I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing

I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing is the title song in the video of the same name. It was originally sung by The New Seekers in 1971.

Lyrics

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,
For peace throughout the land.

That’s the song I hear,
Let the world sing today,
A song of peace that echoes on,
And never goes away.

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,
For peace throughout the land.

That’s the song I hear,
Let the world sing today,
A song of peace that echoes on,
And never goes away.

A song of peace that echoes on,
And ne-e-ve-e-er go-o-oes a-a-wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay.
