Sunday morning, i heard the preacher say
Thou shall not kill,
I don't wanna, hear nothing else
About killing
And that it's God's will
'Cause our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They're gonna be like us
So let's learn from our history
And do it differently

I hope
For more love, for joy and laughter
I hope
We'll have more than we'll ever need
I hope
We'll have more happy ever afters
I hope
We can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

Oh, Rosy
Her man he gets too rough
And all she can say
Is he's a good man
He don't mean no harm
He was just brought up that way

And our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They're gonna be like us
Its okay for us to disagree
We can work it out Lovingly

I hope
For love, for joy and laughter
I hope
You'll have more than you'll ever need
I hope
You'll have more happy ever afters
We can all live more fearlessly
And you can lose all your pain and misery
I hope, I hope

There must be a way
To change what's going on
No I don't have all the answers

I hope
For more love, for joy and laughter
I hope
You'll have more than you'll ever need
I hope
They'll be more happy ever afters
I hope
We can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all our pain and misery
I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope
