The New Seekers - I’d like to teach the world to sing
Tekst en muziek: Roger Greenaway, Roger Cook, Billy Davis en Bill Backer
(1971)






I’d like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves



I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company



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 I hear
I’d like to teach the world to sing
That the world sings today
In perfect harmony



I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
La lala la



I’d like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves
That’s the song I hear



I’d like to teach the world to sing
Let the world sing today
In perfect harmony
Hand in hand
And I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company
That’s the song I hear



I’d like to see the world for once
Let the world sing today
All standing hand in hand
Hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land
That’s the song I hear



I’d like to teach the world to sing
Sing it along
Let the world sing today
In perfect harmony
La lala la



I’d like to teach the world to sing
Sing it along
In perfect harmony
La lala la



I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
