What The World Needs Now Is Love
Burt Bacharach/Hal David
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

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
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

Lord we don't need another meadow there are cornfields and wheatfields enough to grow there are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine oh listen lord if you want to know oh oh oh oh

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 oh but just but just for everyone
