Intro
O h yea-O h yea

V1
Am looking for some people who are looking for peace
maybe together we could make the war cease
now we can send mankind to the moon
and we can reach to the bottom of the sea
That's why it really kind of baffles me
that we cannot end wars and bring peace
and we cannot change the way people act
and we can not change the way people think
So if we sit back chilled out and relax
Civilisation will soon be extinct- thats why I am

Chorus
Am calling on......choir
I m calling on the whole wide world
On the whole wide all.
Come on people would help me
Help me scream and shout
Lets scream and shout coz we want peace
That we want peace
To say the least

V2
I dedicate this song to the common people
Caught in the middle of this common evil
I wish the world was a little bit fairer
time we start looking at the man in the mirror
Fear is the devil's policeman
Fear made good Germans side with Hitler so he can
Build a war of genocide and havoc was reeking
Silent of the lambs
coz nobody was speaking that's why I am

CH

V3
Somebody said after Rwanda-Never again
And after Rwanda-Its happening
Nor far from Rwanda-Just next door
Who is gonna shout for the poor people living in Darfur

The world's gone deaf the world gone blind
The world busy sitting down on their behind

Nobody care about the poor and needy
Too busy sucking up to the rich and the greedy

V4
HEYY!!!! for every hero there's a villain
I ain't kidding we gonna shout out standing up
Or seating one more time we got no more time
We gotta figure out a way that we could all combine
heyyyy
Like Jerricho the walls came tumbling down
The sound of voices had the city surrounded
You know what it's worth, time to put our voices to work
We gotta shake down heaven and earth-That's why I am

CH

Outro
Come on everybody come on-stand up stand up X2
If you want peace and I want peace X3
come on every body come on
stand up stand up X2
help me help me
help me scream and shout
if you want peace like I want peace
stand up X2
come on everybody come on
stand up stand up X2
stand up come on every body come on
stand up
