Sunday morning, I heard the preacher say 
Thou shall not kill 
I don't wanna hear nothing else about killing 
And that it's God's will 

'Cause our children are watching us 
They put their trust in us 
They're gonna be like us 
So let's learn from our history 
And do it differently 

[Chorus]
I hope for more love, more joy and laughter 
I hope we'll have more than we'll ever need 
I hope we'll have more 'happy ever after'
I hope we can all live more fearlessly 
And we can lose all the pain and misery 
I hope, I hope 

Oh, Rosie; her man - he gets too rough 
That's all she can say: is he's a good man 
He don't mean no harm 
He was just brought up that way 

But our children are watching us 
They put their trust in us 
They're gonna be like us 
It's okay for us to disagree 
We can work it out lovingly 

[Chorus]

There must be a way to change what's going on 
No, I don't have all the answers 

[Chorus]

I hope, I hope, I hope
