What the World Needs Now Is Love

Niente più che una bella canzone d'amore, ma davvero straziante, che dall'inizio alla fine aleggia lo spettro della morte e dell'infelicità, a causa del possibile, probabile, non ritorno dell'uomo amato dalla guerra in Vietnam... Alla fine del 1968 i morti fra i soldati americani in quel conflitto ammontavano già ad oltre 37.000...
Am I ever gonna see my baby again?
'Cause I'm gonna have to cry until then
Oh night and day in every prayer
All I can say is...

Am I ever gonna get him back in my arms?
I even had a gypsy read my palms
Oh I sure miss him
Love him so bad it's just a sin, a sin

Do you need him?
In the worst way
Do you want him?
Oh yes I do now
Do you love him?
In the worst way
Oh my it's been so long
When will it end

Oh am I ever gonna see my baby again?
Is he ever coming back tell me when?
Across the sea
A thousand miles away from me
Oh I miss him!

Will he think of me
Across the sea
Across the sea?

Am I ever gonna see my baby again?
'Cause I'm gonna have to cry until then
Am I ever gonna get him back in my arms?
I even had a gypsy read my palms
Oh tell me
Am I ever gonna see my baby again?
