Sung by: the tramp and the do-goodersIn a world full of jive,Full of homicide and suicide,There’s no room for love and romance.In a world full of spiteFull of hatefulness and bitterness,Sincerity don’t stand a chance.And every night I close my eyesAnd ask the stars above,Oh where, oh where, oh where, oh where is love? Where is love and romance,And appreciation of storybooks, fairytalesAnd the ordinary things people did long ago.Where did it go? Where is love? Where is hope? Where is sympathy and trust? Where is faith? Where is joy in simplicity? And where is regard and respect? Oh where, oh where is love? This world is spinning and turningAnd my head is full of learning,But my thoughts keep on returningTo the things I used to know.I should be stronger,But my mind continually wandersAnd deep insideA voice keeps cryingWhere, oh where is love? Where is love and romance,And appreciation of storybooks, fairytales,And the ordinary things people did long ago? Where did it go? In a world full of jive,Full of homicide and suicide,There’s no room for love and romance.In a world full of rape,Full of hatefulness and bitterness,Sincerity don’t stand a chance.And every night I close my eyesAnd ask the stars above,Oh where, oh where, oh where, oh where is love? Where oh where is love? Where is love? Where is hope? Where is sympathy and trust? Where is faith? Where is joy and simplicityAnd where is regard and respect? Oh where, oh where is love? Oh where oh where is love? Oh where oh where is love?
