"What the World Needs Now (Jackie DeShannon cover)" as written by and Hal David Burt F. Bacharach....
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, not just for some but for everyone, 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 'til the end of time

What the world needs now is love, sweet, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet, sweet love
No, not just for some but for everyone, for everyone

Lord, we don't need another meadow
There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh 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, too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love, sweet love
