like to build the world a home And
furnish it with love Grow
apple trees and honey bees And
snow-white turtle doves Chorus

like to teach the world to sing In
perfect harmony I'd
like to hold it in my arms And
keep it company (That's
the song I hear) I'd
like to see the world for once (Let
the world sing today) All
standing hand in hand And
hear them echo through the hills For
peace throughout the land That's
the song I hear (That's
the song I hear) Let
the world sing today (Let
the whole wide world keep singing) A
song of peace that echoes on And
never goes away (Repeat

1st stanza and chorus) Put

your hand in my hand Let's
begin today Put
your hand in my hand Help
me find a way (Repeat

chorus till fade)
