If I ruled the world


What would you do if you ruled the world?

If I ruled the world,
ev'ry day would be the first day of spring
Every heart would have a new song to sing
And we'd sing of the joy every morning would bring.

If I ruled the world,
ev'ry man would be as free as a bird,
Ev’ry voice would be a voice to be heard
Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred.

My world would be a beautiful place
Where we would weave such wonderful dreams
My world would wear a smile on its face
Like the man in the moon has when the moon beams.

If I ruled the world
every man would say the world was his friend
There'd be happiness that no man could end.

No my friend,
not if I ruled the world
Every head would be held up high
There'd be sunshine in everyone’s sky
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.
