I wish I could wave a magic wand
And make the whole world smile.
Wave away all pain and wars,
If only for a while.
I wish for now we'd understand,
Each others point of view.
Give help to the poor and needy,
Let good come, from all we do.
I wish they'd all lay down their guns,
Those men who love to fight.
Respect the lives of others,
Always do the thing that's right.
I guess, no matter, what I wish,
Most things will stay the same.
Bombs and guns, fights and wars,
Looking for someone else to blame.
I'll make my wish, I won't give up,
I'll hope that for a while,
Before the end of my lifetime,
I'll see the whole world smile.
