********************************
Show me the answer
that will make everything O.K.
Show me the answer
to chase this nightmare away.
And make people listen,
and heed the sounds of war,
for it's telling us . . .
if hatred,
and destruction prevail,
we won't have a world anymore.

Show me the answer
that will clear polluted skies.
One that will forever
end starvations cries.
An answer that puts laughter
in place of our tears.
Show me a world
free from prejudice . . .
and fears.
I want to know the answers to end
abuses to a child,
that shelters the tame,
and saves the freedom of the wild.
Where, all through eternity,
there shall always live,
a world that has only love
and happiness to give!

Show me the answer
that will make the waters clear,
that will save the whales,
and the baby seals,
and the beauty of the deer.
An answer that will make mankind
want to love each other . . .
And mend the broken ties
between a father,
and a mother.
Where, all through eternity,
there shall always live,
a world that has only love
and happiness to give!

Show me the answer
that will make everything O.K.
Show me the answer
to chase this nightmare away.
And make people listen,
and heed the sounds of war,
for it's telling us ~ ~
if hatred,
and destruction prevail,
we won't have a world anymore.
