what the world needs now is love lyrics – burt bacharach

what the world needs now is love, sweet love
it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of

what the world needs now is love, sweet love
no not just for some but for everyone
lord, we don’t need another mountain
there are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
there are oceans and rivers enough to cross
enough to last till the end of time
what the world needs now is love, sweet love
it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of

what the world needs now is love, sweet love
no, not just for some but for everyone
lord, we don’t need another meadow
there are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
there are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
oh listen, lord, if you want to know

what the world needs now is love, sweet love
it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
what the world needs now is love, sweet love
no, not just for some but for everyone
no, not just for some, oh, but just for everyone
