O-o-h Child Lyrics


Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna be easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get be brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna be easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get be brighter

Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter
Some day, yeah
We'll get it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Ooh-oo child
Things are gonna get easier
Ooh-oo child
Things'll get brighter
Right now, right now
(You just wait and see how things are gonna be)

O-o-h Child
  • The Five Stairsteps were formed in Chicago in 1965 and comprised of Burke family members Clarence Jr., James, Aloha, Kenneth and Dennis. They got their name when "Momma Stairsteps" (as Betty Burke was affectionately called) noticed that her kids looked like stair steps when stood next to each other according to age.
  • This song of comfort and hope was written by Soul songwriter/producer Stan Vincent, who also worked with The Soul Generation and The Legionnaires.
  • Other artists to record this include Richie Havens, Daryl Hall and The Edwin Hawkins Singers.
  • Verizon used this in a commercial television advertisement campaign. In 2007, the song was also used in a commercial for the ADHD Road Map to Success Kit.
  • This features in a scene in Boyz and the Hood when Laurence Fishburne's character is riding in his car with his son. When "O-o-h Child" comes up on the radio, he declares, "Man, I love this song!" and starts singing along to it.
  • A cover by Dino peaked at #27 on the Hot 100 in 1993. It was the fifth and last single to reach the Top 40 for the Pop-Dance singer.
  • Cubie Burke, the youngest member of the group, was only five years old when he sang on this.
