What the World Needs Now

What the World Needs Now


There’s only one thing lacking,

Anywhere you go.

There’s only one thing missing,

Don’t you know.


Famine and drought and pestilence,

Crime and drugs and need.

Anywhere we look on Earth,

There’s poverty, hunger, and greed.


So many, many problems.

Is there anything to do?

I hold that one solution

Would make the world like new.


If we could love each other,

We’d come up with a way

To fix the other problems.

It might only take a day.


If we had love, respect and love

For people everywhere,

There’d be enough to go around,

For folks would want to share.


What the world needs now

Is love, sweet love.

That’s the only thing

There’s just too little of.
