There's one thing I've got to say
There's got to be some changes made
No more black or white
No more left or right
I'm gonna change the world, baby
I'm gonna change the world, yeah!
I'll switch the wrong to right (her on to right ?)
You can bet your life, baby, bet your life

Hold you far (cool your fire ?) and listen mister
Don't cause no trouble for my brother and sister
Why don't you look me in the face
Either that or leave my place
I'm gonna change the world, baby
I'm gonna change the world, waah yeah!
I'll switch the wrong to right (her on to right ?)
You can bet your life, baby, bet your life, my life yeah!

Forget about what your folks told you
Make up your mind just what you wanna do
Just accept people for what they are
Or this old world won't get very far
I'm gonna change the world, baby
I'm gonna change the world, oh yeah!
I'll switch the wrong to right (her on to right ?)
You can bet your life, bet your life

You can bet your life, just bet your life
Well (..?)
There's gotta be some changes made
I'm gonna change this world
I'm gonna change this world, waah yeah
