I know I may be wishing
On a world
That may never be
But I'll keep on wishing 
No matter how hopeless
Or foolish
It may seem
I'll keep on wishing 

I'll toss my coins in the fountain
Look for clovers in grassy lawns
Search for shooting stars in the night
Cross my fingers and dream on 
I know I may be dreaming
Of a world
Far from present day reality
But I'll keep on dreaming 

No matter how unrealistic
Or naive
It may seem 
Always keep dreaming 
And toss your coins in the fountain
Look for clovers in grassy lawns
Search for shooting stars in the night
Cross your fingers and dream on 

We must always be thinking
Of a world
As a place of infinite possibilities
And always keep thinking 
No matter how hopeless
Or foolish
It may seem
Always keep thinking 

And toss our coins in the fountain
Look for clovers in grassy lawns
Search for shooting stars in the night
Cross our fingers and dream on
I'll keep on wishing
We must always keep dreaming
Of a world

With equality and justice
Thinking
There could be a world
Without poverty and sickness
Wishing
Of a world

Without hunger and homelessness
Dreaming
Of a world
Where all people live in peace
Dreaming
Of a world
Dreaming
On a world
