THERE’S A WHOLE LOTTA CHOICES OF ‘YES’ OR ‘NO’

A WHOLE LOTTA CHOICES OF ‘DO’ OR ‘DON’T’

I HOPE YOUR CHOICE WILL BE WITH ME

I CHOOSE PEACE

I CHOOSE PEACE

 

I say NO to hittin’, to cussin’, to fightin’

To drugs I say NO, NO, NO

To litterin’, to violence, to smokin’, to stealin’

To drinkin’ I say NO, NO, NO

 

YES to kindness, to carin’, to sharin’

To love I say YES, YES, YES

To music, to dancin’, to laughin’, to smilin’

To blessing the Earth, YES, YES, YES

 

IF IT LEADS THIS WORLD TO PEACE

IT GETS A GREAT BIG ‘YES!’ FROM ME   (CHORUS)

 

I say NO drunk drivin’, NO talkin’ back to parents

No jumpin’ on the bed, NO, NO, NO

NO cuttin’ down trees, NO pickin’ the flowers

Pullin’ hair, bein’ bad, NO, NO, NO

 

YES to bein’ helpful, doin’ dishes, babysittin’

Pickin’ up trash, YES YES YES

YES to plantin’ flowers, trees and tomatoes

Havin’ fun, goin’ swimmin’ YES YES YES

 

IF IT LEADS THIS WORLD TO PEACE

IT GETS A GREAT BIG ‘YES!’ FROM ME   (CHORUS)
