"As I walk through
This wicked world,
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself,
'Is all hope lost?
'I there only pain and hatred and misery?'
"And every time I feel like this inside
There's only one thing I want to know:
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding? Oh!
What's so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?
"And as I walk on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes,
So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony, sweet harmony?…"
