Country: USA


If each little kid could have fresh milk each day,
If all of the workers had enough time to play,
If each homeless soul has a good place to stay,
This song was originally posted on protestsonglyrics.net
(CHORUS:)
It could be a wonderful world,
If we could consider each other,
a neighbor, a friend, or a brother,
It could be a wonderful, wonderful world.
It could be a wonderful world. It would

If there were no poor and the rich were content,
If strangers were welcome wherever they went,
If each of us knew what true brotherhood meant.

(CHORUS)
