I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing

Words & Music:

The New Seekers


    D                                  A

I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

    A7                             G             D

I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company.

    D                                  A

I'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love,

     A               A7            G          A7     D

Grow apple trees and honeybees and snow-white turtle doves.


I'd like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand,

And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land.

That's the song that I hear, let the world sing today.

A song of peace that echoes on and never goes away.
