What This Old World Needs    (1957)

What this whole world needs is a lot more lovin'
A lot less shovin' around
What this whole world needs is a lot less hatin'
Just straighten up and settle down

Now lovin' your neighbor is the spice of life
My, I said your neighbor not your neighbor's wife
What this whole world needs is a lot more lovin'
A lot less shovin' around

What this whole world needs is a lot more blessin'
A lot less messin' around
What this whole world needs is a lot less fightin'
To brighten up that worried frown

Just wish your neighbor well and that will help a lot
'Stead of wishin' you've had what your neighbor's got
What this whole world needs is a lot more lovin'
A lot less shovin' around

What this whole world needs is a lot more blessin'
A lot less messin' around
What this whole world needs is a lot less fightin'
To brighten up that worried frown

Just wish your neighbor well and that will help a lot
'Stead of wishin' you've had what your neighbor's got
What this whole world needs is a lot more lovin'
A lot less shovin' around
