What the World Needs Now Is Love
Words & Music by Hal David and Burt Bacharach

What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
It's the only thing
that there's just too little of.
What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
No, not just for some,
but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need
another mountain.
There are mountains
and hillsides enough to climb.
There are oceans
and rivers enough to cross,
enough to last
'til the end of time.

What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
It's the only thing
that there's just too little of.
What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
No, not just for some
but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need
another meadow.
There are corn fields
and wheat fields enough to grow.
There are sunbeams
and moonbeams enough to shine.
Oh, listen, Lord,
if you want to know.

What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
It's the only thing
that there's just too little of.
What the world needs now
is love, sweet love.
No, not just for some,
Lord, but for everyone.

(Needs now)
is love, sweet love.
What the world needs now
is love for everyone.
