"Why Can't We" as written by Allen Shamblin, Austin Cunningham and Chuck Cannon....
Look how the wind carries the seed
See how the soil supplies what it needs
The rain falls, the sun shines and a flower breaks free
And it all works together, why can't we

And I have seen children at play in the park
Skin shades of ivory, red, yellow and dark
Well, my eyes saw colors their little hearts could not see
They were playing together, why can't we

Why can't we, why can't we
I can love you and you can love me
Why can't we, why can't we
Set our foolish pride free, just be and let be
Why can't we

I had a dream about a lion and a lamb
They were playing together and there was peace in the land
And swords became plowshares 'cause there were no enemies
And I woke up and wondered, God why can't we

Why can't we, why can't we
I can love you and you can love me
Why can't we, why can't we
Set our foolish pride free, just be and let be
Why can't we

Set our foolish pride free, just be and let be
Why can't we, m-m-m-m
Why can't we
