Wonderful World

This song is by Jimmy Cliff and appears on the album Jimmy Cliff (1969).

(Jimmy Cliff)

Eh-yeah, wonderful world, beautiful people

You and your girl things could be pretty

But underneath this there is a secret

That nobody can repeat - mmh

Take a look at the world and the state that it's in today

I am sure you'll agree we all could make it a better way

With our love put together ev'rybody learn to love each other

Instead of fussing and fighting, cheating but biting

Scandalising and hating

Baby, we could have a wonderful world, beautiful people

You and your girl things could be pretty

But underneath this there is a secret

That nobody can repeat - yeah now

Man and woman, girl and boy, let us try to give a helping hand

This I know and I'm sure that the love we all could understand

This is our world, can't you see

Ev'rybody wants to live and be free

Instead of fussing and fighting, cheating but biting

Scandalising and hating

Yeah, we could have a wonderful world, beautiful people

You and your girl things could be pretty

But underneath this there is a secret

That nobody can repeat - mmh yeah yeah

We could have a wonderful world, beautiful people ...

From 'Wonderful World, Beautiful People' (1970)
