Jimmy Cliff - Wonderful World, Beautiful People

Hey, yeah

Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this, there is a secret
That nobody can reveal

Take a look, at the world
And the state that it's in today
I am sure, you'll agree
We all could make it a better way
With our love, put together
Everybody learn to love each other

Instead of fussing and fighting
Cheating, backbiting
Scandalizing and hating
Baby, we could have a
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this, there is a secret
That nobody can reveal

Man and woman, girl and boy
Let us try to give a helping hand
This I know, and I'm sure
That with love we all could understand
This is our world, can't you see?
Everybody wants to live and be free

Instead of fussing and fighting
Cheating, backbiting
Scandalizing and hating
Yeah, we could have a
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this, there is a secret
That nobody can reveal

Talking about the
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl - talking about you
Things could be pretty - talking about me
Wonderful world - talking about Nixon
Beautiful people - Harold Wilson
Wonderful world - Pompidou
Beautiful people - and Kosygin
Wonderful world..
