Testo trovato su Broadside Magazine n.78 del gennaio 1967.
Oh, if I could ring like a bell!
If I could swing like the clapper on a bell,
To tell the world that the wars are over,
Wouldn't that be the day!

Oh, if I could sound like the thunder,
If I could sing out the glory and the wonder,
To tell the world that the wars are over,
Wouldn't that be the day!

Wouldn't that be the morning!
Wouldn't that be the day!
The faces of folks would smile again
And the bombs and the missiles would rust away.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, if I could ring like a bell!
If I could swing like a clapper on a great bronze bell,
To tell the world that the wars are over,
Wouldn't that be the day!

Wouldn't that be the morning!
Wouldn't that be the day!
The news would sound the world around
And the stars would dance in the Milky Way.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, if I could ring like a bell!
If I could swing like the clapper on a heavenly bell,
To tell the world that the wars are over,
And won't that be the day.
