New Seekers – I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing lyrics

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

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land

That's the song I hear
Let the world sing today
A song of peace
That echoes on
And never goes away

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

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

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

    A marketing agent for coca-cola was at an airport. There was a lot of frustration and anger, but he saw that some people were laughing while drinking a coke. That was the genesis for a tune featured in coca-cola's hilltop commercial, which may be the most famous commercial ever. The tune was so popular, the band who recorded it for coke wrote new lyrics (featuring no brand names), and released a single, titled "i'd like to teach the world to sing (in perfect harmony). "

    It's a song that is meant to bring peace to the planet; and with peace comes the request that peace never go away. The key words are home and love. If you want to read meaning into apples, honey, or turtle doves... apples are a fruit that have been around forever. Honey is the only food that never spoils. And turtle doves are love and peace. Some symbols are both timely and timeless!
