I’d like to teach the world to sing (not holy song 不是聖歌)
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.
Ah, peace throughout the land.
That’s the song I hear, that’s the song I hear.
That the world sings today, that the world sings today.
A song of peace that echo’s on, and never goes away.
Put your hands in my hands, let’s begin today.
Put your hands in my hands, and help me find a way. (repeat ＊)
