DT Lyrics:




Subject: Name of song? (Think a little more etc.)
From: Banjer
Date: 26 Feb 01 - 08:22 PM

Mind block strikes again...or maybe it's a senior moment...I have been trying to pin down the actual title to the song that contains the lyrics...'Let me be a little meeker to my fellow who is weaker, think a little more of others and a little less of me' etc. While you're on a roll, do you know the author as well?? Have checked the Trad with different lyrics but nothing has come up. Thanks

I think it's Let Me Be a Little Kinder...? Dunno the author, I've only heard it as a duet by (are you ready?) Glenn Campbell and whatsername who did Ode to Billy Joe...

And they did a good job, too.

MMario,

Yes, that's it! I only had it on a homemade tape give to me, and it was labeled the other name. But I remember now the giver told me he'd written the title incorrectly on several, and that was one he mentioned. What is whatername's name, anyhow?

Well, one more nice thing about the Mudcat: when one of us wakes from a dead sleep with her name, we can still post!

Thanks guys, I knew someone would be able to pin it down. I've had the melody and a few of the words bouncing around the vast wasteland that I call 'brain' for a couple of days now.

Is it indeed "Less of Me"? My first thought was "Try a Little Kindness" but then I thought, no that's Otis, but, no, that's "Try a Little Tenderness" (arrangement filched by Three Dog Night). Hmm. It was Bobbie Gentry, though, from an album that also featured an Everly Bros. tune, "Let It Be Me", I think.

Very nice lyrics. Not a bad personal prayer for the start of each day or whenever for that matter.
