What the World Needs Now
What the world needs now is love sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just, too little of
What the world needs now, is love sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone

Lord, we don't need another mountain
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers, enough to cross
Enough to last, till the end of time

What the world needs now, is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just, too little of
What the world needs now, is love sweet love
No not just for some, but for everyone

Lord, we don't need another meadow
Oh there are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen Lord, if you want to know woah wo-oh

I said what the world needs now, is love sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just, too little of
What the world needs now, is love sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone
Everyone
Everyone
