Worldly concerns3 years ago

As I walk through

This wicked world

Searchin’ for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself Is all hope lost?

Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,

There’s one thing I want to know:

What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

Ohhhh

What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

And as I walked on

Through troubled times

My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes

So where are the strong

And who are the trusted?

And where is the harmony?

Sweet harmony.

‘Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away, just makes me want to cry.

What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

Ohhhh What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

So where are the strong?

And who are the trusted?

And where is the harmony?

Sweet harmony.

‘Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away, just makes me want to cry.

What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

Ohhhh What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?

Ohhhh

What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding?
