lyrics
Love message
We’re the children of the whole world
We’re asking for a life of satisfaction and happiness
There’s no envy, there’s no fire
Nor feuding between neighbours

We’re the children of the whole world
We’re asking for a life of satisfaction and happiness
There’s no envy, there’s no fire
Nor feuding between neighbours

There’s no difference in colour
We originated as one, we’re united
The wars have ended in the world
Life is now full of peace

There’s no difference in colour
We originated as one, we’re united
The wars have ended in the world
Life is now full of peace

May you find security, equality and prosperity
May you find loyalty and great love
This is our passionate greeting card
It includes something beautiful from each neighbour

This is our prayer
This is what has been granted
We’re the children of the whole world
We’re asking for a life of satisfaction and happiness

La la lalala…
Lala lalalala…
Lala la lalala…
Lalalala lala lala…

La la lalala…
Lala lalalala…
Lala la lalala…
Lalalala lala lala…
