(III) (B) If You Ruled the World

Read these lyrics and think about what you would do if you ruled the world.

If I Ruled The World

If I ruled the world__

Every day would be the first day of spring,___

Every heart would have a new song to sing___

And we'd sing of the joy every morning would bring.___-


If I ruled the world every man would be as free as a bird,___

Every 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___

Every 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.___


Every head would be held up high,____

There'd be sunshine in everyone's sky____

If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.____
