I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
For apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land
It's the real thing
What the world wants today
That's the way it'll stay
With the real thing (peace and love)
It's the real thing
(I'd like to teach the world to sing)
What the world wants to see
In perfect harmony (perfect harmony)
A song of peace that echoes on
And never goes away
Put your hand in my hand let's begin today
With your hand in my hand let me find the way
I'd like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land
