I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing: Original Lyrics

(Sung with modified lyrics by The Hillside Singers
for the Coke commercial)

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

{Chorus}
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
"Ah, peace throughout the land"

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company

Id like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

{Repeat the Chorus}
