Lyrics

"Make love not war," we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight

But not with guns and knives
We've got to save the lives
Of every boy and girl
That grows up in this world

There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round

It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round

They think that love's a lie
But we can teach them how to try
Love means to understand
Reach out for someone's hand

'Cause everything you do
Comes back in time to you
We have to change our fate
Before it gets too late

There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round

It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round

(We've got to take a stand)
Love makes the world go round
Love makes the world go round
(If you don't hear the sound)

Love makes the world go round

Don't judge a man 'til you've been standin' in his shoes
You know that we're all so quick to look away
'Cause it's the easy thing to do
You know that what I say is true

La la, la la, la la la
La la, la la, la la la
La la, la la, la la la

Love, love makes the world go round
Love makes the world go round
Love makes the world go round

"Make love not war," we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight

There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round

It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round

(We've got to take a stand)
Love makes the world go round
Love makes the world go round
(If you don't hear the sound)
Love makes the world go round

La la, la la, la la la
La la, la la, la la la
La la, la la, la la la
