(Dolly Parton)

There's a bit of magic in a simple little smile 
Something that just makes life seem a little more worthwhile 
And there's a world of meaning in the touch of someone's hand 
A gentle touch that let's your brother know you understand 
Oh if people would stop taking and just once try to give 
We could make the world we're living in a better place to live 
La la la la la la la la la la la la 

And if we'd love one another instead of finding faults 
We could afford the price of peace, love is all it costs 
Oh wouldn't it be great to live and sing in harmony 
Everybody take your brother's hand and sing my song with me 

La la la la la la la la la la la la 

All life has to offer that's what most folks desire 
But offer nothing in return, cause they don't seem to care 
And if we'd ask to be forgiven and be willing to forgive 
We could make the world we're living in a better place to live 
And if we'd all climb together, we could climb the highest hill 
We could make the world we're living in a better place to live 

And if we'd love one another instead of finding faults 
We could afford the price of peace, love is all it costs 
Oh wouldn't it be great to live and sing in harmony 
Everybody take your brother's hand and sing my song with me 

La la la la la la la la la la la la
