ALL OVER THE WORLD

I
Found something beautiful
In an alley out behind my office downtown
I
Found something unusual
Poking through a smoking heap of garbage at the city pound

(Refrain)
All over the world
People are thinking about it
All over the world
And all those things
They used to be so sure of
Well now they’re not so sure
They’re going to have to think about it some more

You
Won’t make me keep this to myself
And it’s nothing you could advertise or package or sell
You
Can’t just stick this on a shelf
or pocket it or lock it in a drawer or in a cell

(REFRAIN)


Bridge:
I
I remember when I was old
I
I remember times were cold
So cold it burned
But now a page has turned


We
Found something completely new
Just jawing over coffee one morning in a greasy spoon
We
found something new to do
The second that we reckoned that the future was coming soon

(REFRAIN)


And here
Here’s what’s been causing such a stir
what no one could imagine that one day might occur
Here
Is what can bring a tyrant to his knees
A little thing called honesty

(REFRAIN)
