You And Me Against The World Lyrics

Artist: Helen Reddy

Helen Reddy

You and me against the world,
Sometimes it seems like you and me against the world,
When all the others turn their backs and walked 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.

My son was 9 when I married, He gave me away, and we danced to this song. He loves it, to this day, and to this day, when I hear it, I still cry.

I am a single parent with a wonderful daughter. From the day she was born I sang this song to her & she would sing along. She learned the words eventually and would sing along with me. Even now at age 24 she remembers this. I've told her that in honor of our unity and love for each other I'd like to have this song sung at my funeral when the time comes.

I would lay across my bed with my son laying next to me, just after he was born, and sing this to him. The bond that we had was so strong, and still is to this day. I was very young, and my son's father was not around to help me, but I knew we would be o.k. as long as we had each other.

This song came out when I was a little girl. This is my and my mother's life theme song. Everything in this song happened.
Now mom has Alzheimer's and I sing this song to her all of the time. It soothes her. It soothes me and makes me cry.
by emms on 5/14/2009 10:44pm
to the single moms, be strong. your kids should get strength from you.

we all have been kids, but not all of us can be a mother.

please pray that i will someday sing this song to someone.

by Rachel on 9/29/2009 3:04pm
I used to sing this to my daughter during hard times with her father. Sadly she is having the same hard time with her daugters father.I told her to hear it. It makes us single mothers stronger. We'll aways have each other to carry on.
by Karen Calhoun on 10/2/2009 2:40am
This song was the song of my daughter Seari and I when she was a little girl. Everyone came to take her from me. In many ways, I lost the fight, but I'll always remember when it was she and I against the world.

my mom used to sing this to me when i was little, i just found out about it recently. I couldnt help to think about my cat when i ready the lyrics to this song (we had to put her down (7-31-09)

And now Im left in this world alone
A grueling fight in which Iíve never known
Hearing each and every unsavory tone
Trying not to leave this world unknown

Itís the memories of you I struggle through
From the dusk of night through the morning dew
Together ,forever, I thought, like glue

Its you and me against the world
Taking every challenge that can every be hurled
Pushing through with each skill I hone
Until I leave this world with a great big moan
by To mikie on 5/8/2010 6:25pm
I love you.MY son,my friend my beautifull child.It will always be you and me against the world

In the 70s a stray dog came to me. I had Mortaki J. Browndog, D.D.S. (Doctor of Doggy Science) for 10 years. This was "our" song. I still cry when I hear it.
by Michael's Mom on 9/26/2010 11:57am
I was a single mon and this was our song. It said everthing and I use to sing it to him. They others came into our lives but always it was this with us to. He grew up and had his own family and I had to learn to share him. I thought I would be first to go but we have just found out about his terminal cancer and I will not be the first to go. But once againg this song says it all.
by Mike on 10/2/2010 3:29pm
I've heard Ms. Reddy's recording of this song many times but never recognized its lyrics. So, now I know.

I taught my son how to swim, ride a two wheel bicycle, animal conservation, travel to New York by mass transit during his high school years and then--let go.
He's a NY City Firefighter--I worry and I can't let go.

I had a friend that passed away and her husband had this song sung at her funeral.

I use to sing this song to my three daugthers, specially when they were babies. The song is so sweet, and this is why they got caputre by the song even while they didn't undrstand a word.
Then... some years later my wife left home, and I raised the girls alone. I never thought this song can became a reality for us, but it happened.
It is still a song which can make me cry and to thinking in my girls, I must say, even if they are adults now.

30 years ago I was in tears as I left the grave site of my 1st born son who lived 8 days. When I got back into my car, the final verse of this song was on:
"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."
And then the little child's voice then says, "I love you Mommy"

Maybe it was coincidence, but I took it as a sign that my little boy, now angel, would always be with me.

LJ I am dedicating this song to you on your 16th birthday. This song describes you and I since your dad passed away 4 years ago. You are a wonderful person and I am so proud of you. You are 16 and you are starting to find your way in the world. It isn't easy but we all get through it. XXXOOO
by Ann on 1/24/2012 3:21pm
To my Amie, you are gone now and with the Lord but the memories of you are always there. It was you and me against the world for the 11 years you lived but I will go on thinking of the days of you and me. I love you sweetheart.
by Diane on 3/14/2012 6:22pm
This song had a lot of meaning for me when my son Ron was young.
March the sixth at age 38 he hung himself now I'm living the final verse instead of him, but it somehow gives me some comfort to hear it.
by Mark on 4/2/2012 2:55am
My mom use to sing this to me.. she was a single mom .. Now she has dementia, and I am a full cust single dad of a 5yo little girl...and now I sing this song to her... were going through some hard times....It means so much to me on so many levels
by beverly on 6/17/2012 7:21am
My daughter died in 2004 and since then, everytime I hear this song, it reminds me of our relationship. So even though she is not around to hear it, it has become our song.
by Bryna on 6/18/2012 2:08pm
My four daughters,ages 2 -8, dedicated this song to me over the phone. This was several years ago.It has remained OUR song through all the lean years, through all the mean years and through all the years in between.
by Ginny on 6/30/2012 10:18am
This was the song for my mother and I. When I got married I had them play it for my mother and I to dance to.
She passed away two days ago and when I was with her in her final hours it kept playing in my head. I can't help but cry every time I hear it. So simple and beautiful!
by Rosalinda on 10/1/2012 2:43am
So nice song.. It never grow old.. it transcends the beauty of a closer relationship, for a mom and daughter, or could be for husband and wife... For all you know, this is our theme song through the years, tho we are already of age...Thsnk you , have found this and ill open this page always to reminisce old timesq with hubby?..
by Bob on 10/3/2012 7:38pm
The end of this beautiful song, when the little girl says
"I love you mommy" really gets to my inner child.

The love that parents have for a child is probably the strongest "good" emotion a person will ever have.
by miguel from tijuana on 12/15/2012 5:38am
so much pain in my heart, because of the children in connecticut
by Chuck Davis on 5/6/2013 8:08am
Soothing voice, understandable lyrics. I long for the day when the "screamers" are gone
by Ed on 8/22/2013 2:15pm
Me and you is me and my late wife, 60 wonderful years of her and me against the world.
