"What the World Needs Now Is Love" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
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
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
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
Oh, but just for every, every everyone

What the world needs now (oh)
Is love, sweet love (is love)
What the world needs now (oh)
Is love, sweet love (is love)
What the world needs now (oh)
Is love, sweet love (is love)
