dance over the water lyrics – nana mouskouri

as i’ve looked around
at the life i’m living
more and more i found
life is for the giving
children know the way
loving and forgiving

all over the world
the children are singing
all over the world
you see them at play
why must we destroy
the joy they are bringing
all over the world
let love show the way

then we were very young
love’s a gift for sharing
but as we grow up
we forget the caring
why must we go on
distrusting and despairing

all over the world
the children are singing
all over the world
you see them at play
why must we destroy
the joy they are bringing
all over the world
let love show the way

innocent and free
hear the children’s laughter
why can’t people be
happy ever after
let this song of hope
ring from every rafter

all over the world
the children are singing
all over the world
you see them at play
why must we destroy
the joy they are bringing
all over the world
let love show the way

there in neverland
see the children playing
walking hand in hand
innocent and playing
can’t we undrestand
a single word they’re saying

all over the world
the children are singing
all over the world
you see them at play
why must we destroy
the joy they are bringing
all over the world
let love show the way

all over the world
the children are singing
all over the world
you see them at play
why must we destroy
the joy they are bringing
all over the world
let love show the way.
