There's too much hatin' goin' on not enough lovin'
Not enough helping hands too much pushin' and shovin'
Too many lazy people lookin' for a hand out
Too many cold and hungry children walkin' about
We didn't build this world but we can change it rearrange it
With God's help we can change it
[ guitar ]
There's too much shoutin' and shootin' bullets flyin'
Too many young men dyin' too many mamas cryin'
Too many people hidin' their heads in the sand
When they oughta be livin' and lovin' workin' and changin' this land
We didn't build this world...
[ guitar ]
There's too much meaness here not enough kindness
Too many things that's wrong too many people with blindness
We can put a great big smile on the Lord above
But He needs our help and the very first step is a thing called love
We didn't build this world...
We didn't build this world...
Lord we didn't build this world...
