You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have

You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have

You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have

You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have
You say we got have peace

We got have peace
To keep the world alive
And war to cease

We got to have joy
True in our hearts
With strength we can't destroy

People hear us
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

We're begging to save the children
The little ones
Who just don't understand

Give them a chance
To breed their young
And help purify the land

We got have
We got have peace

People hear us
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

And the people in the neighborhood
Who would if they only could
Meet and shake the other's hand
Work together for the good of the land

Give us all an equal chance
It could be such a sweet romance
And the soldiers who are dead and gone
If only we could bring back one

He'd say, "We got to have peace
To keep the world alive
And war to cease
We got to have peace"

Let the world know
We got to have peace, peace
We got to have peace
Let the people say peace

We got to have peace
To keep the world alive
And war to cease

We got to have joy
True in our hearts
With strength we can't destroy

We got to have peace
I said, peace, peace, peace
Look [Incomprehensible]
We got to have peace
