Oh Eve, where is Adam, now you're kicked out of the garden?
Oh Eve, where is Adam, now you're kicked out of the garden?
Been wanderin' from shore to shore, now you find there's no more.
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Don't you wish love, only love, could save this world from disaster?
Lo-ove, only love, could save this world from disaster?
Don't you wish love could end the confusion, or is it just one more illusion?
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Well, if you want to have great love, you've got to have great anger.
I-if you want to have great love, you've got to have great anger!
When I see innocent folks shot down, you just want me 'shake my head and frown.
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

If you want to hit the target square, you better not have blind anger.
I-if you want to hit the target square, you better not have blind anger!
Or else it'll be one more time the correction creates another crime!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Well, if music could only bring peace, I'd only be a musician.
If music could only bring peace, I'd only be a musician!
If songs could do more than dull the pain, if melodies could only break these chains!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Oh Eve Eve, go tell Adam, We've got to build a garden.
Oh E-----ve, go tell Adam, We' got to build a new garden.
We' got to get aworkin' on abuildin' of a decent home for all o' God's children!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!

Oh Eve, you tell Adam, next time he asks you.
Yes Eve-Eve, you tell Adam, next time he asks you.
He'll say baby it's cold outside, What's the password to come inside?
You say
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
Four thousand languages in this world, means the same thing to every boy and girl
Oh-oh Pacem in Teris, Mir, Shanti, Salaam, Heiwa!
