You and Me Against the World

Written by Kenny Ascher and Paul Williams. Recorded by Helen Reddy (1974).

You and me against the world,
Sometimes it seems like you and me against the world,
When all the others turn their backs and walk away,
You can count on me to stay.

Remember when the circus came to town
How you were frightened by the clown,
Wasn't it nice to be around someone that you knew,
Someone who was big and strong and looking out for .....

You and me against the world,
Sometimes it seems like you and me against the world
And for all the times we've cried, I always felt that
God was on our side.

And when one of us is gone,
And one of us is left to carry on,
Then remembering will have to do,
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you,
Of you and me against the world.
