I know I may be wishing
That may never be
No matter how hopeless
It may seem

Look for clovers in grassy lawns
Cross my fingers and dream on
Of a world
But I'll keep on dreaming
No matter how unrealistic
It may seem
And toss your coins in the fountain
Search for shooting stars in the night

Of a world
And always keep thinking
Or foolish
Always keep thinking
And toss our coins in the fountain
Search for shooting stars in the night
I'll keep on wishing
Of a world
With equality and justice
There could be a world

Where all people live in peace
Of a world
On a world
