Lyrics
Reach out and touch somebody’s hand
Make this a better world if you can
We love you, reach out and touch somebody’s hand
Why don’t you make it a better world if you can

Turn around and touch your brother, touch your sister
Reach out and touch, extend your hands, somebody’s hand
Make this a better world if you can
Can I get somebody to help me to say that?
Reach out and touch somebody’s hand
Make it a better world if you can

Reach out and touch somebody’s hand  (reach out and touch)
Need I say more than that, need I say more, no
Reach out and touch
Reach out and touch, wherever you are, your brother’s hand
Go on and make it a better world, I tell you if you can

Oh Lord, reach out  (reach out and touch)
Reach out and touch somebody’s hand
Go on and make it a better world, better world if you can
I love you  (reach out and touch)
I love you, and I love you
Call me the moment you get back, I love you

(Reach out and touch, uh, uh, uh)
(Reach out and touch, uh, uh, uh)
(Reach out and touch, uh, uh, uh)
(Reach out and touch, uh, uh, uh)

Català – Ofereix I Toca (La Mà A Algú)
Ofereix i toca la mà a algú
Fes d’aquest un món millor si pots
T’estimem, ofereix i toca la mà a algú
Per què no convertir-lo en un món millor si pots

Gira’t i toca el teu germà, toca la teva germana
Ofereix i toca, estén les mans, la mà a algú
Fes d’aquest un món millor si pots
Puc aconseguir que algú m’ajudi a dir això?
Ofereix i toca la mà a algú
Fes-lo un món millor si pots

Ofereix i toca la mà a algú  (ofereix i toca)
Cal que digui res més que això, cal que digui res més, no
Ofereix i toca
Ofereix i toca, siguis on siguis, la mà al teu germà
Continua i converteix-lo en un món millor, et dic, si pots

Oh Senyor, ofereix  (ofereix i toca)
Ofereix i toca la mà a algú
Continua i converteix-lo en un món millor, un món millor si pots
T’estimo  (ofereix i toca)
T’estimo i t’estimo
Truca’m quan tornis, t’estimo

(Ofereix i toca, uh, uh, uh)
(Ofereix i toca, uh, uh, uh)
(Ofereix i toca, uh, uh, uh)
(Ofereix i toca, uh, uh, uh)
