If I Had a Hammer Lyrics

Lyrics to If I Had a Hammer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaWl2lA7968 to sing along with Peter, Paul and Mary
If I had a hammer I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening all over this land
I’d hammer out danger, I’d hammer out a warning
I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a bell I’d ring it in the morning
I’d ring it in the evening all over this land
I’d ring out danger, I’d ring out a warning
I’d ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a song I’d sing it in the morning
I’d sing it in the evening all over this land
I’d sing out danger, I’d sing out a warning
I’d sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I got a hammer and I got a bell
And I got a song to sing all over this land
It’s the hammer of Justice, it’s the bell of Freedom
It’s the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

All I Really Need Music and Lyrics

At Community Meeting we started learning (or for our older kids, remembering) Raffi’s song “ALL I REALLY NEED” It was inspired by the UN’s 1979 International Year of The Child and the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Raffi wanted a song every child could sing, a song about the basics of life. It’s certainly a beginning. I hope your family will sing this together.

Declaration of the Rights of the Child. (FYI)

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

And I need the rain to fall
And I need the sun to shine
To give life to the seeds we sow
To give the food we need to grow, grow

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

And I need some clean water for drinking
(Drinking)
And I need some clean air for breathing
(Breathing)
So that I can grow up strong
And take my place where I belong

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

Yeah, put your hands together

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family, yeah

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

All I really, really need love in my family
I got to have it, I really need it, love in my family
All I really, really need, all I really need is love
All I really, really need, all I really need is love

All I really need is love, mmm, she loves you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, all I really need is love
All I really need is love, all I really need is love

“Here Comes the Sun”
by The Beatles
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right
Little darling
It’s been a long, cold lonely winter
Little darling
It feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right
Little darling
The smiles returning to the faces
Little darling
It seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Little darling
I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling
It seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
It’s all right
It’s all right

You Can Get It If You Really Want

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last

Persecution you must bear
Win or lose you’ve got to get your share
Got your mind set on a dream
You can get it, though harder them seem now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last
I know it, listen

Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the hotter the battle you see
It\’s the sweeter the victory, now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try, you’ll succeed at last

You can get it if you really want – I know it
You can get it if you really want – though I show it
You can get it if you really want
– so don’t give up now

If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
‘Cause there’s a million things to be
You know that there are

And if you want to live high, live high
And if you want to live low, live low
‘Cause there’s a million ways to go
You know that there are

Chorus:
You can do what you want
The opportunity’s on
And if you find a new way
You can do it today
You can make it all true
And you can make it undo
you see ah ah ah
its easy ah ah ah
You only need to know

Well if you want to say yes, say yes
And if you want to say no, say no
‘Cause there’s a million ways to go
You know that there are

And if you want to be me, be me
And if you want to be you, be you
‘Cause there’s a million things to do
You know that there are

Chorus

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
‘Cause there’s a million things to be
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
