This song is based around the chord sequence of Pachelbel’s Canon and uses samples from The Farm’s ‘Altogether Now’. Here’s the backing track if you want to sing it yourself (this would suit a BoyBand or a GirlBand of 4/5 people I think).

VERSE 1

There’s a hundred thousand reasons why we should all stay home

Lock our windows and our doors and minds, go to sleep alone

There’s just one reason why we should come together here

Together we’ll say “We’re not going away, until the light appears”

CHORUS 1

One Day of Hope, One Day of Joy

One Love war can never destroy

One Heart that guides us on our way

One Dream of Peace… One Day, Peace One Day

VERSE 2

There’s a hundred thousand people here, cryin’ out in pain

The war was never our idea, it’s someone else’s game

There’s just one reason why we’re workin’ through this night

Come dawn in this land we’re gonna take a stand, and turn these wrongs to rights

CHORUS 2

One Day of Hope, One Day of Joy

One Love war can never destroy

One Heart that guides us on our way

One Dream of Peace… One Day, Peace One Day

(INSTRUMENTAL BREAK)

CHORUS 3

One Heart that guides us on our way

One Dream of Peace… One Day, Peace One Day

Peace One Day, Peace One Day, Peace One Day
