Children for Peace
Lyrics & Melody by Polly Wood & Erik Nielsen  2004/2007

 

CHILDREN FOR PEACE
 
Imagine a school where love is the rule
Can you see a mine where peace is the jewel? (2x)
 
Let’s open a school called the Academy of Children for Peace.
Lets all open a school for children to cultivate peace.
We can teach loving-kindness. We can open our hearts.
The children will teach us to keep them open,
Open to all other parts
Of life, of love, and law
Of life, of love, and law.
 
Imagine a school where love is the rule
Can you see a mine where peace is the jewel? (2x)
 
Lets enroll our president and seat him in the back of the class.
The children will teach him and if he finds peace
In his heart of hearts he will pass.
At naptime we’ll cuddle him and he’ll find delight
In things other than war.
Then he’ll pass on his post to the girl with the most
Peace in her heart and love to the core.
 
Imagine a school where love is the rule
Can you see a mine where peace is the jewel? (2x)
