Stephen Colbert – (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding lyrics

Stephen: As I walk through
This wicked world
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery? Ohhhh

Bear (Elvis Costello): And each time I feel like this inside
There's one thing I wanna know
Stephen and Bear (Elvis Costello): What's so funny bout peace love & understanding?
What's so funny bout peace love & understanding?

Toby: And as I walked on
Through troubled times
Feist: My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
Willie: So where are the strong

John: And who are the trusted?
Bear (Elvis Costello): And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

All: 'Cause each time I feel it slipping away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding? Ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout peace love and understanding?
