Changed some of the words, made it more appropriate for a children band and for this era.
A live version, 1 year later: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6WpKV...

Some viewers are unhappy about changing the lyrics, considering it a sort of sacrilege. We actually believe that Beatles are among the greatest musicians of all times.
But let's face it: most of the kids today don't care. They listen to either death metal or shake-butt stuff.
My kids love Beatles but don't like some lyrics. Stefan, somewhat upset, asked me: "why so much 'love you baby' stuff? I don't want to sing it. Can't we change that?"
So we did. I think the "world without love is bad for you" gives a deeper meaning to this great song. And the other verse: "If there's no Love, Nothing is True" is in fact so deep that only few can grasp its meaning completely.
Regarding 'Pray for love', it's a different story; when they sing 'love me do' altogether it's one thing, but the girl alone didn't sound right. There are plenty of nasties who would have made fun of it.
And last, the fact that we mentioned God at the end: we take it as it is. You can take it as a metaphor of Love in the purest form.

There is another version of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t6v0U... - voices are better, but Cornelia was kindof busy with her sleeves :-)

Watch also the great performance of Stefan (9 yo) playing on 9 instruments:

The children were musically trained with software from:

Stefan (9) - , Voice, Harmonica, Guitar, Recorder
Olga (8) - Voice, Keyboard
