Words and music by Curtis Mayfield (The Impressions), 1964, (adaptation by the Chicago Movement, 1966)

Chicago-March


There's a rock and roll group called The Impressions and we call them 'movement fellows' and we try to sing a lot of their songs. Songs like Keep on Pushing, I Been Trying, I'm So Proud, It's Gonna be a Long Long Winter, People Get Ready, There's a Meeting Over Yonder really speak to the situation a lot of us find ourselves in. One song that has really become kind of a favorite with us especially when we got a lot of mean folks around is 'Never Too Much Love'"

Jimmy Collier

"Now one thing we try to do with this song is to get people to make up verses. You'd be surprised what kind of verses come from people who don't consider themselves songwriters or singers... Some people don't even consider themselves people."

from Sing for Freedom - The Story of the Civil Rights Movement through its songs. Edited and compiled by Guy and Candie Carawan.
Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love
Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love

I like to drink whisky, I like to drink wine
I'd like to have some now, but I just ain't got the time.
I gotta fight for my freedom and fight for it now
Join with the movement and we'll show you how.

Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love
Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love

I don't know but I think I'm right
Folks in heaven both black and white
I don't know but I've been told
Folks in heaven won't tell me where to go.

Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love
Too much love, too much love
Never in this world will there be too much love

Too much hate, too much hate
Always in this world there is too much hate
Too much war, too much war,
Always in this world there is too much war.

War is sad, war is long
Everybody knows that war is wrong
People tired, people sore
People just want to end the war.

People in Mississimppi thrown off their land
Even the government won't give a hand
But the Movement stays on and on
People are living on hope and a song.

If religion were a thing that money could buy
The rich would live and the poor would die
But I thank my god it is not so
Both the rich and poor together they go.

Some pople are good, some people are bad
Some people are happy, some people are sad
Some people are black, some people are white
But we're all together in the human plight.

They say the Movement is a non-violent thing
Led by people like Martin Luther King,
I want my freedom, and I want it now
Join with us and we will show you how.

Testo originale della canzone degli Impressions
da The Musicologist
NEVER TOO MUCH LOVE

too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love

never too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love

an old story told now passed from me to you
in simple little words to get my meaning through

young and old I feel will understand
take heed everybody to a wonderful plan
we all know how, get together right now
clap your hands, sing and shout

never too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love

never too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love

maybe you don’t know how to sing or express words the way you like to say
but everybody I know can clap their hands and make a new friend everyday

never too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love

never too much love, too much love,
never in this world will there be too much love
