Some people have many pairs of shoes
Some people don't have one
Some people travel all around the world
Some have never seen the sun
Some people have
Many friends
Some people don't have one
Some people spend their days smiling and laughing
Some people never have fun

We need a world where everyone's basic needs are met
We are all one, we must never forget
We need to come together and help each other out
We can make a better world, I have no doubt

Let's embrace unity and equality
Together we can triumph over adversity
Eliminate greed and apathy
With nature we must live in harmony
Let's embrace unity and equality
Together we can triumph over adversity
Eliminate greed and apathy
With nature we must live in harmony

Some people have
So much food
They throw half of it away
Some people have
Nothing to eat
They suffer
All day
Some people have
So much water
They use it
To keep their lawns green
Some people have no clean water at all
That is obscene

We need a world where everyone's basic needs are met
We are all one, we must never forget
We need to come together and help each other out
We can make a better world, I have no doubt

Let's embrace unity and equality
Together we can triumph over adversity
Eliminate greed and apathy
With nature we must live in harmony
Let's embrace unity and equality
Together we can triumph over adversity
Eliminate greed and apathy
With nature we must live in harmony

Imagine what we can accomplish
If we stop competing against each other
Imagine what we can accomplish
If we work together for the common good
Imagine what we can accomplish
If we all get to know each other
Let's listen to each other so that people are no longer misunderstood

Do ya think world peace is impossible?
Then let's demand the impossible
Let's demand the impossible, demand the impossible
Do ya think world peace is impossible?
Then let's demand the impossible
Let's demand the impossible, demand the impossible

Imagine what we can accomplish if we get rid of the things that divide us
No more countries, no more borders, no more religions, no more money
Imagine what we can accomplish if we start caring about each other
Let's be compassionate
And respect one another

Do ya think world peace is impossible?
Then let's demand the impossible
Let's demand the impossible, demand the impossible
Do ya think world peace is impossible?
Then let's demand the impossible
Let's demand the impossible, demand the impossible

Greed, selfishness, and apathy have got to go
Why have a lawn where plant foods can grow?
We need a world where all our necessities are met
We are all one, let us not forget

Imagine what we can accomplish if we all practice the Golden Rule:
Treat others as you'd like to be treated
Treat others as you'd like to be treated
Imagine what we can accomplish if we all live our values
Don't suppress your kindness
Being kind rocks
Imagine what we can accomplish if we get rid of money
Love of money is the root
Of a lot of evil
Imagine a world without capitalism
Imagine never worrying about
Money ever again
