Ike & Tina Turner - Workin Together - Single

Workin' Together is the title track from Ike & Tina’s most successful album Workin’ Together and was released as a single at the end of 1970. Both songs were written by Ike Turner, but the title song was credited to Eki Renrut, which is the backward spelling of Ike’s name. Ike & Tina promoted the single live at the tv show American Bandstand on January 16, 1971. For this song is a very rare video clip available, showing Ike & Tina live and a very private side of them, plus many scenes about violence, racism and war. The songtext is also very unusual for Ike & Tina, because it’s very politically and describes the problems of the world. Unfortunately, the message of the song is still very present - more than ever!

Ike & Tina Turner - Workin Together - Single
Calling out to all my sisters and brothers
Regardless of race, creed or color
The problems of the world will never be solved
Unless we put a little love in our hearts

Working together we can make a change
Working together we can help better things

So let us put our hate aside and let us let love be our guide
Let's now try little love for a change
Just try little love for a change

People disliking one another
Because they were born of a different color
And maybe I'm protesting the wars across the sea
'Cuz there are people here that are still not free

Working together we can make a change
Working together we can help better things

So let us put our hate aside and let us let love be our guide
I say let's now try little love for a change
Just try little love for a change

Unless we get together the world would never survive
And the hopes of the world will surly surly die
It takes People like you and me to speak up for what is right
'Cuz only then will the world see the light

Working together we can make a change
Working together we can help better things

So let us put our hate aside and let us let love oh yea be our guide
Let's now try little love for a change
Just try little love for a change
