I woke up today and a song was swimming in my head
And I hummed it to myself as I got out of bed
And on the way to take a shower it all just dawned on me
That a song like this just might go down in history
I quickly ran back to get my guitar, a pen and some paper

'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm tryin' to put the words where they belong
Yeah this whole world needs an anthem and I'm
Hoping everyone will sing along

Well I quickly got to work and put the song in gear
And my neighbor rang the doorbell and said it caught his ear
I was playing it so loud the whole neighborhood could hear
And at night from every household it became quite clear
Everyone was singing along
The same notes the same song
And I knew my work was done

'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm tryin' to put the words where they belong
Yeah, this whole world needs an anthem and I'm hoping everyone will sing along (will sing along)

Everyone was singing along
The same notes the same song
And I knew my work was done
'Cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm tryin' to put the words where they belong (where they belong)
Yeah this whole world needs an anthem (needs an anthem) and I'm hoping everyone will sing along (Will sing along)

Well this whole world (whole world) needs an anthem (needs an anthem)
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah this whole world needs an anthem (needs an anthem)
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along (will sing along)
