Show me a river that's so deep
Show me a mountain so high
I'll show you love that'll last forever
Flying high so high

Show me a place where dreams are for dreamers
And all the things you wish come true yeah
I'd wish the world had all happy people
Then there'd be no more wishing to do

Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh whoo sweet sweet love

Sun shines over the rainbow
High on a hill
Take a ride on a magic carpet
And you'll know it's for real
The world is filled with
All the lonely people
Trying to find their way
All they need is a hand to guide them to a brighter day

Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh whoo sweet love

Sweet love that comes through the ages
Reach out and touch my soul
Give my life so much meaning
And everyone a heart of gold

Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh sweet love sweet sweet love
You need it Love
Oh oh oh sweet love sweet sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love

I know your searching
I know your searching
For a little love a little peace and undertanding
And I know it's been hard trying to find your way
But you got to keep on searching harder day by day
Cause I want you and you and you you you
You and you and you and you and you
To stand on up yes sir
Put a little love in your heart
A little heart in your love
Together we can make a way
Listen to me
Don't wonder too hard
Of what I'm trying to say
Cause this love loves the only way
Nothing but love

Oh oh sweet love
Oh oh oh oh oh sweet love
