What The World Needs Now Is Love Lyrics

by Sammy Davis Jr.

What the world needs now
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 everyone.

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.

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 everyone.

Lord, we don't need
Another meadow
There are cornfields
And wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams
And moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord,
If you want to know.

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 everyone.

No, not just for some,
Oh, but just for everyone.
