"Pipes Of Peace" as written by and Paul James Mccartney....
I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

All round the world
Little children being born to the world
Got to give them all we can till the war is won
Then will the work be done

Help them to learn (help them to learn)
Songs of joy instead of burn, baby, burn, (burn, baby burn)
Let us show them how to play the pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace

Help me to learn

Songs of joy
Instead of burn, baby, burn
Won't you show me how to play (how to play)
The pipes of peace (pipes of peace)
Play the pipes of peace

What do you say (what do you say)
Will the human race be run in a day (in a day)
Or will someone save this planet we're playing on
Is it the only one,(what are we going to do

Help them to see (help them to see)
That the people here are like you and me (you and me)
Let us show them how to play (how to play)
The pipes of peace (pipes of peace)
Play the pipes of peace, ooh

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disappear
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

    General CommentWhat, no posts? A lot of the time I think songs like this are twee, but this is just beautiful. One of Paul's best I really think.

    General CommentI just watched the film "Joyeux Noel" and remembered seeing this song's video when I was a kid and how it shows the X-mas Truce during WWI... This is indeed a beautiful song with a very positive message.

    General CommentPaul McCartney has always been a bum poet, but times like these, a great melody can really take these lyrics to a higher place. Seems like a very earnest hope for peace for future generations.. Also, a peace pipe is usually something you smoke, but paul is asking to be taught how to PLAY them... interesting...
