Eh-yeah, wonderful world, beautiful people 
You and your girl, things could be pretty 
But underneath this there is a secret 
That nobody can reveal 

Take a look at the world 
And the state that it's in today 
I am sure you'll agree 
We all could make it a better way 
With our love put together 
Everybody learn to love each other 
Instead of fussing and fighting 
Cheating but biting 
Scandalizing and hating 

Baby, we could have a wonderful world, beautiful people 
You and your girl things could be pretty 
But underneath this there is a secret 
That nobody can reveal, yeah now

Man and woman, girl and boy 
Let us try to give a helping hand 
This I know and I'm sure 
That with love we all could understand 
This is our world, can't you see 
Everybody wants to live and be free 
Instead of fussing and fighting 
Cheating but biting 
Scandalizing and hating, yeah 

We could have a wonderful world, beautiful people 
You and your girl things could be pretty 
But underneath this there is a secret 
That nobody can reveal, mmh yeah, yeah 

Talking about the wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, talking about you, 
Things could be pretty, talking about me
Wonderful world, talking about Nixon
Beautiful people, Harold Wilson
Wonderful world, power too
Beautiful people, and the Seagate
Wonderful world, beautiful people
Wonderful world, beautiful people
