"I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" as written by and B. Davis B. Backer....
(r. cook/r. greenway/b. backer/b. davis)

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
(that's the song I hear)
I'd like to see the world for once
(let the world sing today)
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land
That's the song I hear
(that's the song I hear)
Let the world sing today
(let the whole wide world keep singing)
A song of peace that echoes on
And never goes away

(repeat 1st stanza and chorus)

Put your hand in my hand
Let's begin today
Put your hand in my hand
Help me find a way

(repeat chorus til fade)
