A man stands on the corner holding a sign People yell at him as they drive by I wonder what they read, made them so upset I looked at the sign and all it said: One word: Peace Give me peace in the neighborhood. Peace One Word: Peace Some peace in my own backyard. Peace. One word A man in a foreign land kneels to pray And wonders where the bombs will fall today Our leaders tell me to fear him. You see Love conquers all is what I believe One word: Peace In the neighborhood. Peace One Word: Peace What we want in my own backyard Peace. One word Everybody's talking about it Everyone's got to have their say But to achieve it, there is only one way And it starts with me and the word and the word is: Peace Give me peace in the neighborhood. Peace One word: Peace Yes some peace and love in my own backyard Peace. One Word
