Wherever you wander, wherever you roam,
You'll find things aren't so different from
right here at home;
People all over the world feel the same;
We're trying to save it, this isn't a game.
Arms, arms are for hugging,
And love is to give;
Peace is for all people,
And life is ours to live!
All over this planet, people are scared;
From Moscow* to Boston these feelings are shared;
Every place has its beauty, we all have our friends;
There isn't a soul who would want it to end.
Oh, people we've got to get together,
We've got to make our feelings known;
Whoever you are, wherever you're from,
In this you are not alone.
Whoever you talk to, you'll find this is true;
They all want the same thing as me and you;
We all love our children, we all love our land,
And a smile is a language we all understand—
