man: What is segration?
kid: I don't know what segration is.
man: What is bigotry?
kid: I don't know what bigotry is.
man: What does hatred mean?
kid: I don't know what that is.
man: What is prejudice?
kid: Mmm, I think that is when someone is sick.

[Military clip/What The World Needs Now singing in the background.]
Anybody here seen my old friend John
Can you tell me where he's gone.

[John F. Kennedy shooting documentary]
Anybody here seen my old friend Martin
Can you tell me where he's gone.
He freed lotta people
But it seems the good they die young

[Martin Luther King speech]
Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby
Can you tell me where he's gone.

[Robert Kennedy shooting documentary]
What the world needs now
Is love sweet love
No not for some
But for everyone.

man: What is segration?
kid: I don't know what segration is.
man: What is bigotry?
kid: I don't know what bigotry is.
man: What does hatred mean?
kid: I don't know what that is.
man: What is prejudice?
kid: Mmm, I think that is when someone is sick.
