We are the children of yesterday's dream
We are the promise of the future we bring
Waving the banner of love to all
To every nation the rich and the poor

*We are the world of the restless and young
And we need a hand to guide us
Helping each other, build each other
As long as we're together you and me

#For together we stand, divided we fall
Together we climb to the top of the world
We can be what we want for the world to see
That we are the children of yesterday's dream

We have the yearning to do what is best
Be someone special from all of the rest
Nation and brothers in unity
Building tomorrow for you and for me

Repeat * and #
Repeat #
We are the dream come true...
That we are the children, of yesterday's dream..
