their way.

‘Wouldn’t it be nice’, they sang next,

before ending with ‘Surfin USA’.

 

Never ‘Out of touch’, Hall and Oates,

sounded ever sweeter;

before ending their slot,

with another hit; ‘Maneater’.

 

‘Don’t you forget about me?

threatened ‘Simple Minds’.

With Jim firmly at the helm,

the promised miracle, one finds.

 

The Pretenders ‘Message of Love’,

saw Crissie at her best.

‘Stop your sobbing’, she begged,

before putting ‘chain gang’ to the test.

 

Patti Labelle’s ‘Over a rainbow’,

brought reverence to the stage,

and her ‘Imagine’ and ‘Forever Young’,

certainly hit the right page.

 

Santana’s ‘Open Invitation’,

extended to the flock;

saw them as one, in brotherhood,

just like back in old Woodstock.

 

Ashford and Simpson joined with Teddy

to ‘reach out and touch somebody’s hand’.

As fans responded immediately,

by the thousand, to their command.

 

Each artist performed for love,

and by determination, was led.

Their message loud and clear;

That all children of the world – be fed.
