The song "Give A Little Bit" has impressively spanned two separate generations, with its message of love and tolerance echoing over more than 30 years. The principles espoused in this famous song are very much in line with Ilchi Lee's own ideas for world peace and understanding, especially with regards to the Earth Citizen Movement.
Originally written in 1977 by the group Supertramp, the tune quickly became one of the group's biggest hits. Those born more recently, however, are more than likely familiar with the cover version by the Goo Goo Dolls, which was released nearly 30 years later in 2006. This also became a big hit for the group and renewed interest in the song.
Looking at the lyrics, it's easy to see why the simple message has endured. The phrase "give a little bit/give a little bit of your love to me" is repeated multiple times throughout the song. Other lines like "see the man with the lonely eyes/take his hand, you'll be surprised" have become just as famous as the song's namesake.
Ilchi Lee also inspires his followers to love others and the world as a whole. He has been known to say "Do you know you have an infinite spring of love flowing from your heart? It never runs dry." That metaphor fits right in with the idea behind the song, which is all about giving this love to others.
