If I ruled the world, ev’ry day would be the first day of spring,
Ev’ry heart would have a new song to sing
And we’d sing of the joy ev’ry 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, ev’ry 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.
Ev’ry head would be held up high,
There’d be sunshine in ev’ryone’s sky
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.
