WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE

Words- Hal David

Music- Burt Bacharach

Chorus

What the world needs now is love, sweet love,

It's the only thing that there's just too little of.

What the world needs now is love, sweet love,

No, not just for some, but for ev'ryone.

Lord, we don't need another mountain,

There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb;

There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,

Enough to last till the end of time.

 

Chorus

 

Lord, we don't need another meadow,

There are cornfields and wheatfields enough to grow;

There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine,

Oh, listen, Lord, if you want to know.

 

Chorus

 

(Tag)

Everyone!

 

ONE WORLD... ONE VOICE

Words- Cliff Maag, Sam Francis

Music- Cliff Maag, Sam Cardon

 

No more walls between us, they were... Oh, so high.

No more war and heartache in our lives.

We will build a new world, a better place for man.

We must make this happen...yes we can!

 

CHORUS

One world, one voice, speak out, you have a choice.

Let every man know what it is to be free.

One world, one heart, lead on, doing your part.

Don't stop, give it all to make everyone see.

 

No more walls between us, they were.. Oh, so high.

No more war and heartache in our lives.

We will build a new world, a better place for man.

We must make this happen...yes we can!

 

CHORUS

 

(spoken)

Let us all speak with one voice...THE VOICE OF FREEDOM!

 

CHORUS

 

(TAG)

One world, one voice, one heart...ONE WORLD!

 

 

 

 

THE WALL CAME TUMBLIN' DOWN

Words- Sam Francis, Cliff Maag

Music- Cliff Maag, Sam Cardon

 

Some new events are taking place in our history

For the "Iron Curtain" countries are demanding liberty.

They're joining all together and speaking loud and clear

For the right to choose their government and to travel without fear.

 

Chorus

Yes, the voice of the people was finally heard and the wall came tumblin' down.

With a tear in their eye they gave a cheer as the wall came tumblin' down.

After all the years of waiting for the chance to be set free,

They crossed the wall to West Berlin with a hope for liberty.

This wall had been a barrier to keep them locked inside.

Some escaped to freedom, but many died who tried.

Now they are free to travel... we hope that this will be

The first step for these countries to have Democracy!

 

Chorus

 

(Bridge)

A brother meets his sister and a mother greets her son.

When people come together their hearts are joined as one.

United once again... embracing Liberty!

 

Chorus

HARMONY

Words and Music- Norman Simon, Artie Kaplan

 

The time has come, let us begin with all our voices joining in,

To sing of love and brotherhood and people doing what they should,

To help their fellow-man be free and fill this land with harmony,

The young, the old, the rich, the poor... making sounds never heard before.

Chorus

Harmony, harmony, let's all join in harmony

And sing away the hurt and fear

A great new day will soon be here.

 

Like the shepherd guards his sheep, watch your children as they sleep,

Like the potter turns his clay... Oh, help us shape a better day.

And let us sing a song of love... and there's one thing I'm certain of...

That love will fill the hearts of men and peace will come on earth again.

 

Chorus

 

(Tag)

Harmony, harmony, let's all join in harmony

And sing away the hurt and fear... a great new day is here!

 

 

 

 

 

I BELIEVE IN MUSIC

Words and Music- Mac Davis

Well, I could just sit around makin' music all day long.

Long as I'm making music, Can't do nobody wrong.

And who knows, maybe I'll come up with a song

That makes people wanna stop their fussin' and fightin'

Long enough to sing along.

Chorus

I, I believe in music, oh, oh, oh... I, I believe in love

I, I believe in music, oh, oh, oh... I, I believe in love!

Music is love and love is music...if you know what I mean.

People who believe in music are the happiest people I've ever seen,

So clap your hands and stomp your feet and shake your tambourine.

Lift your voices to the sky, God loves you when you sing.

 

Chorus

 

Music is the universal language and love is the key

To peace, hope, and understanding and livin' in harmony.

So take your brother by the hand and sing along with me.

And find out what it really means to be young and really free.

Chorus (repeat twice)

(Tag) I, I believe in love!

SING

Words and Music- Joe Raposo

La la la la la, La la la la la la, La la la la la la la,

Sing, sing a song...sing out loud, sing out strong.

Sing of good things, not bad...

Sing of happy, not sad.

Chorus

Sing, sing a song...

Make it simple to last your whole life long.

Don't worry that it's not good enough

For anyone else to hear...just sing, sing a song.

 

La la la la la, La la la la la la, La la la la la la la,

Sing, sing a song...Let the world sing along,

Sing of love there could be...

Sing for you and for me.

Chorus

(Tag)

Just sing, sing a song!

La la la la la, La la la la la la, La la la la la la.

 

IT'S A SMALL WORLD

Words and Music- Richard M Sherman, Robert B. Sherman

 

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears;

It's a world of hopes and a world of fears;

There's so much that we share that it's time we're aware

It's a small world after all.

Chorus

It's a small world after all...It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all...It's a small world after all.

There is just one moon and one golden sun,

And a smile means friendship to ev'ry one.

Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide,

It's a small world after all.Chorus

(Repeat first verse)

(Tag) It's a small world after all!

PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART Words and Music- Holliday, Myers, Deshannon

Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand,

Put a little love in your heart.

You see, it's getting late. Oh, please don't hesitate,

Put a little love in your heart.

 

Chorus

And the world will be a better place

And the world will be a better place

For you and me...You just wait and see!

 

Another day goes by...Still the children cry

Put a little love in your heart.

We want the world to know...we won't let hatred grow.

Put a little love in your heart.

 

Chorus

Wait and see!

Take a good look around...and if you're feelin' down,

Put a little love in your heart.

I hope when you decide, kindness will be your guide,

Put a little love in your heart.

Chorus

(Tag)

Take a good look around...Put a little love in your heart!

LET THERE BE PEACE

Words and Music- Sy Miller and Jill Jackson

Let there be peace on earth,

And let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth,

The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father,

Brothers all are we,

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony.

 

Let peace begin with me,

Let this be the moment now;

With every step I take,

Let this be my solemn vow:

To take each moment and live each moment

In peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth,

And let it begin with me!

 

REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEBODY'S HAND

Words and Music- Nicholas Ashford, Valerie Simpson

 

Chorus Reach out and touch somebody's hand... Make this world a better place... if you can.

Reach out and touch somebody's hand... Make this world a better place... if you can.

Just try...

 

Take a little time from your busy day to give encouragement to someone

Who's lost their way.

Would I be talking to a stone if I asked you to share a problem

That's not your own?

We can change things if we start giving...Why don't you...

 

Chorus

Just try...

If you see an old friend on the street ...He's down... Remember...

His shoes could fit your feet.

Try a little kindness and you'll see... it's something that comes very naturally.

We can change things if we start giving...Why don't you...

Reach out and touch somebody's hand.

 

La, la-la, la-la, la, Oh, oh, oh, oh,... Oh, oh, La, la-la, la-la, Oh, oh, oh, oh,

Reach out and touch somebody's hand... Make this world a better place... if you can.

Reach out and touch somebody's hand... Make this world a better place... if you can!
