Music Changes the World

The World is Ours

 

From the sky to the sea, to the air that we breathe,
from the depths of the earth to the stars.
Light up the world, light up the world.
Run like you’re born to fly. Live like you’ll never die.
Dare what you dare to dream and ev’rything in between.
I had an epiphany one night, looking at the endless star-filled sky.

The world is ours. The world is ours.

  1. 1  The world is ours. Light up the world, light up the world, light up the world. Oh......The world is ours.

  2. 2  The world, the world, the world.
    We’re all we are. We’re all we are. We’re all we are. We’re all we are. The world is ours.

Sing out your battle cry under the stadium sky. Oceans and land divide, united we feel inside. The world is ours. The world is ours.

  1. 1  The world is ours. Light up the world, light up the world,

    light up the world. Oh......The world is ours.

  2. 2  The world, the world, the world.

    We’re all we are. We’re all we are. We’re all we are.

    We’re all we are. The world is ours.

Light up the world, light up the world, Come on! Oh, oh, oh. The world is ours. The world is ours.

  1. 1  The world is ours. Light up the world, light up the world,

    light up the world. Oh......The world is ours.

  2. 2  The world, the world, the world.

    We’re all we are. We’re all we are. We’re all we are. We’re all we are. The world is ours.

  1. 1  The world is ours, ours, ours. Light up the world. Ours, ours, ours. Light up the world.
    Light up the world. The world is ours.
    Light up the world. The world is ours!

  2. 2  We’re all we are. We’re all we are.
    We’re all we are. We’re all we are. The world is ours!

I’D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING

I’d like to build the world a home, and furnish it with love.
Grow apple trees and honeybees and snow white turtle doves.
I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.
I’d like to hold it in my arms and keep it company.
I’d like to see the world for once, all standing hand in hand.
And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the land.

1 That’s the song I sing. 2 1 What the world wants today. 2 1 That’s the way it will stay. 2 1/2 With the real thing. 2 1 That’s the song I sing, 2

IMAGINE

Imagine there’s no heaven. It’s easy if you try. No hell below us, above us only sky.
Imagine all the people living for today.
Imagine there’s no countries. It isn’t hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for and no religion too. Imagine all the people living life in peace.

You, you may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one. I hope some day you’ll join us and the world will be as one. Imagine no possessions. I wonder if you can.
No need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man. Imagine all the people sharing all the world.

You, you may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one. I hope some day you’ll join us and the world will be as one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MORE LOVE

 

 

Four simple words we sing today. With these four words we ought to pray, and take to heart this sacred phrase: More love, less hate.
It seems so easy on its face. Four words to heal the human race,
and yet we struggle to create move love, less hate, more love, less hate. For love we stand! More love in this land. Will you join?

Come take my hand. More love, less hate.
When fear and violence touch our lives, hate separates, seeks to divide. Our faith in love won’t be denied. More love, less hate.
Just as the night gives way to dawn, justice shines forth before too long. Until that day we will sing on. More love, less hate. More love, less hate. For love we stand! More love in this land. Will you join?
Come take my hand. More love, less hate.
For love, we stand! More love in this land. Will you join?
Come take my hand. More love, yes love. More love, less hate.
More love.

1st RAP CHORUS

People Killin’, people dyin’, children hurt, and you hear them cryin’.
Can you practice what you preach,
and would you turn the other check? Father, Father, Father, help us,

send some guidance from above,
‘cause people got me, got me questioning where is the love?

  1. 1  Where is the love? Where is the love?

  2. 2  The love, the love.

Where is the love, the love?

WHERE IS THE LOVE

There must be a way to change the world
to join our hearts and find the hope;
there must be a way that we can see the simple truth;
music changes the world.
There must be a way that we can sing
and show the world what we can be;
the simple truth music changes the world.
If we want to change, we will have to learn we can overcome one by one; lift each other up and we can believe in a world that can be.
There must be a way to change the world
to join our hearts and find the hope;
there must be a way that we can see the simple truth;
music changes the world.
TEACHERS There must be a way to change the world

to join our hearts and find the hope;
there must be a way that we can see the simple truth; music changes the world.

There must be a way that we can learn to join our hands and stand as one; there must be a way that we can see the simple truth
we know is there and as we sing music changes the world.
There must be a way to change the world.

Over the Rainbow

Israel Kamakawiwoʻole

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
And the dreams that you dream of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dream of, dreams really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to
Why, oh why can't I?

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
And the dream that you dare to
Why, oh why can't I?

