It Could be a Wonderful World, song lyrics

Song: It Could be a Wonderful World
Lyrics: Hy Zaret(1) (2)

Music: Lou Singer(1) (3)
Year: 1947(1)
Country: USA

If each little kid could have fresh milk each day,
If all of the workers had enough time to play,
If each homeless soul has a good place to stay,
This song was originally posted on
It could be a wonderful world,
If we could consider each other,
a neighbor, a friend, or a brother,
It could be a wonderful, wonderful world.
It could be a wonderful world. It would

If there were no poor and the rich were content,
If strangers were welcome wherever they went,
If each of us knew what true brotherhood meant.
