I'D like the world to sing
I'd like to build the world a home
and furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees
and snow-white turtle doves.
I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony,
I'd like to hold it in my arms
and keep it company.
I'd like to see the world for once
all standin hand in hand
and hear echo through the hills
for peace throughout the land.
A song of peace that echos on
and never goes away
put your hand in my hand
help me find a way.
That's the song I hear,
That's the song I hear.
Let the world sing today,
Let the world sing today.
