If I Could Write A Song    (1971)

If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
Think of all the music there would be.
The earth would start to ring, and everyone would sing
A song of peace and love and harmony.
Three billion voices singing together, what a happy sound.
And just to think, it's my music makin' the world go round.

I'd be number one and I would never need a gun,
I would do it with a melody,
If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
How wonderful this world would be.

If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
Think of all the music there would be.
The earth would start to ring, and everyone would sing
A song of peace and love and harmony.
Three billion voices singing together, what a happy sound.
And just to think, it's my music makin' the world go round.

People feeling sad would have a reason to be glad,
I would do it with a melody.
If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
How wonderful this world would be.

Lyrics by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield.
