Eh-yeah, wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl things could be pretty
But underneath this there is a secret
That nobody can repeat, mmh

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 ev'rybody learn
To love each other
Instead of fussing and fighting,
Cheating but biting
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 repeat, yeah now

Man and woman, girl and boy,
Let us try to give a helping hand
This I know and I'm sure that
The love we all could understand
This is our world, can't you see
Ev'rybody wants to live and be free
Instead of fussing and fighting,
Cheating but biting
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 repeat,mmh yeah yeah

We could have a wonderful world, beautiful people
