(when the world is at peace)
(when the world is at peace)
I can see the day when its safe to walk the streets
when we learn to care for those lost in poverty
there would be no need for our daughters and our sons
to march up and down the streets singing we shall overcome
(do-it-to-me-now)

when the worlds at peace will it still be in one piece
I pray for the day when the bombs and the bullets cease
come lets make a change, or leave the world in dust
lets be the world of love for the ones that follow us
(do-it-to-me-now)

If we learn to love the way we learn to kill
then love will rule the world and hate would soon be still
some may say they love, but loves a sacrifice
love is not a state of mind, loves a fact of life
(do-it-to-me-now)

hate... be still
love... get behind me
peace... what we need
ha ha peace... is what we need now

da... da... whos got me?...whos got me? ha.
da da da, da da da da da da
da da dayah, da da da da da da
da da dayah, da da da da da da
da da dy, da da da da da da
whos got me? whos got me?
got to be peeeeace huh?
da da dayah, da da da da da da
da da dy, da da da da da da

This is where I have a problem with the rest... good luck
