We do not want only a piece
We aspire and want Peace
A mammoth piece of Freedom
For the north, south, west and east
We fervently assembled a very short list:
Liberty, Respect, Love, Fraternity
Tolerance, Happiness, Unity and Honesty
While we incessantly dream
Of Peace on Earth and Freedom
That’s all we desire to scream.
We don’t want a tiny piece
We hope and want Peace
An immense piece for the neighborhood
So that we can all savor a better mood
As we dream endlessly
Of Peace and Freedom
Here, there, over there
Evermore and everywhere.
