lyrics

Beautiful my daughter, such a gorgeous smiling face
Filled with so much wonder, so much joy, and so much grace
This world I brought you into, such a dark and scary place
Filled with so much sorrow, so much pain, so much disgrace

Oh it’s a hateful world
it’s a jealous world
it’s a cold and ugly world

it’s a vicious world
it’s a violent world
it’s a wicked wicked world

Beautiful my daughter, you know this is not the case
Filled with so much love and so much light is the human race
This world you bring me into through the warmth of your embrace
Filled with so much laughter, you show me this magic place

oh It’s a caring world
It’s a peaceful world
It’s a very giving world

oh it’s a prescious world
it’s a fruitful world
it’s a blessed blessed world

And when I tuck you into bed at night
And I pull you close to say
That I feel so blessed to be by your side
For another golden day
Then you look at me with your eyes so bright
And I know it’s gonna be okay

I see all the soldiers
hear the bullets flying round
You see all the flowers
hear the humming birds zoom round

i see it’s almost over
yes the wreckage of this land
you see a four leaf clover
and a fate that’s beyond man

oh It’s a foolish world
It’s a hopeless world
It’s a godforsaken world

But it’s a brilliant world
It’s an awesome world
It’s a whole and perfect world

Yes it’s a seething world
It’s a bloody world
It’s a wicked wicked world

But it’s a loving world
It’s a joyous world
It’s a blessed blessed world
