if i ruled the world lyrics – tom jones

if i ruled the world
every 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
every man would be
as free as a bird
every 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 a wonderful dream
my world would wear
a smile on its face
like the man in the moon
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 day ever dawned
when i ruled the world
if i ruled the world
