Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Gonna take it one day at a time
I've made my resolution
I've opened up my eyes
Today I'm gonna try and change the world

I'm gonna say hello to my neighbor
Greet him with a smile
Shake the hand of a stranger
Sit and talk to him for a while
Tell someone I love them
From the bottom of my heart
Today I'm gonna try to change the world

(Repeat chorus)

Gonna make sure my children
Know right from wrong
Never turn my back
On those who need someone
Always gonna try to see myself
Through another's eyes
Today I'm gonna try to change the world

(Repeat chorus)

Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Not for me, but for those I'll leave behind
I've made my resolution
Change it one day at time
Today I'm gonna try and change the world

    We heard this in church this morning, and what an impressive, inspirational, loving, introspective presentation this is. Very hopefull, but tear jerker. Please listen and watch it. I think it originated in.
    Australa and the man sounds a bit like Bruce Spingfield.

    It starts with us doesn't it... Simple little things have such meaning and are able to ripple through our home to our community and to the world... Very powerful song... As i grow and change then have something to offer and all that i offer comes back to keep me moving forward, sharing and changing...

    What every body should do to have a better world. In 2012 some people do not eat 3 meals by day, peoples ca not buy pills for their health problem. And other people go to the moon . What a sick world
