I'm checking out the headlines,
They say the human race is dying.
Boys and girls are crying
In a picture of their nations fighting...
The more I think about it,
The harder it gets for me to find the things that
Used to make me happy and I know it's all been said before but

I need peace and I need love,
I need all the things sent from above,
I need chocolate cake and lemon pie,
I need all the things that make me smile,
I want rain, and I want sunshine,
I want all the things sent from the sky
That put a smile upon my face,
And make this world a better place

When I'm feeling down, I think of
Simple things that help me get by...

Power and religion
Are holding hands against all reason,
Soon the politicians
Will be touching little boys with the pop's permission...
I never thought I'd cry
From seeing people die for their own convictions
I know it's all been said before
But still you don't seem to stop the war

I need peace and I need love,
I need all the things sent from above,
I need chocolate cake and lemon pie,
I need all the things that make me smile,
I want rain, and I want sunshine,
I want all the things sent from the sky
That put a smile upon my face,
And make this world a better place
I need the simple things that help me get by

I give no name to those who claim
The right to use our lives for power games
Leaders and rulers
I believe will soon shoot us
If we don't stand and fight
For our right to a better world
And I know it's all been said before
But still you don't seem to stop the war...

When it's all too much
And I'm feeling low...
When it's all too much,
I need simple things like peace
And I need love
I need all the things sent from above,
I need chocolate cake and lemon pie,
I need all the things that make me smile,
I want rain, and I want sunshine,
I want all the things sent from the sky
That put a smile upon my face,
And make this world a better place
