I Have A Dream

Written By: Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou

There’s a man I think you’ve heard of
His name is Martin Luther King
He wanted a world of peace and love
He said “I have a dream”

Chorus:
I have a dream
I have a dream
I’ve been to the mountaintop and I’ve seen...
I have a dream

I know that this is possible
I know that this can be
If each one can learn to live with love
Then we can all be free

If you share this vision
You know it’s not a difficult thing
We can build a world of peace and love
And we can all be queens and “kings”

Beautiful Rainbow World

Written By: Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou

BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW WORLD

Today I woke up to see
A beautiful rainbow world
Won’t you dream it along with me?
A beautiful rainbow world

Beautiful rainbow, beautiful rainbow
Beautiful rainbow world
Beautiful rainbow, beautiful rainbow
Beautiful rainbow world

Red, black, yellow, brown and white
A beautiful rainbow world
Dancing together in the light
A beautiful rainbow world

No one lost or left behind
Beautiful rainbow world
Each one their own treasure finds
Beautiful rainbow world

Today I woke up to see
A beautiful rainbow world
Won’t you dream it along with me?
A beautiful rainbow world

Earth Day Anthem (We've Got The Whole World In Our Hands)

We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

We should recycle now - all that we can
Reduce, reuse, recycle now - all that we can
We should reduce, recycle - all that we can
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

Be kind to the plants and animals - in our land
Be kind to the plants and animals - in our land
Be kind to the plants and animals - in our land
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

Shake hands with sisters and brothers - throughout the land
Join hands with sisters and brothers - throughout the land
Join hands with sisters and brothers - throughout the land
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

Dream your bright dream - then do all that you can
Dream your bright dream - then do all that you can
Dream a bright dream - then do all that you can
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world, in our hands
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

Repeat Chorus
