If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning 
I'd hammer in the evening, all over this land 
I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning 
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters all over this land 

If I had a bell, I'd ring it in the morning 
I'd ring it in the evening, all over this land 
I'd ring it in danger, I'd ring out a warning 
I'd ring in love between my brothers and my sisters all over this land 
If I had a song, I'd sing it in the morning 
I'd sing it in the evening, all over this land 
I'd sing it in danger, I'd sing out a warning 
I'd sing in love between my brothers and my sisters all over this land 
Well I got a hammer and I got a bell 
And I got a song to sing all over this land 
It's the hammer of justice, it's the bell of freedom 
It's a song about love between my brothers and my sisters all over this land
