If I ruled the World

March 16, 2008


What would you do if you ruled the world?

If I ruled the world, ev’ry day would be the first day of spring
Every heart would have a new song to sing
And we’d sing of the joy every morning would bring

If I ruled the world, ev’ry man would be as free as a bird,
Ev’ry voice would be a voice to be heard
Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred

My world would be a beautiful place
Where we would weave such wonderful dreams
My world would wear a smile on its face
Like the man in the moon has when the moon beams
If I ruled the world every man would say the world was his friend
There’d be happiness that no man coud end
No my friend, not if I ruled the world
Every head would be held up high
There’d be sunshine in everyone’s sky
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world

    If I rule the world, there will be lormaikai every morning
    Every duck would be toast
    And KFC will be free

    If I rule the world, there will be winter, spring, summer and fall
    In Malaysia every year
    No more sweat sweat everyday

    I like your idea of turning M’sia into a temperate country, LB. 🙂
    As for LMK every morning… hmmmmm.. I think my tastebuds might protest. 😛

    Oii! I think you want mamak stalls & all those local food everywhere in Europe.. not just Italy. 😛

    Glad to know you’re having fun & doing well there, Hooi Ching. 🙂


  14. If I ruled the world,
    I’d make the girls all kiss frogs,
    And if one turned into a prince,
    They can write about it on their blogs.

    And if you did not get a prince,
    I’d search for one and will not tarry,
    And when I find that handsome prince
    It is you I’d make him marry.

    But if that prince refused to go,
    To the church for you to marry,
    Then I’d kick him pretty low,
    And instead you get Prince Harry.
    [Or Prince William if you prefer]. 🙂

    Hahaha.. Good one, Dabs.
    I love it. 😀


  15. Sha Says:

    That people would be more patient, and there’ll be no evil thoughts, and happily ever endings are a right not a privelege.

    *hugs* long time since i’ve dropped by. take care ya?

    Very sensible, Sha. 🙂

    You take care too.. *hugs*
