from the Columbia Pictures release Bless The Beasts And Children, a Stanley Kramer Production
Music and Lyrics by Barry DeVorzon and Perry Botkin, Jr.

Producer/Director Stanley Kramer contacted me in early 1971 regarding the possibility of our recording the title song of his new film.  We subsequently met with him in Las Vegas, where we were performing, and after listening to the demo, agreed to record this beautiful song.  Originally released on the flip side of “Superstar” (1971).
