I saw the time
When every baby that was born
Was wanted and had a place to stay warm
And when the farmers could exist
To feed the hungry in our midst
I saw the time
When the poor could still have pride
And hard work paid off in time
I saw the time
When the homeless had a home
And the old could carry on
I saw the time, I saw the time

I saw the time!
Dream after dream, scene after time
Time after time, I saw the time

I saw the time
When special kids got a chance
And handicapped could advance
I saw the time
When we walked the streets without risk
And families still prayed, and hugged, and kissed
I saw the time
When nature was so clean
We could eat from the field and streams
I saw the time
And when the bombs would not explode
And all the people got to vote
I saw the time, I saw that time

Oh, I saw the time!
Dream after dream, scene after scene
Time after time, I saw the time

I saw the time
When we went to the moon
And disaster struck too soon
I saw that time
When little Samantha Smith was so brave
And made that grin and call
And when the Bears' Vincent Woody
Paced the sidelines and coached football
When John, George, and Martin walked around
I saw the time
When John, Paul, George and Ringo brought the sound
When everybody held hands
And the children smiled, mammas and daddies smiled,
Grandmas and Grandpas smiled, and God smiled

I saw the time!
Dream after dream, scene after scene
Time after time, whoa I saw the time!
