Ooh Child by The Five Stair Steps - Music to Soothe the Soul


When this song came out in 1970 I was 14 and in turmoil over my parents' divorce. I listened to it from my small transitor radio as I sat in my sycamore tree with no one to comfort me and tears poured from my eyes. I found comfort in this song.

For those of you who find this time of year difficult, for whatever reason, be it the shortness of the days, or that you cannot be with loved ones, or that you have lost a loved one, or that you are ill and/or in pain, or short on funds, I hope you find comfort in this song as I did long ago.


Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter

Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter

Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna be easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get be brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna be easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get be brighter

Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter

Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter

Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Right now, right now
