lyrics
As I walk through,
This wicked world,
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself,
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
There's one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

And as I walked 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?

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony - sweet harmony?

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?
