What if Kids Could Vote?  

Gary Rasberry   Draft Oct 16/15

 

What if kids could vote? All around the world

Every boy and every girl—all around the world

All around the world

 

What if kids could vote? Starting today

What if kids could vote and truly have their say?

If we asked them to tell us how they really feel

If we asked them to tell us what is really real

 

How our world would start to change

If we let the children rearrange

All of the rules that we have put in place

For all of the ways we run the human race

 

What if kids could vote? All around the world

World leaders please take note—all around the world

All around the world

 

Nobody living on the street

Everybody gets enough to eat

You can feel the feeling all around the world

 

It’s time to rewrite history

With a future free of poverty

You can feel the feeling all around the world

All around the world

 

Imagine all the people—that’s what John would say

Imagine all the people living for today

All around the world

 

A hope that lights our days and nights

For a world that honours human rights

You can feel the feeling all around the world

 

Everybody gets to feel some love

The sea below the stars above

No more hate and no more fear

The whole thing becomes crystal clear

Everybody has a voice. Everybody has a choice

You can feel the feeling all around the world

 

What if kids could vote—all around the world

World leaders please take note—all around the world

Grab your hat and grab your coat—all around the world

 

All around the world.

All around the world

All we are saying is … all around the world
