I don't know what the world may need
But I'm sure as hell that it starts with me
And that's a wisdom
I've laughed at

I don't know what the world may want
But a good stiff drink it surely don't
So I think I'll go and fix myself a tall one

'Cause what the world needs now
Is a new kind of tension
'Cause the old one just bores me to death

'Cause what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head

I don't know what the world may need 
But a V8 engine's a good start for me
Think I'll drive and find a place
To be surly

I don't know what the world may want
But some words of wisdom could comfort us
Think I'll leave that up to
Someone wiser

'Cause what the world needs now 
Are some true words of wisdom 
Like la la la la la la la la-la
 
'Cause what the world needs now 
Is another folk singer 
Like I need a hole in my head

I don't know what the world may need
And I never grasped your complexities 
I'd be happy just to get
Your attention

And I don't know what the world may want
But your long sweet body lying next to mine
Could certainly
Raise my spirits

'Cause what the world needs now 
Is a new Frank Sinatra 
So I can get you in bed

'Cause what the world needs now 
Is another folk singer 
Like I need a hole in my head

What the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is a new Frank Sinatra so I can get you in bed

What the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is another folk singer like I need a hole in my head
