Ba-da-ba-da (whoa)
Ba-da-ba-da (whoa)
Bu-da-bu-da (whoa)
Bu-da-bu-da (whoa)
Signs and wonders that the television shows
That life is a stage and we're all in the show

If we just give each other a chance
We might just fall in love
Picture us (in a land)
Shaking hands with my (brother)
(I'm offering) a dance that heals
Love is the key

Then they would dance something like this
Then they would groove something like this
Then they would sing something like this
Then it would be something like this
Tell me why can't more hungry people overcome
We're so quick to say God Bless America
Tell me what the hell is wrong with us
(Heaven I'm calling, heaven I'm calling)
(Heaven I'm calling, heaven I'm calling)

Where there's no more (no more war)
And respecting my (sisters)
(A melody) you can feel
All it takes is you and me
If I could make the world dance (whoa if I could make them dance)
If I could make the world groove (whoa if I could make them groove)
If I could make the world sing (whoa if I could make them sing)
If I could make the world love

Dance with me mama (come on)
Dance with me mama (oh)
Dance with me mama (dance with me)
Dance with me mama (come on)
Dance with me mama
Dance with me mama (come on)

A place that we can go
So meet me at the
And just step the night away
And go back because I miss those days
If I could make the world dance (whoa if I could make them dance)
If I could make the world groove (whoa if I could make them groove)
If I could make the world sing (whoa if I could make them sing)
If I could make the world love (I surely would)

If I could make the world (could make)
If I could make the world (oh if I)
If I could make the world

If I could make the world dance
Marvin Gaye inspired me to write that one y'all
You know every day is a special occasion y'all
Happy People babyBa-da-ba-da (whoa)
Ba-da-ba-da (whoa)
Bu-da-bu-da (whoa)
Bu-da-bu-da (whoa)
Signs and wonders that the television shows
That life is a stage and we're all in the show

If we just give each other a chance

Dance with me mama (come on)
Dance with me mama (oh)
