Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)

  • I don't know what the world may need
    But I'm sure as hell that it starts with me
    And that's a wisdom
    I've laughed at

    I don't know what the world may want
    But a good stiff drink it surely don't
    So I think I'll go and fix myself a tall one

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Is a new kind of tension
    'Cause the old one just bores me to death

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Is another folk singer
    Like I need a hole in my head

    I don't know what the world may need
    But a V8 engine's a good start for me
    Think I'll drive and find a place
    To be surly

    I don't know what the world may want
    But some words of wisdom could comfort us
    Think I'll leave that up to
    Someone wiser

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Are some true words of wisdom
    Like la la la la la la la la-la

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Is another folk singer
    Like I need a hole in my head

    I don't know what the world may need
    And I never grasped your complexities
    I'd be happy just to get
    Your attention

    And I don't know what the world may want
    But your long sweet body lying next to mine
    Could certainly
    Raise my spirits

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Is a new Frank Sinatra
    So I can get you in bed

    'Cause what the world needs now
    Is another folk singer
    Like I need a hole in my head

    What the world needs now
    What the world needs now
    Is a new Frank Sinatra so I can get you in bed

    What the world needs now
    What the world needs now
    Is another folk singer like I need a hole in my head Writer/s: DAVID ALLEN FARAGHER, DAVID CHARLES LOWERY, JOHN ARTHUR HICKMAN
