(single by Michael Jackson and Various Artists; released, via Internet pay download in November, 2001)

How many people will have to die
Before we will take a stand?
How many children will have to cry
Before we do all we can?
If sending your love is all you can give
To help one live.

How many times can we turn our heads
And pretend we cannot see?
Healing the wounds of our broken earth,
We are one global family.
Just sending your prayers
Is something you feel
Helping one heal.

[Chorus]

What have I got that I can give?
(What have I got that I can give, tell me)
What have I got that I can give?
To love and to teach you,
To hold and to need you,
What more can I give?

Brother to brother, lay down
Our fears and reach out and
Make a pact.
Show him the love that is in
Our hearts, let us bring
Salvation back.
Just sending your love has the power to heal
So let's all give.

What have I got that I can give?
(It's not a lot to give, just a little bit)
What have I got that I can give?
(Everyone should be a part of it)
To love and to teach you,
To hold and to need you,
What more can I give?

[Bridge]

Say the words, I'll lay 'em down for you,
Just call my name, I am your friend.
See, then, why do they keep teaching us
Such hate and cruelty?
We should give over and over again!

What have I got that I can give?
(We should give over and over again!)
What have I got that I can give?
(Oh my God, oh my God!…)
See, to love and to teach you,
To hold and to need you,
What more can I give?

What have I got that I can give?
(Give to you, we're gonna give to you)
What have I got that I can give?
To hold and conceal you,
To love and to heal you,
What more can I give?

What have I got that I can give?
(What have I got)
(Send them your prayers)
What have I got that I can give?
(Show the world how much you really care)
(To love you)
To love and to teach you,
(To hold you, to need you)
What more can I give?
