Jimmy Cliff – Wild World lyrics

(Cat Stevens)

Now that I've lost everything to you
You said you wanna start something new
And it's breakin' my heart you're leavin', baby, I'm grievin'
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you just like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breakin' my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you sad girl, don't be bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad air and beware

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you just like a child, girl

But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad air and beware

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you just like a child

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you just like a child
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile

Originally performed by 'Cat Stevens' (1970)
