Oh Eve,... where is Adam - now you're kicked out of the garden?
Oh Eve,... where is Adam - now you're kicked out of the garden?
... been wanderin' from shore to shore,... now you find there's no more.
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Don't you wish love - only love - could save this world from disaster?
Lo-ove... - only love - could save this world from disaster?
Don't you wish love could end the confusion,... or is it just one more illusion?
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Well, if you want to have great love,... you've got to have great anger.
I-if you want to have great love,... you've got to have great anger!
When I see innocent folks shot down,... you just want me 'shake my head and frown.
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

If you want to hit the target square,... you better not have blind anger.
I-if you want to hit the target square,... you better not have blind anger!
Or else it'll be one more time... the correction creates another crime!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Well, if music could only bring peace,... I'd only be a musician.
If music... could only bring peace,... I'd only be a musician!
If songs could do more than dull the pain,... if melodies could only break these chains!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Oh Eve... Eve, go tell Adam,... We've got to build a garden.
Oh E-----ve, go tell Adam,... We' got to build a new garden.
We' got to get aworkin' on abuildin'... of a decent home for all o' God's children!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Oh Eve,... you tell Adam,... next time he asks you.
Yes Eve-Eve,... you tell Adam,... next time he asks you.
He'll say baby it's cold outside,... What's the password to come inside?
You say...
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
Four thousand languages in this world,... means the same thing to every boy and girl...
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
