It's a tired old world that we're living in
Where the voice of reason is wearing thin
Got a beaten earth, got a hole in the sky
Got a whole lot of angry people crying
"I want an eye for an eye"
Compassion sunk without a trace
All trust is gone, have we lost our faith
Got a taste for hate, got a lot of guns
Got a whole lot of family values bitching
"Just blame it on the young"
chorus:
And a little peace goes a long long way
It's peace we want, for peace we pray
A little peace goes a long long way
It's peace we want, for peace we pray
Ain't so crazy, John Lennon knew
That a little peace goes a long long way when you want it to
We crush the ones who don't agree
Whose lifestyles clash with you and me
Got our TV sets full of talking heads
Got a whole lot of people walking around
Like the night of the living dead
(repeat chorus)
Our summer of love has come and gone
Us sixties kids are getting on
We had a dream way back then
No reason why we can't dream again
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
