Paroles "Piece of Clay" - Marvin Gaye

Father stop
Criticizing (criticizing) your son
Mother please
Leave your daughters alone
Don't you see that's what wrong
With the world (with the world) today (oh)
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay (oh)
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

We all talk about kindness
But it's only only a word (truly)
Brother turned on a sister
In this cruel, cruel world
That's what's wrong
With all in this world today
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
Oh!
Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

Aah aah (woo)
Somebody to play with
Wanna to mold you, wanna mold you
Shape it like they wanna
Wanna to do their thing

Children are told
To give not just to take
If we were all children
You know the world will be a better place
Oh, everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay

We should all love each other (each other)
Love not hate one another (one another)
We should all love each other (each other)
Love not hate, oh

Everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
Yeah, everybody wants somebody
To be their own piece of clay
True, everybody wants somebody
To mold them (to be their own piece of clay), shape them own way
(Oh) aye, everybody wants somebody
Try to make it (to be their own piece of clay)
Or do their, do their thing (want to)
Everybody wants to take somebody (somebody)
Got to make 'em, make 'em like their self (piece of clay)
(Oh) everybody wants somebody (somebody)
To be their own (somebody, somebody, somebody) piece of clay
Yeah, everybody wants somebody (somebody) to be (to be their own piece of clay)
Somebody, somebody
Somebody (somebody), somebody (to be their own piece of clay) (somebody somebody)
Somebody (somebody), somebody (to be their own piece of clay) (somebody somebody somebody)
