You who rule upon the land,
(Do it in the name of love)
You hold the future in your hand,
(Do it in the name of love)
When you take your people down the road,
(Do it in the name of love)
Before another bomb explodes.
(Do it in the name of ---)

Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?

And when you sail upon the sea
(Do it in the name of love)
This one's for you, this one's for me.
(Do it in the name of love)
Before another missile flies
(Do it in the name of love)
You who soar into the sky
(Do it in the name of ---).
Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?

And so I shout around the world
(Do it in the name of love)
To every boy and every girl,
(Do it in the name of ---).

Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?
Can you do it in the name of love?
