"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

[Chorus]
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
No not just for some
But for everyone

Lord we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheatfields
Enough to grow
And there are sunbeams and moonbeams
Enough to shine
So 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

[Chorus]

More love, more love
Everybody know that
(the world needs love)
Everybody, Everybody knows that
(this world needs love)
This world, the whole world
(the whole world needs love)
The whole world, the whole world
(more love, more lovin')
There's not enough
