In this world...we can all get along
In this world...everybody belongs
If we all share the dream and we all sing this song
In this world we can all get along.
When we respect each person who we meet in our lives
We become better people in everyone’s eyes
Respecting one another is a very good start
It shows we have love in our hearts
It shows we have love in our hearts.
If people need a hand it’s nice to know someone’s there
It makes them feel better when they know that we care
A friendly gesture is all that they need
All people are like you and me
All people are like you and me.
When we open our hearts good feelings abound
It brings us together and builds common ground
The bonds that we share grow stronger each day
To peace they show us the way
To peace they show us the way.
Looking after each other helps harmony bloom
‘Cause the feelings that flourish won’t pass very soon
We all know the promise of one little seed
It’s something that everyone needs
It’s something that everyone needs.
