1. We Are the World – “We’re The World (USA For Africa)”

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We all are a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

[Chorus:]
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

1A We a re Family – We Are Family Sister Sledge
We are family, I got all my sisters with me, We are family
Get up ev’rybody and sing, We are family,I got all my sisters with me
We are family,Get up ev’rybody and sing Ev’ryone can see we’re together
As we walk on by (Hey) and we fly just like birds of a feather, I won’t tell no lie

2. It’s a Small World (Disney) it’s a world of laughter, a world or tears, it’s a world of hopes, it’s a world of fear
there’s so much that we share that its time we’re aware it’s a small world after all
CHORUS: it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small, small world There is just one moon and one golden sun, And a smile means friendship to everyone. Though the mountains divide And the oceans are wide It’s a small small world

6. This Land is your Land (Pete Seeger) [Chorus:] As I went walking that ribbon of highway I saw above me that endless skyway, I saw below me that golden valley, This land was made for you and me. I roamed and I rambled, and I followed my footsteps To the sparking sands of her diamond deserts,

8. Blowing in the Wind (Peter, Paul & Mary) How many roads must a man walk down. Before they call him a man? How many seas must a white dove sail Before she sleeps in the sand? How many times must the cannonballs fly Before they’re forever banned? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind The answer is blowing in the wind. How many years must a mountain exist Before it is washed to the sea? How many years can some people exist Before they’re allowed to be free? How many times can a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind The answer is blowing in the wind. How many times must a man look up Before he can see the sky? How many ears must one man have Before he can hear people cry? How many deaths will it take till he knows That too many people have died? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind The answer is blowing in the wind.
9. Imagine/John Lennon, (Beatles) 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 live as one

11. The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow (Annie) The sun’ll come out Tomorrow bet your bottom dollar That tomorrow There’ll be sun! Just thinkin’ about Tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs, And the sorrow ‘Til there’s none! When I’m stuck with a day That’s gray, And lonely, I just stick out my chin And grin, And say, Oh The sun’ll come out Tomorrow So ya gotta hang on Tïll tomorrow Come what may Tomorrow!Tomorrow!I love ya Tomorrow!You’re always A day A way!
