What the world needs now is love sweet love,
Its the only thing that there's just to little of,
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
No, not just for some but 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, enough to last till the end of time,
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
Its the only thing that there's just to little of,
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
No, not just for some but 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...
