If everyone were sugar sweet
And people got along…
If teams would play and not compete
And all were hale and strong…

If soldiers didn’t have to fight
And crime was in the past…
If no one felt the slightest slight
And love would always last…

If every day were sunny
And there never was a cloud…
If everyone had money
And no whining was allowed…

The world would be a different place
From that which we know well,
A tonic for the human race
And tedious as hell!
