There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart;
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part.

A hug's the way to share the joy
And sad times we go through,
Or just a way for friends to say
They like you'cuz you're you.

Hugs are meant for anyone
For whom we really care,
From your grandma to your neighbour.
Or a cuddly teddy bear.

A hug is an amazing thing,
It's just the perfect way
To show the perfect love we're feeling
But can't find the words to say.

It's funny how a little hug
Makes everyone feel good,
In every place and language,
It's always understood.

And hugs don't need equipment,
Special batteries, or parts,
Just open up your arms
And open up your heart.