Songwriters: E.Y. Harburg / Harold Arlen

Disney Medley

I will find my way. I can go the distance.
I’ll be there someday if I can be strong.
I know ev’ry mile will be worth my while.
I would go most anywhere to feel like I belong.

Come one, come all! Come one, come all!
Close the churches and the schools, it’s the day for breaking rules.
Come and join the Feast of Fools!
Once a year we throw a party here in town.
Once a year we turn all Paris upside down.
Ev’ry man’s a king and ev’ry king’s a clown.
Once again it’s Topsy Turvy Day.
It’s the day the devil in us gets released.
It’s the day we mock the prig and shock the priest.
Ev’rything is topsy turvy at the Feast of Fools!
Topsy Turvy! (Ev’rything is upsy daisy!)
Topsy Turvy! (Ev’ryone is acting crazy.)
Dross is gold and weeds are a bouquet. That’s the way on Topsy Turvy Day. Topsy Turvy Day!

Hakuna matata what a wonderful phrase!
Hakuna matata ain’t no passing craze.
It means no worries for the rest of your days.
It’s our problem free philosophy.
Hakuna matata. Hakuna matata. Hakuna Matata. It means no worries for the rest of your days.
It’s our problem free philosophy. Hakuna matata.

Cruella de Vil, Cruella de Vil, if she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will. To see her is to take a sudden chill. Cruella de Vil, Cruella de Vil.
The curl of her lips, the ice in her stare;
all innocent children had better beware.
She’s like a spider waiting for the kill. Look out for Cruella de Vil. Cruella, Cruella de Vil. Cruella, Cruella de Vil.

You’ve got a friend in me. You’ve got a friend in me.
When the road looks rough ahead
and you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed,
you just remember what your old pal said.
Son, you’ve got a friend in me. Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me. You’re gonna see it’s our destiny. You’ve got a friend in me. Yeah, you’ve got a friend in me. You’ve got a friend in me.

6

Can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are.
It’s enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far.
And can you feel the love tonight? How it’s laid to rest?
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds believe the very best, believe the very best.

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down then you’ll never know.
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon, for whether we are white or cooper skinned,
we need to sing with all the voices of the mountain,
need to paint with all the colors of the wind.
You can own the earth and still all you’ll own is earth until you can paint with all the colors of the wind.

God help the outcasts, hungry from birth.
Show them the mercy they don’t find on earth.
God help my people, they look to you still.
God help the outcasts or nobody will.I ask for nothing. I can get by, but I know so many less lucky than I. Please help my people, the poor and downtrod.
I thought we all were the children of God.
The poor and unlucky, the weak and the odd.
I thought we all were the children of God.

I’m gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
Well, I’ve never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair.
I’m gonna be the mane event, like no king was before.
I’m brushing up on looking down. Im working on my roar!
Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing. Oh, I just can’t wait to be king. Ev’rybody look left, ev’rybody look right.
Ev’rywhere you look, I’m standing in the spotlight.
Let ev’ry creature go for broke and sing.
Let’s hear it in the herd and on the wing.
It’s gonna be King Samba’s finest fling. Oh, I just can’t wait to be king!

Who put the glad in gladiator? Hercules!
Whose daring deeds are great theater? Hercules!
Hercules. Hercules. Hercules. Hercules.
Bless my soul Herc was on a roll, undefeated.
Riding high (and the nicest guy,) not conceited.
He was a nothin’, zero, zero. Now he’s a honcho. He’s a hero. He hit the heights at break-neck speed.
From zero to hero. Here is a hero. Now he’s a hero.

11


Yes, indeed. A star is born. Come on ev’rybody shout out loud. A star is born. Just remember in the darkest hour
within your heart’s the power for making you a hero too.
So don’t lose hope when you’re forlorn.
Just keep your eyes upon the skies.
Ev’ry night a star is right in sight a star is burning bright
a star is born. A star is born!

12


From the day we arrive on the planet and blinking,
step into the sun, there’s more to see than can ever be seen,
more to do than can ever be done.
There’s far too much to take in here, more to find than can ever be found. But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
keeps great and small on the endless round in the circle of life.
It’s the wheel of fortune. It’s the leap of faith.
It’s the band of hope ’til we find our place on the path unwinding
in the circle, the circle of life, of life.

MUSIC CHANGES THE WORLD

In order to make a true change in the world...
I will pledge to myself...
to have acceptance of others...to be more tolerant... to be a kind, considerate person...
I will look within myself...and only then can I make
a real change in the world.
