That's All
This Old World Needs
~ original release
 
That's all this ol' world needs,
that's all this ol' world needs . . .
A little more love an' sweet devotion,
a little less hate an' wild commotion,
that's all this world needs . . .
 
That's all this ol' world needs,
that's all this ol' world needs . . .
A little more truth an' no more lies,
and only rain fallin' from the skies,
that's all this world needs . . .
 
A little less envy, a little less greed,
a little more lookin' to your brothers need, 
a little more laughter, a little more song,
an' a world where people know right from wrong . . .
 
That's all this ol' world needs,
that's all this ol' world needs . . .
The innocence of children everywhere,
the peacefulness of an evening prayer,
that's all this world needs . . .

That's all this ol' world needs,
that's all this ol' world needs . . .
A little more truth an' no more lies,
and only rain fallin' from the skies,
that's all this world needs . . .
 
that's all this world needs . . .
